AI-powered Belle = AI Assistant + Doorbell + Security Camera
Meet Belle, the world's 1st intelligent Wi-Fi doorbell that greets your visitors on your behalf and notifies you when you’re needed. Protecting your packages, waving off potential solicitors, and greeting your friends are only a few of Belle’s many talents. It’s like having a personal doorman for your family, except Belle stays on duty 24/7. Log on any time day or night to see what Belle sees and hear what Belle hears.
Belle can greet your visitors on holidays and open doors (need to work with compatible locks) for scheduled visitors without your presence. It creates a welcoming aura for the visitors by holiday greetings and it lets the visitors know what to do when you are not able to answer the ring.
- Instruct the Package Man with Voice Interaction
- Recognize Your Frequent Visitors with Facial Recognition
When the same person comes more than twice, Belle can recognize this person and have a more interpersonal conversation with him/her.
- Greet Your Visitors on Holidays
Belle is equipped with the talent of greeting you on major holidays. If your Belle talks to your visitors on Valentine’s Day like this: "Wishing you and your Valentine a happy day today. Sorry, I’m off the market. I’ve been dating an iPhone 6 for a while now. Just kidding." Imagine how surprised they will be!
- Distribute Visiting Requests to Respective Family Members
Once understanding whom the visitors are looking for, Belle will distribute the visiting requests to the respective home member via Netvue mobile App for the most responsive reply.
With our powerful Camera and App, live views, playbacks, and phone alerts are readily in your hands. You can access Netvue X - the artificial intelligence system in the App to enable/disable the AI functions of Belle.
- Watch Your Door 24/7 From Your Phone or Echo Show with Live Streaming
Belle is like a magic window from where you can see everything taking place around your home. Its HD live streaming and infrared night vision show you the real-time views in front of your doors with clear and smooth videos days and nights.
This is a demo video to show Belle is functioning well with the phone. There are some noises and echoes in this video since we have to place phone very close to Belle for video demo purpose that is rarely a scenario of real-world usage.
- Get the Accurate Notification with Advanced Motion Alert Settings
The motion alert keeps you informed promptly when something gets near to your door. Either a stray cat or a sketchy stranger, all will be captured under Belle’s complete surveillance. We’ve upgraded the motion alert to avoid frustrating false alerts. With Belle, you can customize motion detection zones and sensitivity to avoid false alerts like traffic on the street.
- See Clear Details Even in Any Light with Dynamic Exposure
With Belle, you can get a clearer view by tapping the area in the live view, where Belle dynamically adjusts the exposure of the image for optimal image quality.
- Monitor, Record and Playback Anytime with 24/7 Recording
Functional as a surveillance camera, Belle captures everything occurring ahead of your doors. For either the security purpose or the precious moments recorded, you can retrieve the footage from Netvue Cloud Service whenever you want and share the video clips on AWS to offer you top-level data privacy.
Work with Echo Show/Fire TV Designed as an Alexa compatible product, Belle can be commanded by Alexa. Just speak to Alexa, it would collect data from Belle and show you the front door view.
Super Useful Functions Even in Poor Internet Connection Belle was the first in the industry to support audio-only ring call so that you can answer your visitors easily when the Internet connection is not optimal. It also supports voice-to-text reply to visitors, saving you a lot of time and trouble.
To ensure a safe, stable and quick data storage and access, Netvue Cloud is hosted on AWS (Amazon Web Services) with reliable performance and global node distribution. With the free plan, you can use basic functions like live view, 2-way audio, instant alert and moment capture image storage, Netvue X (the AI assistant with facial recognition).
You'll have a 14-day free trial for the premium plan if you'd like to experience functions like 24/7 cloud recording.
To make it easier for visitors, we innovated the Belle design by introducing the super large button to the doorbell. It not only makes the button more visible but also delivers a super exotic pressing experience unlike any doorbell in the market.
Belle is always illuminated at night, always be waiting and welcoming you and your visitors.
With all these exciting features and functions like no one else in the market, we offer limited units at SUPER early bird price of only $129 for our customers. The rate even includes worldwide shipping! Act quickly or all will be gone soon...

Risks and challenges
We have tremendous confidence in our design and manufacturing, and have even done a small-batch production run, but as with any hardware project, there are always potential risks associated with manufacturing and supply chain logistics based on the number of orders we receive.
Our team has already successfully delivered home security products to market. We understand the unique challenges of home security hardware and are familiar with how to avoid and mitigate any issues that arise. Additionally, we have also established trusting relationships with our global logistics companies.
But as per Belle, we may encounter these challenges
1. It takes long to debug and optimize the stability of the overall AI software system. In this aspect, customer experience may be affected due to insufficient debugging time.
2. The proper selection of speakers and microphones affects the accuracy of AI speech recognition, so there is a risk in the selection and debugging of these two devices.
3. Complex assembly process of big button may cause the risk of delaying.
We are committed to delivering Belle on time with the high quality. Should there be any uncontrollable factor contributing to delays, we will keep you, our awesome backers, up to date, and you can also reach out to us anytime!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
