Control4, a provider of customized automation and control solutions, has officially certified the DoorBird driver. DoorBird IP door stations can now be integrated directly into Control4 systems. The smart video intercoms are developed and produced by Bird Home Automation Group in Berlin, Germany.
Customers can now access their IP intercom directly from Control4 interfaces without the additional cost of a third-party driver. The new certified driver recognizes the doorbell, video camera and motion sensor of the DoorBird door station immediately after installation. The devices communicate over a shared-network via hardwired PoE (Power over Ethernet) or Wi-Fi.
This integration features audio and video calls from the door station to touch panels or the Control4 OS 3 app, as well as a live view of the entrance area via the DoorBird camera. When a visitor rings the call button, a ringtone can play through the home’s audio system. The resident can then open their electronic door lock or garage door via the DoorBird icon, or anytime from the DoorBird app.
This driver is free-of-charge and available in the Control4 Composer online database. The third-party driver from Cinegration, which had previously enabled the integration of DoorBird into Control4, continues to function.
