A Doorbell for the Deaf

Individuals with hearing impairments rely on their sight for a variety of circumstances in which those who can hear simply use their ears. Designed with this in mind, the Light Bell was conceived to inform deaf users when there’s a visitor at the door.

Instead of a regular chime, the doorbell triggers a light signal using a specialized Bluetooth bulb. When the button is pressed, the light is wirelessly triggered to indicate the presence of someone at the door. Easily installed to any fixture or lamp, it provides an intuitive and simple solution to an everyday occurrence.

“Light Bell repeats turning on and off the light five times when someone rings a doorbell,” explains designer Ian Bok.
