While doorbells have remained pretty much the same over the years, Ding has been working behind the scenes to change that. They’ve launched the Ding Smart Doorbell which aims to be a simple yet smart solution for your modern home. Ding is comprised of three components – the doorbell button, the chime that’s placed in the home, and the free smartphone app. The button is pressed by a visitor, the chime dings inside while also calling your smartphone so that you can talk to the person at the door from anywhere.
Whether you want to tell the delivery person to leave your package or come back another time if you’re not there, or just screen the person there, Ding gives the option. You can even configure it to turn the chime off so you just receive quiet calls if your kid is sleeping.
The button is compact so it fits on most door frames easily and the chime can be wall-mounted or placed on any flat surface.
If you’re looking to add Ding to your life, they’ve launched a Kickstarter campaign to get one.
