Its sibling can already control your lock. So it only makes sense to let the August Doorbell Cam see who's at the door. Like the aforementioned lock, the cam was designed by Yves Behar, and integrates a one-way, 140-degree HD video camera, speaker, mic, and motion sensors into a single stylish plate. The system lets you see who's been at your door, even if they don't ring the bell, communicate via audio, and even buzz visitors, all from your phone, even if you're not at home. As an added bonus, the unit also acts as a Wi-Fi relay for the Smart Lock, letting you lock and unlock your door from anywhere.
Simple to set up and environmentally friendly, the Garden Igloo is an interesting alternative to the backyard hideout. The frame of this geodesic dome is made with PVC struts and high-strength nylon joints, and covered by a transparent PVC cover. It's over seven feet tall at its highest point and nearly 12 feet in diameter, so there's plenty of room inside, and should you decide you'd rather have shade than shelter, the optional canopy cover offers added privacy from the rear and an open entrance that's ideal for warmer weather.
