What is it? Xchime is a next generation video doorbell. Not only can it be used as a WiFi-enabled HD (1080p) video doorbell, it can also be used as a remote-controlled garage door opener, an indoor video camera and more.
What does the X mean in Xchime The X represents ‘extraordinary’. Xchime’s mission is to build an extraordinary doorbell to make people’s lives easier.
Who created it? Xchime was created by ex-Motorola engineers who have extensive experience in bringing technologically-advanced devices to life.
Why should we use it? You’ll be able to use Xchime to simplify your life by keeping tabs on your front door anytime, from anywhere. You can use Xchime to help you manage deliveries, turn down unwanted solicitors, and feel safer and more secure in your home when you’re alone.
How much does it cost? Our Indiegogo backers will be receiving our very best deals, saving up to 60% on Xchime’s $249 MSRP.
Where can we buy it? Following our pre-order launch on Indiegogo, you’ll be able to purchase it on Xchime.com or Amazon.com.
Do I need to pay monthly? There is no monthly charge for basic usage. However, if you choose to upgrade to cloud recording, there’s a minimal charge of $2.99/month to cover the costs of cloud storage and playback bandwidth.
What do we get when we order? All backers will receive the Xchime video doorbell, and you’ll be able to choose whether you’d like to purchase an add-on garage door opener accessory and/or a smart light bulb.
Why are you crowdfunding? We’ve already finished the development of this product and need your help to lower the cost for mass production. We also want to provide our earliest supporters with the best pricing, which is why the earlier you purchase, the better the deal!

 

What features are available? 1. Two-way audio/one-way video: When someone rings the doorbell, it will send a notification to your phone. Then, using the Xchime app, you’ll be able to converse with (and see) whoever is at your door.
2. Motion detection: An intelligent motion sensor is built into the doorbell. The doorbell can detect people, even if the doorbell is not rung. Cloud recording begins immediately when this happens.
3. Live-view: If you want to monitor the front door in real-time, simply open the app to access Xchime’s continous live stream.
4. Add-on smart-light bulb: You can automatically link a smart light bulb to your Xchime. In the evening, the smart light bulb will automatically turn on if the doorbell is rung. This makes the home appear occupied and can dissuade potential theives from attempting to break in.
5. Weather resistance: Thanks to its patent pending technology, Xchime can be used at a wide temperature range of -40˚F to 150˚F, enabling it to be used effectively in rain, snow or intense humidity.

7. No latency: When the doorbell rings, a video connection to your smartphone is established immediately, without a delay. Additionally, when Xchime’s motion-sensing technology detects action, video recording begins instantaneously.
8. Garage-door backup: Think you forgot to close your garage door? Seeing is believing. With the add-on garage accessory, simply open the Xchime app (no matter how far away you are from home). If the garage door is still open, you’ll receive an option to tap your phone and close it.
9. Indoor video camera: Xchime doubles as a regular indoor video camera to view or record any suspicious activity.
