Avoid Your Neighbors with iDoorCam

When I first saw the source article for iDoorCam, I wanted nothing more than to ridicule it for the lazy name and cheesy premise. After watching the video below, I can’t deny I’m intrigued.

iDoorCam is a simple device with a camera and a button that pretty much takes the place of your doorbell. When the button is pressed, an alert is sent to your phone, which is acceptable by anyone set up to receive iDoorCam alerts from your device.

You can then talk to them through the device’s speakers, or ignore the people at your door altogether.

In case you don’t know, Tinhte has a strong record of getting their hands on the pre-release Apple products, so we have all the right reasons to believe that the prototypes they showed should be close to what Apple is planning to launch next month. The folks at Tinhte received the prototype devices from a local accessory supplier PhukienGiare, who also supplied them with the pre-release mockups of the upcoming iPad Mini.
