[APP][Pro&Cloud] DoorBird

v2.2.5 - 2018-11-06

FIX: fix issue with pairing wizard preventing new DoorBirds to be added to Homey

Works again. Thank you. Also ask to open works from Homey perfectly. Cheers.
Although now when the relay is triggered (either relay or 2), this also is triggering a flow that is supposed to work only when the doorbird rings. Now every time I unlock the relay, Homey is asking me if I want to open the lock (again).

I’m pretty sure you have misconfigured the notifications in the Doorbird app. Please check this and follow the instructions in the app store description if needed.

It works like a charm now.
Set-it up with a simple flow in about 5 minutes.

Thanks a lot! (Now looking for the perfect chime :wink: )

Hi, i have set the notifications again and even re-added the Doorbird. Same result.
Any trigger of the relays, whether via Homey, or Doorbird app or RFID reader, will trigger the my flow that is supposed to start only when Bell is pressed.
Any ideas?

Could you post screenshots from your DoorBird smartphone app from the HTTP calls admin screen (administration > http calls) and the relays schedule screen (administration > relays > schedule).

Just wanted to say thank you for the app. I’ve configured a flow to cast a video of the front door DoorBird to my TV’s on doorbell trigger. It really simplifies checking who is there as TV is usually on all the times on multiple locations around the house.

Thumbs up for the app.

All good, turns out i needed to delete the old http calls. Silly me. Thanks.

can you show me that flow? what did you use, the url of the doorbird api for live stream?

Yes, exactly. Only thing to recommend is that you send url (action 1) and then after a 45-60 sec delay you stop the stream (action 2). Otherwise it continues to stream a video from doorbir indefinitely or untill you manually kill it over mobile phone.

Yes, noticed that myself. Takes about 15 seconds to load, then you need to make sure you stop the stream.
Also, I just added the snapshot to appear on the Neeo remote with the app by Neil’s. Awesome, super fun.

First time I heard about Neeo remote. Looks like brutally fun device but the price of it is also brutal.

P.s. I must say that in my system stream from Doorbird loads within 6-7 secs. I’m using Chromecast 3 if this is reason.

What url do you use for the chromecast and doorbird ?


Thanks, works perfect !

Neeo Remote and Brain aren’t that expensive. You have to remember that it is basicaly a Hub like Homey, WITH a Remote (not as good as Homey though). I like it as it is still a considerably cheaper solution than adding a Control4, URC or RTI system with Remote to a Hub to get similar functionality. And the Logitech Harmony remotes dont allow this level of integration. Nor have the same quality feel to them.
It is really a great addition to the Homey, has a high build quality, works well, has numerous functionality with Homey thanks to Neils app, and is priced somewhere between a Harmony remote and Control4/URC/RTI remote. You also need to remember that I am looking at this as an integrator not just a DIY enthusiast.
Maybe the Chromecast 3 is faster, i’m using a Nvidia Sheild Player. My Network is fast, but internet is slow, so this could also be affecting the delay.

good evening . tonight I found out that the doorbell trigger no longer starts the flow. I get a screenshot when testing the flow. I have checked the http calls and they seem to be correct, at least the ip address is correct with that of homey.

any idea what it can be or how I can see if a trigger is sent?

thank you in advance

Try restarting your DoorBird from the admin area on the DoorBird app and then follow all installation steps again

I have made several attempts. even everything removed from homey and doorbird, then ptp for 10 seconds. then everything is reinstalled according to the instructions.

unfortunately it does not work yet.

I thought I would try to install the app again but unfortunately that does not work. I get the message that the app is not compatible with my software version. homey is on rc.3

Yes, I’m not on Homey v2 yet and I still need to make it compatible with v2 to be able to install it.

About the initial problem, 2.0.0-rc.x has a bug where the flowcard triggers are not working properly / for all apps. Which sounds like your issue.
