Initial Setup/Installation of Driver

 

DoorBird App Setup

  • Setup DoorBird for SIP on DoorBird App. Note: THIS MUST BE DONE EVEN IF YOU ARE NOT USING CONTROL4 TOUCHSCREENS
  • Log into Doorbird App and select Administration section
  • Use Administrator Username/Password to login (example: ggyywx0000)
  • Press Add. This will add user 0002 (example: ggyywx0002)
  • Change Comment to SIP (remember to hit return after typing. Simply typing SIP then save WILL NOT save)
  • Press Save

 

      

Setup Control4 Driver:

  • Load Driver into Project
  • Enter IP address of DoorBird or use hostname
    • Hostname setup
      • Under Connections, Network, double-click on the DoorBird driver
      • Enter bha-WIFIMAC Address of the doorbird (example: bha-1CCAE3701234)
    • Enter Username and password of the DoorBird using the same username that was used to setup SIP on DoorBird app (typically user 0002. Example: ggyywx0002)
    • If Communication Agent is not in project, add this now (note: this is only required if touchscreens are installed)
    • Use dropdown (Driver Actions) and Choose (01) Driver Setup.
      • This will setup all notifications, setup SIP, Choose a valid communication port and setup custom buttons on the control4 touchscreens automatically
    • Under Programming, choose ‘when Doorbell button is pressed’
      • Add required programming actions when doorbell is pressed (example: play ding-dong sound in living room)
    • Wait 1-2 minutes for DoorBird to process all commands
    • Test

 

Note: If Error 75% failed is reached on Driver Setup…

                This error comes when the driver attempts to trigger a dooropen command on the DoorBird and does not receive a response back from the DoorBird in a specified time.  If this happens, make sure you are on the latest firmware of DoorBird, wait a few minutes, reboot your DoorBird and retest.

CUSTOMIZE YOUR INSTALLATION:

            Cinegration has provided many tools and options to the driver.  Below are some of the main features used:

 

Changing Intercom Buttons (Default: Door and Activate Light)

            These adjust what the ‘buttons’ do on a Control4 touchscreen when a call to the Doorstation is made.

Intercom Button 1 Setup:

Standard Action (Trigger DoorStike): Sends a command to the DoorBird unit to trigger the door relay on the unit.  The dealer would then wire a low-voltage doorstrike to the DoorBird.  For wiring examples: http://www.doorbird.com/support

Custom Action (Event): Allows dealer to use Control4 programming to trigger the door.  This could be a Yale Doorlock or garage door for example.

Intercom Button 2 Setup:

Standard Action (Enable IR on Camera) sends the light on command to the DoorBird. This will activate the night-vision leds on the DoorBird for 3 minutes. This time is fixed and set from the DoorBird API

Custom Action (Event) allows dealer to use Control4 programming instead.  Example would be to turn on the front door lights instead of using the night-vision led’s on the camera.  Another example would be to use this custom button to open another door or home automation operation.

 

Choose which touch panels receive the notification call

            Allows a dealer to choose which touchscreen gets the doorbell call

Standard Action: By default, all touchscreens will receive the doorbell call.

Custom Action: Create a custom call group under the communication agent, go to the Call Group property on the driver, click Retrieve Intercom Groups and then choose which choose the group you created.

Trigger Doorlock from DoorBird app

            Allows a customer to use the DoorBird app to trigger their smart Control4 enabled Doorlock without ever launching the Control4 app.  This will work with or without 4Sight

Standard Action: This action does nothing.

Custom Action: Go to Programming, Events, DoorOpen and create the programming required to trigger door.  Care should be used as this command does not require a password to execute so DON’T disarm an alarm system!

Customize the Doorbell sound in the home

            Allows a dealer to setup a custom doorbell sound in home.

Standard (Default) Action: Nothing.  Dealer MUST program what ‘happens’ when the doorbell button is pressed

Custom Action: Go to programming, Events, Doorbell_Button and create the programming required to play the sound in the rooms.  Standard setup would be to use the Announcement agent.  For procedure to properly setup an announcement please see Control4 Tech 1 class material or contact Control4

Change SNAPSHOT image from ‘last doorbell button push image’ to live snapshot image

            Under Properties, Driver Actions Choose

                                Enable History SNAPSHOT Mode (default) for last doorbell button push SNAPSHOT mode

                                Enable CameraImage SNAPSHOT Mode for live image
