CHICAGO, June 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Home security and automation just got a bit smarter today with the launch of Xchime's Indiegogo campaign.

Garages are one of the entry points for criminals, typically when home owners forget to (completely) close the garage door. With an additional Xchime unit set up in the garage, instantly view the status of your garage door from your mobile device. Open or close it with one touch from our mobile app, using the optional garage door opener kit add-on accessory. Light is also a major deterrent to would-be thieves. Integrate your smart light bulbs with Xchime to remotely turn on or off exterior lights.

Say Goodbye to Lag

Lag time is a common complaint with other video doorbells. Anyone who's used one knows the frustration of having a 7 or 8 second delay from when someone pushes the doorbell to when you can see and hear what's going on. Xchime's crack team of engineers worked hard to significantly reduce lag time, getting it closer to real-time.

Fits Any Budget

Leading video doorbells range from $199 to $249. Early backers of Xchime can get units for only $129 each, making the Xchime a perfect fit for any home budget.

Xchime features also include:

-HD video (1080p)

-Two-way audio

-Video live-view and communication

-Latency (lag)-free streaming

-Night vision

-Wide-view angle

-Cloud recording

-Wide operating temperature range (-40F to 150F)

-Dual power supply (16-24VAC & 12-24VDC)

The Xchime Story

Xchime isn't your typical inventor in a garage. The company boasts experienced engineers with backgrounds from Motorola and Qualcomm, along with seed funding from Ufrate and other angel investors to the tune of $420,000. "To fit in each doorframe, Xchime uses the standard rectangular shape design similar to other doorbells on the market, but what makes it stand out from competitors is what's on the inside," says CEO Gary Bi. "Our team used our experience in Real-Time Communications to reduce the lag that other video doorbells have, fulfilling the promise of almost instant views of who's at your door. And why stop there? Home security is about the entire perimeter, not just the front door. Our add-ons mean you can secure your garage and control lights through Xchime for more peace of mind."
