Home security is no longer a luxury, but a necessity, especially in metropolitan cities. Thanks to advancements in technology, we have plenty of options now, a popular choice being intercom systems. Instead of a traditional doorbell, which only alerts you to the presence of someone at the door, an intercom lets you interact with them in real time. It also allows you to check if the person at the door might be a threat or not.

However, you need to be at home when you use the intercom. If you are outside, you will miss any important visitors, deliveries, etc. Thankfully, there is a better solution that allows you to take care of your home even when you're out.

Well, Codebell has introduced an innovative solution that aims to revolutionize communication through the innovative Car Safety Tag technology. It comprises a vehicle tag with a scannable QR code, which you can stick to your vehicle. If someone wishes to communicate with you, all they need to do is scan the QR code, and they’ll instantly be connected to you via a audio/video call.

Innovative, isn’t it? Well, this isn’t the only challenge Codebell tackles!

Let’s delve a little deeper into the core issues Codebell's car safety tag solves and explores how its technology enhances convenience, safety, and efficiency.

1. Hardware and Accessibility

Typically, traditional intercom systems are hardwired and require complex installations. They rely on physical connections between units, limiting their accessibility and scalability. Even if you opt for wireless options, the hardware has range and battery limitations. Also, expanding, modifying, or repairing them often requires complex rewiring or additional hardware installations.

On the other hand, Codebell utilizes a scannable QR code and a mobile application. It leverages existing smartphone connectivity, allowing homeowners to interact with visitors from anywhere, eliminating the need for physical infrastructure. Its wireless and app-based architecture allows homeowners to add or modify units easily without extensive modifications, providing a cost-effective solution.

2. Communication Options

ATraditional intercoms often provide only audio communication, with only the premium ones offering video support. However, users need to be present at home to receive alerts and communicate with the visitors at their gates.

Codebell offers video alerts and live previews, enabling homeowners to see and communicate with visitors in real time. Here's the best part: you don't need to be at home because you receive notifications and alerts on your smartphone! You can check who's at your door and communicate with them from anywhere.

3. Visitor & Delivery Experience

If you're not at home, a visitor has no way to communicate with you, unless they already have your contact information. They'll press the doorbell/intercom button, wait a while, and then leave. If you have any urgent packages coming in, you'll have to rely on the goodwill of the delivery person to reach out to you for further coordination. However, they could leave and issue a fake delivery confirmation, or leave the package at your door, vulnerable to thieves.

Codebell eliminates this communication gap. The visitor only needs to scan the QR code on your door, and they'll connect directly to you via video call, no matter where you are, making coordination easy and seamless. No download or installation needed!

4. Privacy and Security

If you're not at home, you may be tempted to leave your contact details on your front door, because an intercom wouldn't be of too much help. However, this leaves you vulnerable to scam calls or financial fraud.

Codebell addresses privacy and security concerns by eliminating the need to share personal phone numbers. Visitors can communicate with homeowners through the app without compromising privacy. The inbuilt geo-fencing also ensures that the QR code only connects to a video call when scanned at your doorstep and nowhere else.

Codebell's QR Video Intercom is built on the cloud, reducing maintenance costs.
