Technology & Design Come Together for Added Security


It’s the beginning of the busiest time of year.  On top of work, we can all expect more visitors, the need for more service calls getting ready for holiday company, and more deliveries.  But what if your busy schedule keeps you away from home and you aren’t able to be there for some of these?  Echo Workshop has the perfect solution – DoorBird.

With DoorBird you can expect a high-quality camera and intercom system that allows you to keep track of everyone coming to visit.  Are you expecting a delivery?  With DoorBird you can talk to the delivery driver and instruct them to leave the package with your neighbor or open the garage door for them via your smart phone or tablet from anywhere in the world.   

On top of convenience, DoorBird also provides added security.  Did you know that often times burglars ring doorbells to see if somebody is home before attempting entry?  With DoorBird you can make your presence known to deter burglars and porch pirates. 

DoorBird is compatible with most smart home systems, making adding one at your front door or gate a convenient choice, and with multiple choices of materials and surfaces to choose from, you can easily find something that compliments your home.  Do you have a specific look already in mind?  DoorBird allows you to design your own custom system with their easy-to-use configurator. You can define the dimensions, style and functions individually and choose from over 50 materials and colors. 

Contact Echo Workshop today to learn how technology and design come together for an aesthetically pleasing, high-functioning solution for additional convenience and added security.

Lighting that turns on at various times and in various rooms can be a great deterrent to burglars.  And with a control system like Savant, it is easy to set up various scenes throughout your home.  Your lighting system can be programmed so that it follows your regular schedule, making it appear that you are home.


Let’s start with the basics – a video doorbell from Ring or Doorbird.  Not only can you safely check to see who is dropping by when you’re home, you can also see and talk to visitors from anywhere.  This gives you the ability to not only protect your home, but protect your family by intervening when solicitors or strangers come knocking.
