Peeple says its main objective is to bring a sense of security – or what Chris Chuter, CEO and co-founder of Peeple, calls "securiosity" to the masses.
Chuter found his inspiration when his son left his Austin-based house to visit his grandmother in Houston, Chuter wanted to ensure he knew when his door opened and closed.
"When caller ID for phones came along (before voicemail even), people were skeptical that it would be useful, but think about it now. Would you buy a phone that didn't have caller ID. No, of course not. If we execute this correctly, it will be like that" Chuter told CNBC via email.
The device itself only needs charging around once every six months. A price for Peeple has not yet been set, however Chuter expected it to be "less than competitive doorbell offerings on the market" Chuter said.

CES: Popularity for Peeple
Peeple gained a welcome boost at TechCrunch's Hardware Battlefield 2015 competition at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas last week. Competing against 14 other hardware startups for a $50,000 prize, Peeple came in second behind Voltera V-One, a circuit-board printing device.
Talking about CES, Chris says "the flashy, huge booths are crowd pleasers, but I feel like it's the people in the tiny tables in the back who are really taking the risks and pushing the boundaries of what technological can and should do."
Chuter aims on launching a crowd-funding campaign around March saying "When I see people's eyes light up when they get the concept, it really energizes me. It's a genuine 'AHA!' moment and I love it."
Chuter concluded with "We'd like to ship by the end of the year, but that depends a lot on a successful crowd funding campaign, further development, field testing, and figuring out all the details to manufacturing in China."
