So I would blindly answer the door, not knowing who it was going to be. And as a 4’11 girl, it was intimidating and kind of scary to open my door to whoever. I wish that I had Chui was when I was in college. Chui is facial recognition software that allows people to come in and out of the house. Basically, Chui is a super smart doorbell. The doorbell recognizes who’s ringing your doorbell and sends a notification straight to your phone or tablet. Then you can respond with audio, live video feed, or an action to unlock your door. So you can be thousands of miles away from your home, and you can open the door for your next door neighbor who needs to borrow a cup of sugar. This is something that I could’ve really used at school. Heck, it’s something that I could use now! If you want to learn more […]
