The main advantage and the actual reason of construction is the fact that residents can have access without the use of keys!
The mailbox operates using a remote control. The door opens when the first button is pressed. Pressing the second button a light is turn on which gives the ability to collect post even in night time. Moreover even if the residents do not have the remote control , they can easily have access using a secret password (on the panel).
Step 1: Remote Controls - Batteries
There are four remote controls so every member of the family can have access and the remote controls can be hanged on the keyring.
The most impressive characteristics of this mailbox are: the fact that instead of disposable batteries, a small 12v solar panel was installed, which continuously recharges the battery and also the fact that when an envelope is put in the mailbox, an sms will automatically be sent to your mobile phone informing you that you got a new letter from post!!
Step 2: Mailbox
That's our new mail box made in November 2015 and it is a bit different from the usual ones!! Not only the appearance but also the function of this mailbox differ from the usual ones and those differences really make it extreme! This one is made of 2mm metal sheet and marri wood.
Step 3: Video
Furthermore, it is weatherproof and equipped with extra space for leaflets and other advertising material. Its dimensions are 75 x 25 x 25cm!
