They say that the best ideas are the simplest ones, and in the case of UAP’s Wide Angle Door Viewer, this proves this point perfectly!

This is the box it comes in:

And these are the very simple installation instructions it comes with:

And this is the impressively clear picture the 38mm wide screen gives (plus my hand!):

This simple device is absolutely ideal for children, wheelchair users and the elderly, and those who may struggle with their vision. Standard spy holes, as useful as they are to the security conscious, only provide a small viewing area. But this extra wide viewing screen provides a much wider and clearer image, which is surprisingly clear! The image is effective up to 2 metres away too.

It all works using a set of prisms. The image above is what you see on the inside, the prisms face outwards and then project the image as you see above. This way, you get one way viewing. No one from the outside can look in:

Again, excuse the hand! As I said at the top of the post, the best ideas are the simplest ones. This super wide angle door viewer is easy to install, gives a clear and wide picture, it’s great for kids and the elderly who may struggle with their sight – where a normal spy hole won’t do and it even impressed our office staff, who are notoriously hard to impress!

The key to a lot of new products on the installations side of things is how easy it is for fitters to install the product. Luckily, there are just two main components and three installation steps so you’re fitters aren’t going to be complaining about a complicated and fiddly installation process!

For burglars who think they’re being crafty, the viewer catches them out:
