Apartment Security Made Easy With the Brinno Peephole Viewer Beth Snyder November 17, 2011 We’re all familiar with peepholes, right? That distorted fish-eye view of who is standing outside your door that makes them look like a cross between a Salvador Dali painting and a bad acid flashback? Yeah, that. Wouldn’t it be neat if you had a better way of seeing who was outside without giving away that you’re home, but also that gave you a chance at figuring out who it actually is? Now you do! The Brinno Peephole Viewer is actually a two-part digital camera-type system. The part you look at is a 3-inch LCD screen, and not only compensates for fisheye distortion but has a brightness enhancer so you can see who is outside even at night. It’s easy to see for people of any height as opposed to the traditional peephole as well. All you need to do is push the button and the screen lights up for one minute, which should be plenty of time for you to identify your visitor. You can also take a picture of your visitor and save it to a microSD card (you’ll have to provide your own) in case of an unwanted visitor. It only takes three steps to install and comes with everything you need for immediate operation, including the peephole itself, the peephole viewer, the base flange and washer, the tightening tool, and two AA batteries. It’ll fit any door 35-57mm (1.38-2.24) thick. Optional accessories include a motion sensor to trigger the peephole without requiring you to push the button and a knock sensor. All this spying goodness can be yours for the pretty low price of about $100.00 US. Source: Coolest Gadgets Share This With The World!
