About the hack[]

Intercomms are now for everyone! Instead of a regular doorbell now your Doorbell has a camera! There is an accompanying application which can be installed on phones, tvs &tablets! On each device a notification is presented on a phone along with the picture and a button to allow entry. Pressing the button opens the lock!
