How to Make a Raspberry Pi Smart Doorbell #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
Awesome video doorbell solution from Hacker Shack on Hackster.io. The DIY nature of the Raspberry Pi gives you more control over your privacy compared to some of the off the shelf smart doorbells.
Need another way to social distance yourself during the COVID-19 outbreak? Make this smart doorbell system so that you don’t have to interact with guests at your front door. The system can also be used as smart intercom system so that you can chat through internet calls with other people in your home or office.
The Raspberry Pi-powered Smart Doorbell opens a virtual meeting room for the guest when they press a button. It also sends a notification to your phone with a link to the same meeting room to chat with the guest. Make two of these doorbells and they can join the same meeting room to be used as a video intercom system.
