It seems the trend right now is for household items to become smart, with integrated technologies and connections to one another for overall system monitoring. One of the normal items in your home you might not have thought about upgrading is your doorbell, but Chui might just change your mind.
Designed to work on a standard doorbell transformer, this device will easily slide in to replace an existing doorbell, but does so much more. With its integrated camera you can easily pair it to Wi-Fi using only a QR code. Once it is online, the system can use facial recognition to allow it to trigger actions depending on who is at the door. Want to unlock the door, turn on the lights and start playing music? No problem - just create the triggers and Chui can do the rest.
Chui is available for pre-order now for $199.

Trey was born into a tech career. Instead of going to summer camp as a child, Trey spent summers working at the local news station with his father, an Emmy award winning news director. He honed his audio skills singing in a band, and later worked as a lighting and audio technician for a theme park. Within two years he became the lead technician for the entire park, which included a fully operational CNN sponsored TV station, a full theater and a circus. Later, he became the lead lighting and audio tech for one of the Ringling Bros. circuses, with a stint as a clown for the pure joy of performing. It was at Ringling that he met his wife, who he calls the most beautiful, loving, and funny person he has ever met, and who is also the creator of the 3000 Brigade. Trey was a performer with the 3000 Brigade for nine shows, as well as hosting the 3000 Brigade Podcast, while still doing media on the side. Trey currently edits and cleans audio for PLuGHiTz shows and has also been a special events host.
