Mailbox, driveway, and door sensors

Last year we took a look at Postifier, a device that sits in a mailbox patiently awaiting any deliveries and alerting users on their smartphone when something arrives. Because Postifier relied on Блютуз technology, range was limited to around 100 ft (30 m), but a new product called Postybell extends range to »any distance» by relying on GSM technology.

The Postybell is designed to fit in any standard mailbox The Postybell app lets users know when a delivery arrives The Postybell app keeps a log of mailbox activity The Postybell app allows alerts to be forwarded to other numbers or email addresses
Aimed at those for whom a trip to the mailbox isn’t just a short stroll to the end of the driveway, Postybell consists of a proximity sensor and a GSM module. When the proximity sensor detects movement in the mailbox, the GSM module calls a specified number, which can be a mobile phone or a home phone. Of course, the GSM module will require a local SIM to work, which is one of the downsides when compared to competitor devices that use Блютуз or Wi-Fi.

With the use of the companion Postybell app, users can receive a warning when the Postybell battery is running low, forward alerts to different numbers or email addresses, manage multiple Postybell devices, and log mailbox activity. Currently, only an Android app has been developed, but the Postybell team is planning to develop an iOS version.
