“Got a notification from my smart home app in the middle of the night saying ‘Your doorbell detected a visitor.’ Yes, this was real. Basically, I kept getting notifications on my app that my doorbell detected a visitor, yet when i checked the first few times nothing appeared, and figured it was maybe a stray dog or someone on the sidewalk being detected by the sensor. Several notifications later I checked again and this is what appeared. Yes I am alive” –FatNDepressed
Continued from above, these are the notifications from the Reddit-poster’s phone. The notifications come several times over a period of days.
