While smart home technology includes everything from turning on the heat to monitoring air quality, the simple job of a doorbell has been oddly overlooked until the arrival of Ding. A collaborative effort between the London-based startup and creative consultancy MAP (an arm of the industrial design studio Barber & Osgerby), the smart doorbell is a three-part system made up of an exterior button, indoor Wifi speaker (cleverly named Chime), and a corresponding iPhone app. When visitors come to the door, Chime functions as a normal doorbell, but the app allows residents to communicate with whomever is at the door remotely.

What makes Ding so special it that it’s not only simple to use, but was designed to integrate into your home decor. Plus, it’s slender enough to fit on a door frame.

The fabric-covered Chime speaker comes in a variety of textiles and can either sit on a shelf or be mounted on a wall.
