The peephole in a door is a very useful product that has been around for years and allows you to see who is at the door while remaining behind the security of a locked door. But is has now gone digital with a new version from home security experts Swann Security that activates a camera every time the doorbell is rung and gives you a clear high resolution colour image of who is at the door on a 7mm LCD screen. Not only that, it also records up to 100 colour images.
The camera is able to operate day and night, is weather resistant and has a 60 degree viewing arc. It has a white gloss finish that will suit any home décor and the monitor supports up to a 2GB SD card for recording the images. All recorded images can be transferred to a PC via the USB cable supplied with the pack and which also serves as the battery recharging source.
It is called the Swann DoorEye™ and it is an easy to install DIY product that is available nationally for $119 from Dick Smith Electronics and Bunnings.
