DoorBird for Homey
App Store Page: DoorBird App for Homey | Homey
Use Homey together with a DoorBird IP Video Door Station. Let the DoorBird notify Homey when the doorbell is rang or when motion is detected, use Homey to control the DoorBird relay, trigger the IR light or send a snapshot through email.
Adding the DoorBird as device
After installation of the Homey app you need to add your DoorBird(s) as device in Homey. This requires you to enter the credentials of a valid user account. For pairing with Homey Cloud this needs to be the admin user. For pairing with Homey Pro you need a user with the correct permissions. This user can be created through the DoorBird smartphone app. Best is to use a separate account for this and make sure this user is granted API-operator permissions as this is needed for communication with Homey Pro.
Notifications from DoorBird to Homey
For the doorbell alarm, motion alarm, doorbell rang, motion detected and door open trigger flow cards to work in Homey the DoorBird needs to be configured to send HTTP notifications for these events to Homey. During pairing you will be given the option to configure a notification schedule. If you are using the HTTP notifications from the DoorBird for other purposes you can opt-out, otherwise leave this option enabled to ensure your DoorBird is able to communicate with Homey. You can always remove are re-add the notification schedule at a later time as well through the maintenance actions of your DoorBird.
Setting up email
To be able to send snapshots through email you will need to configure an email account which sends out the email. In the general settings of the DoorBird app there is a section to configure your email account. Please pay attention to the extra information when adding a Gmail account, this requires you to use a specific app password which needs to be setup within your Google account.
- When paired with Homey Cloud it can happen that the images are not available. The workaround is to reinstall the app from the app store to force an app reboot. This should eventually result in the images being displayed.
With this app you can use your DoorBird as a motion sensor for Heimdall
I am new, so not sure if this is the right place to post.
In a former discussion I saw someone with the same problem:
I double checked the IP, user en password but it still does not work.
I use static IP adresse and the Doorbird is connected by ethernetcable.
You posted earlier:
I tried to click on the link but I received a 404 error.
I am still very eager to use your app. Is there a way to debug my problem?
Thnks in advance
Problem solved by logging into the doorbird with the same account.
my first post. New user here.
I have added the doorbird intercom, a very useful app. Thank you.
I guess you dont have a new d2101 to test with? These new doorbird units now have 2 relays to control, any chance of adding functionality to control the second relay also please?
Also noticed that having Homey ask you if you want to open the door, doesn;t actually trigger the relay.
I can trigger this with a virtual device(lock) and a flow card, but not via a flow as attached. Any ideas?
I see the API has been updated to support multiple relays. I just need to figure out how to properly support this without being able to test it (I dont have a d2101 laying around )
Hmm, I’ll look into this as well.
And thank you for your donation, it’s very much appreciated …
no problem, new api is quite detailed, so shouldnt be an issue to update. Could you add support for the IO controller also, should be same configuration as multiple relays.
If you need access to one to test with, I can add you as a user with api access to our one in the showroom, it has a IO controller also.
If you can add the additional relay, i’ll even pop in another little donation
Sorry, Another thing if it could be modified is the device widget. Within the app the device widget of the Doorbird shows the motion sensor and “generic alarm”(not sure what this is). Can this be changed to allow direct use of the relays 1&2 instead. I have had to create a virtual device and Flow to trigger the Door relays. it would look much cleaner if it were part of the Doorbird Device Widget.
you can pm me on slack at #LiteAutomation
I published a new release yesterday which allows you to select any of the registered relays for the DoorBird. Please have a look if this works for the io controllers as well.
This would require a pretty big change to the app and would require everyone to re-pair and recreate their flows. I need to think about that. I’ll probably wait until Homey 2.x and the new mobile app are available.
I understand. It just seems more suitable to have direct action with the relays rather than to see if the motion sensor has been activated. Meanwhile ill just set up virtual devices.
Should I remove and re-add the doorbird or just reapply the http URL notifications?
Re-adding will only be necessary once I as the relays as capability (which is required for them to show in the device card). There is also no need to re-apply the htpp notifications. You will need to update your flow however if you use the open door action card. But the update still needs to be approved by Athom. I will post the changelog here once published.
Hi, new to Doorbird and Homey here.
Installing Doorbird with a bit of help was not the hardest thing. The Doorbird connects to my phone and to the tablet when the button is pressed. All good.
The trickier part would be connecting to Homey: I add the IP Address, username and password but the ‘connect’ /'Verbind’button never gets visible. When I hit “Test Connection” nothing happens. This is the same behaviour I get when I try to set the DoorBird Notification HTTP URLS.
Any idea where I am already blocking?
Hmm, it seems a bug has made it into the pairing wizard and is preventing new DoorBirds to be added. I’ll look into it and release a fix. If no DoorBirds have been added to Homey you can not setup the notifications URLs either.
I’ll see if I can submit a fix this evening, then it’s up to Athom to approve the update.
Hi, I have also the problem that I can’t connect the doorbird with homey. Doorbird is working fine with the DoorBird app. Sometimes I have the message Unknown error, are you sure you have entered the correct IP address and Homey is on the same network as the DoorBird? Please check your settings and try again. But most time nothing happens.
I have double checked the settings. I have this problem with the doorbird connected by WiFi and LAN. And connecting via the homey app and online. The doorbird runs on firmware version 000112. Connecting doorbird with http://xxx/bha-api/view.html works fine.
There is a fix for this pending in the app store and waiting for Athom to approve it. If you can’t wait you could install it from github using the command line install.
Great! Looking forward to test it!
