ok so last night i had a cold caller at the door trying to flog me overpriced celebrity chef recipe boxes; she asked if i did the household cooking i said 'not really' then she said she'd come back to talk to the person who does. i said no thanks we're not interested and she said
'how would you know, you don't do the cooking'
really judgmental and rude. i managed to keep quiet and shortly after she scampered off.
so that's the inspiration here:
the best doorbell is a silent doorbell.
i recorded my doorbell speaker being quiet. and done some processing in audition. what's actually captured is traffic and fireworks.
i think it'd be fun to have a doorbell that captures indoors sounds and is very difficult to work out that it's a doorbell.
