About this project
WHAT IS i-BELL?
I-Bell is the first stand-alone doorbell
manufactured in the UK that will connect direct to your smartphone wherever
you are, whatever you are doing.
It will connect to your wireless router and ring on your smartphone enabling you to see and talk to whoever is at your door.
The wired or wireless doorbell as we know it today has been around for nearly 200 years without any radical change.
Here at i-Bell we believe that radical change is now here.
The way you answer the front door is about to change forever. This simple device will enable you to open up a host of smart features to your connected home via your phone.
NEVER MISS A DELIVERY AGAIN!
When the courier turns up at your front door and rings your i-Bell it simply calls you enabling you to see and talk to them, wherever you are and whatever you are doing.
We all lead very busy lifestyles and we are not at home 24-7. Whether you're at work or at play, in the gym or on holiday, i-Bell will give you the time to control your life.
HOW WILL I-BELL FIT INTO MY LIFE
Our team have been working on the design and features for the past year, trying to get it right for you. Ensuring our device is simple to use, easy to connect and simple to operate.
We have manufactured i-Bell from the finest materials and have tested the device in all exterior weather conditions.
We had to make sure that each i-Bell device could be securely installed with ease to any wall. Therefore each device comes with security screws that can only be removed with a security unlocking screwdriver.

MAINS PLUG AND LITHIUM BATTERY
i-Bell can be used through the mains plug or the rechargeable battery, and the built in high definition, wide angle night vision camera allows perfect clarity at all times of the day.
ALL OPERATING SYSTEMS
We knew that i-Bell had to be compatible with multiple users and across a variety of operating systems on smartphones and tablet devices.
As well as allowing access via your Windows or Mac laptop or desktop computer.
i-Bell will also ring in your home as well as on your phone. It can do everything essential for you, in your smart connected home, that you would want!
We had to make sure that it has features that will make you feel safe and secure and ensure that it makes your busy 21st century lifestyle easier. That’s why i-Bell will have these additional features with cloud access to store images of anyone calling at your home, a motion detector, remote video activation for surveillance and security. Concierge Service and Voicemail.
One day all doorbells will be made this way.
OUR JOURNEY SO FAR
Risks and challenges
Here at i-Bell we have a great amount of both business and technical experience which means that we are fully aware that on no occasion does a new venture” simply happen”, without having to first overcome what can sometimes be extremely hard challenges.
We have worked very hard during the prototyping period, to ensure that we have a product that is ready for volume manufacturing and consistent with the highest quality controls and performance levels.
In order to maintain the highest standard that is required for such a complex product, we have forged supply chain and manufacturing partnerships with some of the most reputable UK based companies, giving us the ability to tackle any unforeseen issues as they may arise, without barriers or delay.
Lastly, we are equally aware that even the best ideas, if not funded correctly, will simply remain “ideas”.
Therefore, we recognise that your support is an essential part of making this whole project a reality and send out a huge Thank You for getting involved.
For our part, we promise to deliver to your door (if you’re in to receive it), the most up to date Wi-Fi camera doorbell for your connected home.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
On the contrary, by talking to someone at your door and simply saying you can't get to the door right now, you are less likely to be burgled compared to if no one answers your door. Plus i-Bell takes a series of snapshots of everyone who rings and this is stored in the cloud and can be retrieved by the owner.
Yes, i-Bell will be able to connect and notify multiple users. This will be administered through your account once setup. The account set-up will be a simple and straightforward process.
