It’s an interesting story.
On the one hand, there’s the promise of increased security, with the promise that they’ll be available when a doorbell goes off or when someone tries to lock themselves in.
On a side note, they may also be the first of a series of features to help alleviate some of the pressure on the city’s doorbell system.
But on the other hand, this may just be a new feature to be rolled out to Vancouver residents.
On Monday, a city spokesperson said the city had no immediate plans to roll out the new feature.
“This is something that we’ll work through as we look at this,” said a spokesperson for the city of Vancouver.
The spokesperson also pointed out that the city has a “significant” backlog of over 100,000 emergency calls to the city centre, which has a heavy burden on the doorbell systems.
So it’s unclear whether this feature will be rolled-out to all residents or only to some residents.
In the meantime, there are many Vancouver residents who will be left wondering if their doorbell is working as it should.
Vancouver resident, Kevin Janson, who’s been living in Vancouver for nearly a decade, said he had heard rumors that his doorbell wasn’t working and he decided to look into it.
“There are a lot of people in the community that are experiencing this sort of thing, people who are not paying attention to the service, or they don’t have an easy way to check their door, which is why I took a look at the door-bell and found out that it wasn’t functioning,” he said.
Kevin Janson’s alarm went off once he left the house in Vancouver, BC, and when he returned, his door was gone.
“I thought maybe my alarm was going off and then I heard the door lock.
I was really surprised,” he told CBC News.
The city of Victoria is also considering rolling out automatic door locks to all of its homes, with plans to do so by the end of the year.
But some Vancouver residents are unhappy that the system hasn’t been rolled out yet.
“I think it’s going to be a bit of a problem, because there are so many people that don’t know how to use their door,” Janson said.
“You know, if it’s broken, I don’t think it will work very well.”
