Located inside your post box, postybell is a device that sends an alert to your phone when you’ve got mail. It works from any distance - even if your post box is in another country.

Get a notification each and every time you receive new mail -  no matter the distance of your post box. postybell’s amazing sensor detects new movements inside your postbox and sends you a notification, so you don't waste any time checking empty boxes.


We are consuming knowledge at an online pace, in every area of our lives. That is, almost every area. postybell finally marches post mail (A.K.A snail mail) to the online era, informing you when you receive letters or packages to your mailbox, wherever you are.

Now, we know attempts have been made to create a device similar to postybell. Yet, they all relied on Wi-Fi or Bluetooth technologies, alerting you ONLY if you were located within a short distance from your mailbox. postybell eliminates the distance barrier, sending you a real-time cellular alert, no matter where you are (even when you’re abroad!).

 

HOW IT WORKS

postybell features two smart modules:

1. A proximity sensor

2. A GSM module

Now, this is how it all happens:

Postybell works with all phones including house, cell, and Smartphones. It simply rings the number you configure it to.

However to make things even more convenient, we have developed an app that “catches & records” and manages these alerts. The app currently supports only Android devices, but developing a version for IOS is at the top of our “as-soon- as-we-reach-our-goal” to do list.


The user-friendly app allows you to easily control and monitor postybell.

Here are some of its major incredibilities:

1.  Incredible # 1 – one postybell fits all

     Only 85mmX42.2mmX15mm, Postybell’s slim figure fits all mailboxes.

2.  Incredible #2 – total cellular control

     Connecting your cell phone to your postybell (PIR based connection), you can
     easily review all logs and perform actions from your device.

3.  Incredible # 3 – multi mailbox monitoring

    The app allows for cellular monitoring of several mailboxes. Simply add on
    your various profiles (home box, office box, and more), and   
    you can immediately control all mailboxes from your device.

4.  Incredible # 4 – real-time incoming mail alerts

     As soon as the postman visits your mailbox, postybell will alert you, by phone or
     by mail.

5.  Incredible # 5 – low battery alert

     When your postybell battery begins to run low, it will notify you via text message.

6.  Incredible # 6 – alert forward

    You can configure the app to forward alerts to a different mobile number  or  email
    So  if you’re on vacation, you can ask your friend or neighbor to watch  your post
    box for you.

We’ve got big plans for postybell.

Here are just a few:

1.  Developing a postybell version for iOS. (See? We didn’t forget about you
     iPhone fans!).

2.  Creating “postybell pro” – a postybell with built-in camera that sends you real-time
     pics of your new post mail.

3.  Expanding postybell’s range of capabilities by adding different sensors, including
     heat, humidity, and gas sensors.


How big is postybell?

postybell is 85mm long, 42mm wide and 12mm deep. It weights 50 grams (0.88oz).

What’s included in the postybell price?

The postybell package includes the following:

  1 postybell device

  1 micro USB charging cable

  USB charger

  Free app downloading link

Are there any additional expenses, such as a monthly fee?

No. All you need in order to use postybell is a local SIM. As the app “catches & records” the alerts and rejects the call (so that you don’t incur any charges), it will notify you via a call. (The future IOS version will not perform in the same exact way, so you can simply skip the call, to avoid being charged).

What type of battery does postybell use? How long does it last?

postybell comes with a built-in, re-chargeable 400 mA/H lithium polymer battery. It can last up to 2-3 months without charging. We are currently working on further optimizing it.

Can postybell send alerts to more than one cellular phone?

Yes.  You can connect up to 5 devices to one postybell.

Can I monitor more than one mailbox using postybell?

Yes. The postybell app supports multiple postybell profiles.

How do I charge postybell’s battery?

Postybell comes with a USB charger and a USB charging cable, for easy charging. In addition, we offer 2 more charging options:

  A solar battery that easily attaches to your mailbox, transforming sun energy into
   electricity.

  A portable battery you can charge at home and attach to your postybell when
   the battery runs low.

Must I have a smartphone in order to use postybell?

No. Although the app only supports smartphones, postybell can call any phone in order to alert you of new mail, including mobiles and house phones.

Do i need to be “tech savvy” in order to install the postybell device in my post box?

Not at all. On the back of the postybell device, you’ll find a small magnet. To get postybell started, just stick the magnet onto the body of the post box. It’s as simple as it sounds.
