Retrofit Peephole – banish squinty security for ever, until the batteries run out


So we’re thinking you’re probably fed up of squinting through that tiny hole in your door, and you’re thinking…I wish there was a better way. Well there is. Kinda. This Retrofit Peephole replaces the simple organic as nature intended lens system with a fully electronic 1.3 megapixel camera based micro porthole.

The benefits should be obvious. Not only do you get to see those baby kissing doorstepping politicians in full colour on a 2.5 inch LCD, but when the batteries go flat, you won’t have to answer the door at all. Just plead peephole incapacity. The landlord will forgive. $129.95. And hey, it’s got zoooom too.

 Replacing your existing peephole, its lens provides a wide 96º field of view, and it uses a 1.3 megapixel CMOS, the same image sensor employed by digital cameras. When you turn it on, the image of the person standing outside your door is displayed on the device’s 2 1/2″ TFT screen, allowing adults–even children who may not be able to reach a standard peephole–to clearly see who is visiting.
