Front door control made smarter after PEAKnx partners with DoorBird
PEAKnx and Bird Home Automation (more commonly known as DoorBird) have partnered to bring even smarter controls to front door systems, just a week after DoorBird announced that it now works with ThinKnx systems.
The DoorBird door station can be connected easily and quickly to the PEAKnx touch panels Controlmini and Controlpro giving the user the ability to see and speak with the visitor through the PEAKnx touch panel.
PEAKnx is a home and building automation solutions manufacturer that is looking at creating the most innovative smart home technology. Gerald Palmsteiner, vice president operations COO at PEAKnx, said: “I heard about DoorBird a few years ago. It attracted my attention at the time because as far as I knew, it was the first manufacturer of IP door stations that made door opening via smartphone possible. That was impressive. The company is very successful and we are happy to start this cooperation.”
Sascha Keller, CEO of Bird Home Automation, was the one to initiate the partnership. He commented: “It quickly became clear to me that there was a great potential to combine out know-how. The cooperation has developed very positively and quickly from the very beginning. Thanks to our open API, we were able to integrate DoorBird into the PEAKnx system within a very short time which allows us to now offer our customers even greater flexibility when it comes to their smart home.”
To ensure an excellent connection between DoorBird and PEAKnx panels, the door station camera can be integrated into the PEAKnx visualisation software YOUVI via a RTSP stream, a network protocol that controls the transmission of audio-visual data. The touch panel and the IP door intercom communicate via a SIP gateway.
