Have you ever noticed the doors of retail stores? They have a motorized sliding door system that automatically opens and closes when a customer approaches. Now it’s time to bring this technology into your home. The San Francisco Bay area-based company, Lychee Things come up with the ‘SmartSlydr’. A complete smart door device that turns our existing sliding door into a smart one.
However, this easy-to-install device lets you control the doors with a simple smartphone app or by voice commands. Not only open the doors, but the SmartSlydr also allows you to monitor and check your door’s activity. In other words, the system will send a notification to your smartphone if there is any activity on your door or window.
So from the comfort of your couch, you can open the window for fresh air circulation or let your dog go outside. Moreover, the SmartSlydr works with smart home voice assistance devices such as Alexa, Google Home, and Siri. As a result, this device will be very helpful for the elderly and people with disabilities.
It also comes with a wireless tag for pets. So they can easily access the door when you’re away from the home. According to their campaign, the installation process is very simple and doesn’t require any power tools. When comes to security, the system automatically locks the door when it’s in the closed position.
Further, there are two different variants are available. The SmartSlydr is ideal for the door size from 3ft to 6ft while the SmartSlydr Max works with door sizes between 6ft to 10ft. Currently, the SmartSlydr is raising funds on Indiegogo. Their planned retail price for the device is US$448. But, if you are interested you can get one for an early bird pledge of US$269.
