Door Spy Hole

A door spy hole, also known as Spy Holes for Doors, is a small lens or aperture installed in a door that allows the person inside to see who is outside without opening the door. Its primary use is for security purposes, allowing homeowners or apartment dwellers to safely see who is at the door before opening it. A peephole is designed so that a person looking through it from the inside can see outside but not the other way around, meaning that the person outside cannot see inside. The height of a spy hole in a door is typically at eye level for the average person, usually around 58 inches from the ground. Peepholes can be installed in a variety of door types, including uPVC doors. At MB DIY, we offer the most stylish and robust Door Spy Hole in the market.
