German IP video door station expert Bird Home Automation Group, starts pre-selling its IP converter DoorBird D301. The Berlin-based company’s award-winning products enable the user to communicate with anyone standing at their front door via smartphone or tablet – regardless of whether they are at home or not. The new DoorBird D301 converts conventional door intercom systems into IP door intercoms. Thus, residents can benefit from the advantages of an intelligent door intercom system without having to replace the existing analog device.
When ringing at the house entrance door, the user receives a push notification on his smartphone or tablet and can immediately speak to the visitor. Depending on the model, users can also see the visitor, provided that the existing door intercom system is equipped with a camera.
Visitors cannot acoustically distinguish if the resident is at home or not. Users can also open the house entrance door or the gate simply via app which is especially helpful if family members locked themselves out or if there is a delivery.
“With the DoorBird D301, tenants and owners who are not allowed to or do not want to change their analog door intercoms get a smart solution for the house entrance door,” says Sascha Keller, CEO of the Bird Home Automation Group. “The user can immediately communicate with visitors via smartphone and control the house entrance door remotely. Thus, we found a hands-on way to meet the high demand for making your front door smart.”
The discreet white box DoorBird D301 is simply connected via a cable to the existing indoor station which continues to function in the usual way. The connection is then established to the Internet router via Wi-Fi or network cable and PoE. The configuration is done using the free DoorBird app which is available for iOS and Android. Most of the door intercom systems manufactured by Siedle, Ritto, TCS and René Koch are supported with audio.
