The two-in-one cordless system and video monitor combines a versatile landline phone, multiple handsets, and an easy-to-install digital camera on the doorbell. When someone rings the doorbell, a photo is instantly and discreetly taken and sent to each phone handset. He can then choose to enable the microphone to speak to the person at the front door or just stream video to further observe the visitor before choosing to answer the door…or not. No need to miss a moment of the big game or lose a turn at the poker table when you've got this handy device!

The Renny Home Base Station & Ringer connects one or two mobile phones wirelessly—no need for landline or home-phone system for it to work.

As long as the cell phone itself is in range, this station and ringer device shows who is calling, allows for calls to be answered, responds to voice command, offers multiple ringtone options and even streams music from a smartphone with its powerful loudspeaker that employs 3D digital dynamic bass engine technology. It can also be used in a car as a portable Bluetooth, hands-free speakerphone without having to connect any wires or undertake any installation.
