Here are 5 gadgets you’re not going to want to do without:


Have you ever wanted to see who is at the door when your doorbell rings, without opening it? Or wondered who is loitering at your gate without going out to it? Or maybe you’d like to see who called on you while you were out?

Now you can with the advanced technology of the Wi-Bell, the smart video doorbell that not only enables you to view who is at your door via the Smart APP, but allows you to talk to the person who is there too.

With the Wi-Bell smart video doorbell you don’t have to physically get up to see who is there and you don’t have to be at home either.

Here is how it works:

  1. The visitor arrives at your door or gate and presses the bell.
  2. The data is transmitted using your WiFi network
  3. Notification is received on your smart phone, and you can view and communicate with your visitor.
