This Nifty Mailbox Sensor Brings Snail Mail Into the Digital Age

Postybell is a mailbox sensor that sends an alert to your phone whenever you receive a physical letter.

Wasting time shuffling over to your mailbox expectantly only to find out that it’s empty is now a thing of the past. Simply place the Postybell in your mailbox and let it keep track of incoming mail.

Postybell includes a sensor that detects movement in the mailbox and a GSM module that sends an alert to your smartphone. The GSM technology means you don’t have to be within a particular distance from your mailbox, like with similar products that rely on WiFi or Bluetooth.

In the digital age, we’re well-accustomed to getting alerts on our phones every time we get an email, so Postybell’s Israeli creators thought it was time to bring the same convenience to snail mail.

At present, the app is only configured for use with Android smartphones, but an iOS version is also on the horizon. Stats for Modern Mailbox-Alerting Memos Trending: This Year & Mild
