IP video door bell

Video doorbell “peer to peer” to open to visitors from your iPhone or Android Smartphone

In the same time our video entry SIP developments “high end” based on the Raspberry Pi, we realized that it would be a shame to miss the needs of customers looking for a small, simple and cheap device devoid benefits evolutions of the Raspberry but doing the job.

We have begun testing a small very promising video door station since for a very low price, it enables communication with your Android smartphone or iPhone.

Unlike other similar products good manufacturing Asian markets we found some advantages to this product:

  • managing an electric strike the choice of using WiFi or Ethernet connection
  • Possible connection in local mode without being dependent on an external server
  • Audio and video quality correct
  • Video surveillance and alarm options (we have not had the time to explore)

Disadvantage at this stage of our tests: no connection to the exit button (fortunately we have a timed relay board for that)

NAS serverToday we received this interesting question about SIP server and NAS from a visitor of our blog:

“I was wondering if there is a way to configure Asterisk on the Synology DiskStation to be the SIP server and communicate with Oyoma Door Phone and android devices (Oyoma door phone client).
That would be fantastic. (Just cant figure it out)
Synology = Awesomeness (www.synology.com)”

My answer was then: “I think that it should work. There are few commands we have to care in order to avoid changes with video packets.
The only way is to try….”
