That is exactly what Mr. Postman gives you, just like a dog barking by the window to let you know that his nemeses, the Mailman, has arrived.Â Mr. Postman is a smart mailbox that gives you the ability to manage your mail while away from the house or even on a rainy day.Â Mr. Postman alerts you when mail is delivered and picked up and allows you to lock or unlock the door remotely for security purposes.
It learns the postmanâs schedule so whether you have outgoing mail or delivered mail you havenât picked up yet, the box remains locked until the postmanâs arrival or your trip to the mailbox after work.Â The status of the mailbox and mail can be monitored from the app on a smartphone. Additionally, if youâre not home and want a friend or neighbor to grab your mail, Mr. Postman gives you the ability to send a one-time use virtual key for easy unlocking.Â So whether itâs raining outside and you just want to know if the mail has arrived, Mr. Postman can bark-ify you.
This invention came thanks to my better half and the best dog ever, Firu. Â Everyday aroundÂ 4 p.m.Â Firu would bark, and at first, we didn’t know why. Â Soon after though, we realized that he was barking at the mailman. Â With that, my wifeâs excitement to get new mail started. Â But we donât always get new mail, and since not everyone has an amazing dog like Mr. Firu, we thought, why not create a mailbox that like him, would let you know when you have mail? Â And why not add more security than a regular olâ mailbox?
