Yale Digital Recording Door Viewer updates the old school peephole

yale-digital-door-recorderMost doors come with a peephole so that you have an idea of who is knocking on your front door, before you actually unlock the bolt and let that pizza delivery boy in. The thing is, is there a better way to do things in this day and age? The answer is apparently yes, and with the €137.55 Yale Digital Recording Door Viewer, you know for sure that it will offer something different and yet updated to keep up with the times.

With the Yale Digital Recording Door Viewer, you will be informed of who is right there in front of your door with a simple glance. All that you need to do is to view the person standing there via the 3.5” display, and whatever you see will also be recorded on a 512MB microSD memory card for posterity and security purposes. Heck, you can also opt to record at night or in low light conditions simply because the camera itself is infrared and has a night mode function. All recorded images will be accompanied by a date and time stamp for easier reference, and it is powered by a quartet of AA batteries.
