peephole n : a hole (in a door or an oven etc) through which you can peep [syn: spyhole]
- A small hole, opening, or glass, especially in a door, through which to look.
A peephole is a small opening (or glass window) cut in a door, typically to allow people inside to see outside without opening the door. Glass peepholes are often fitted with a fisheye lens to allow a wider field of view from the inside and little to no visibility from the outside.
