Notifying Doorbell Sends You a Text and Pic When Rung [Video]

By Jason Fitzpatrick on May 9th, 2012

This DIY doorbell project turns your regular doorbell into a notification system that pushes out a text message and a picture of the bell ringer to your cellphone.

Courtesy of Clement Storck, a project contributor in the Make:Projects user-contributed project wiki, the Notifying Doorbell combines an Arduino board, a security camera, and the free PushingBox service to alert you every time someone rings your doorbell.

Watch the video above to see it in action and then hit up the link below to see how to build one for yourself.

If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.
