The DoorBird App provides mobile access to DoorBird IP Video Door Stations. Using the app, you can see and hear your visitors in real time, speak with them or unlock the door. When visitors press your doorbell, you receive a push notification on your iPhone or iPad and can immediately answer your door – from anywhere in the world. The DoorBird can also send instant alerts when a visitor triggers the built-in motion sensor. No matter if you are at home or not, you will never miss a visitor or a delivery.

DoorBird's innovative IP technology was developed in Germany and is continuously improved through regular app and hardware updates. The system works in your local network (LAN) as well as outside of your home network environment without range limitation and securely encrypted over the Internet.

Apple Watch Complication?

Happy with our new Doorbird system, and it’s nice that there’s some basic Apple Watch integration, but I wish the app would work as a “Complication” (Apple’s way of enabling access on the watch face) for easier access. The two use cases I have in mind: 1) Letting yourself in quickly as you approach the door, and more importantly, 2) letting in a friend or delivery person who’s at the door but called you on the phone rather than buzzing you via the intercom. You can do this now by finding the app in the app directory, but it would be ideal to have a Complication directly available on the watch face.

Hello, we will forward your wishes to our development team, but currently there are no plans to expand Apple Watch features.

Great products and good app to match

I’ve had a DoorBird at my house for almost two years and I’m very pleased with it. I haven’t had any trouble with it. The app’s interface is simple and straightforward. It has everything you need and nothing more. You open the app and see the door right away, then one tap to answer. Snapshots and history are just as easy to access. The settings menus are a bit complicated, but as a technical person I prefer having more options than less. Once it’s all set up, you never need to mess with the settings anyway.

I had a Ring doorbell before this and it was okay, but not great (both device and app). At my new house, the contractor installed a Control4 doorphone and I had him replace it with another DoorBird because the C4 intercom app was not nearly as good.

A major notifications bug and poor UX

There are a number of issues with the app:
- There is a bug in its push notifications on iOS. The doorbell and motion alarms become permanently silent after switching the phone to Silent Mode and then back to Ringer mode from the side toggle. The only way to have the push notifications have sound again is to go into the DoorBird app settings and toggle the Activate button for each notification. This needs to be done each time after the phone is switched back to Ringer. I have now missed so many doorbells as a result that the whole point of having the DoorBird in order to open our gate on demand, has substantially diminished in utility for us.

- The camera view doesn’t load when the app is opened by tapping on a push notification - which is the typical user experience when trying to respond to the doorbell. You actually need to tap on the camera view button in the app (bottom left corner) to get the camera view to refresh and display.

- The app UI and UX look like they haven’t been updated for about 10 years - the app is in a desperate need for a refresh to a more modern interface.
