DoorBird - App User Manual

As the app user manual is constantly being adapted to the further development of the app, it is not available in printed form. You can find the always current version of the operating instructions at www.doorbird.com/support.

Additional information such as quickstart instructions, installation instructions for the device, videos and much more can also be found at www.doorbird.com/support.

For simplicity reasons, we use the term “device” to refer to our “DoorBird Video Door Station” and “BirdGuard” products, and use the term “mobile device” to refer to a smartphone or tablet.

Download

Download and open the "DoorBird" app from Bird Home Automation from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store.


Screens

We have worked towards making the App interface as simple and intuitive as possible. Thus, we’ve done away with many configurable settings and buttons and have only made the most important functions configurable, as is the case with most common door entry phones. All of our products are pre-configured to use the optimal settings for video, network transport protocols, compression, encryption, ports and much more. There’s also no need to enter IP addresses or setup port forwarding etc., which not only makes our products simple to set up but also reliable to use.
The screenshots are based on how our App is displayed on an iPhone running Apple’s iOS. There may be minor differences as to how this appears on iPad and Android smartphones or tablets. Nevertheless, the descriptions and functions are identical across those platforms.

This manual was written with the iOS App in version V4.91.


Live Screen

This is the first screen that appears after opening the app. It is used to communicate with your visitor, open doors and/or switch relays and smartlocks.

Connection strength

The bars (on the right) show the quality of the connection over the entire network route from the app to the device, i.e. over all access points, routers, lines, etc. The connection quality simultaneously represents the data throughput and the latency of the transmitted data.

Connection method

The symbol (house/cloud) indicates the type of connection between the app and video door station.
The house icon stands for a direct connection of the app to the device via LAN.
The cloud symbol stands for a connection of the app to the device via our highly secure cloud server over the Internet.

Live picture

The resolution, compression and number of frames per second depend on the strength of the connection as well as on the connection method.

Door opening button

Press the left button to open the door. The prerequisite is that you have connected a door opener to the device.

Light button

Press the middle button to switch on the infrared LED ring on the device. As soon as the infrared LED ring is active, the device switches to night vision mode and only infrared light is detected by the image sensor. The image is then displayed without colors. The light switches itself off again after a short time.

Answering/hanging-up button

Press the right button to start or end a audio connection.

Device list

All compatible devices associated with the app are displayed here. If an event has recently occurred, for example someone has rung the device, you will also see this to the right of the device label.

Connection status

A green dot indicates that the app can establish a connection to the device. A red dot indicates that the app cannot reach the device. Sometimes it can take a few seconds before the current status is displayed.

Main menu

Use these three points to navigate through the app and get to the following screens.

Under the menu item Settings you can link new devices to the app and get to the administration area.


History

This screen is used to navigate through the visitor history. 50 events are stored and are available in the history. The 51st event then overwrites the first one according to the ring memory principle.
An image in the visitor history is created as soon as a visitor presses the doorbell button. Images cannot be deleted manually for consistency and security reasons. If any data protection requirements apply, you can completely disable the history in the administration area to ensure compliance.

Visitor history images

If you press and hold on an image in the visitor history, you can save the image on your mobile device and forward it e.g. by email.

Navigation

Click and swipe the small images to switch between events in the visitor history.

Navigation switch

Please click here to switch between ring events, motion events or video recordings. The latter requires an active Cloud Recording Pro subscription and allows unlimited storage volume.
