The new smart doorbell installed in the front door of a house in the Czech Republic will not alert anyone when the doorbell rings, the country’s telecommunications regulator has announced.
The installation of the door-bells by a company called Doorbell Solutions, located in the town of Grup, in western Czech Republic, was approved by the countrys telecommunications regulator on Wednesday.
The new technology will also not trigger alarms when the doors are locked or unlocked, the regulator said.
The company is expected to start delivering the smart door-beams to residential and commercial buildings in the next few months.
“The doorbells installed today are the first smart door systems in the world to use a ‘doorbell signal’ technology to identify people with disabilities,” the regulator’s statement said.
“The door bell system uses the sound of the sound sensor and the information collected from the door bell signal to make an audible sound and alert the person who needs to use the door.”
The door-walls are connected to an app and a smartphone app, and can be activated remotely using an app.
The door’s internal structure, which is made of a plastic and aluminum frame, can be controlled remotely via an app, which enables people with physical disabilities to turn their wheelchair into a door.
The technology is currently available only in Sweden and Denmark.
The system can be set to alarm when the alarm ring is raised, the regulators said, adding that it can be turned off.
The devices will be available for €3,700 ($4,150) for a set of five.
