iDoorCam is described as a "digital, Wi-Fi enabled doorbell" that allows you to see, hear and talk to visitors at your front door using an app on a compatible smartphone or tablet.

The device combines a doorbell button, a video camera, a built-in microphone and a speaker to a small housing that measures just 7mm in diameter.

When a visitor rings the doorbell, an alert will be sent to your smartphone or tablet where you can ignore it, or choose to accept the call. The device will then display a video feed, and you can hear and speak to the visitor at your front door through your smartphone or tablet.

The iDoorCam replaces an existing, hardwired doorbell.

The iDoorCam will work even when you aren't at home, provided your smartphone or tablet has wireless or 3G/4G data available. iDoorCam says the device will initially be compatible with iPhone and iPad devices, with an Android app expected to launch early next year.

The iDoorCam will work internationally, including Australia, but requires an existing hard wired doorbell. The product will simply replace the door chime button on the outside of your house, and attaches to the existing doorbell's power wires.

The device will work in all weather conditions, and the camera is infrared so it claims to function at night time. iDoorCam says the product is finished in a polycarbonate plastic that will not rust and not interfere with the Wi-Fi signal that communicates with your smartphone.

The iDoorCam is initially compatible with iPhone and iPad devices, but an Android app is coming soon.

iDoorCam says the camera feed can be opened on demand, even when the doorbell isn't pressed. Users will also have the option to disable the internal door chime and/or the mobile alerts.

iDoorCam is currently available to pre-order through crowdfunding platform Indiegogo for US$164.95. The company says it expects to begin shipping pre-orders in October.

Dynabook Portégé X30L-G

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

MSI PS63

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
