Bird Home Automation Adds IP Intercoms to DoorBird Line


Bird Home Automation has added IP intercoms with up to 18 call buttons to its DoorBird product line. The new smart video door intercoms significantly expand the company’s product portfolio, which includes models with displays, keypads for multi-tenant buildings and customized solutions with multiple bell buttons and mailboxes.

The new IP intercom systems claim to be easy to integrate and wire in new and existing buildings. Apart from the network infrastructure, no additional hardware is required. This distinguishes DoorBird from other manufacturers and products that often depend on costly additional devices such as gateways to ensure that they can operate IP-based. Architects, technical building planners and integrators can use the DoorBird IP technology to benefit from the smooth integration and cabling.

All DoorBird door intercoms come with an integrated video camera with a 180-degree hemispherical lens, a noise-canceling speaker (AEC, ANR), an RFID reader for keyless access control and backlit call buttons. For additional comfort, the intercom system can work with DoorBird IP indoor stations. The compact housing, discreet/low-profile design, intuitive user interface and hardware keys for main functions allow the IP indoor station to blend into any residential and commercial MDU. Beyond that, the IP intercoms can be integrated into home and building automation systems using DoorBird’s open API. This means the intercom’s features can be accessed and controlled through other manufacturer’s systems and touch panels.

Tenants can also get mobile access to the door intercom, and connect up to eight smart devices to one call button. When a visitor rings the doorbell, the resident receives an instant alert and can access the intercom system via the free DoorBird app on their smartphone or tablet. When tenants use the remote communication and access control, the door can be answered not only from home but also while being away, at work or on vacation. The live video feed shows the visitor who rang the doorbell, and the resident can talk to them and open the front door using their smart device.
