Doorbell with inbuilt visitor statistics display

Website stats are an obsession for some people. How many visitors? What age are they? How long do they spend on the site? The list goes on. Here is my idea to take this statistical obsession one step further. A doorbell with built in home visitor statistics display. (C) Dominic Wilcox

  1. Love it. This explains the fallacies of Website stats better than any explanation I have used in the past 10 years. Thank you!

  2. This is probably going to be commonplace in the future, with our computer-outfitted houses and cyborg implants which identify us and communicate with all surrounding electronics. (see “Kevin Warwick”)

    well, what of privacy?

  3. I’m sure the guards at gated communities already have this technology. I wonder what one could do with that information in a public sphere though. Tailor their apartment to get the most “hits” possible?

  4. This kinda doorbell would work once we all have RDIF implants like animals, but in security these stats are available where everyone entering a building has to use a swipe card.

  5. I would want to add referrer details (“who told you where I live?”) and bounce rate (“hi, can I come in?” “no”) and also set up a conversion funnel to measure drop-off between front door and bedroom.

    Er, the last bit is a slightly creepy idea, but there’s no other room in the house that it makes sense for; who would measure door-to-kitchen conversion? So, for the sake of the joke, I am willing to look slightly creepy.

  6. […] This is the Internet geek doorbell. I am wondering how to you get all your visitors to tell their weight to a doorbell? Does this doorbell come with a special doormat that also guesses age? More on variations on normal. […]

  7. great ideas. I always follow your ideas and apply them.

    Just one question though. Have you made writing this blog as your profession or do you do this in your spare time?

    Just curious..
