Advanced IP Communication with DoorBird IP Video Door Intercoms and Snom IP Phones
DoorBird’s IP-based video door intercoms can now be integrated seamlessly with Snom phones. When the doorbell rings, the audio and video signal from the door intercom is transmitted to the Snom IP phone providing two-way audio communication as well as video via the phone video display. With the DoorBird and Snom integration, the video image is immediately visible when the doorbell rings, even before the call is answered.
Bird Home Automation, the Berlin-based manufacturer of the DoorBird product line, developed a special Common Gateway Interface (CGI) to enable Snom IP phones to retrieve image data from the DoorBird camera. All other data is transmitted via standard SIP protocol. The user can communicate with the visitor via the hands-free function or by picking up the handset. The IP door intercom can also be controlled via the Snom phone to open the entrance door whenever required.
