Problem with Doorbird app and Zipatile

Torsten Mueller shared this thanks 3 months ago

Hello,

I have a Doorbird D101 and Zipatile.

The problem is that the app needs to run permanently in foreground, otherwise I don´t hear when someone rings. But if the app is in the foreground the display is always on (I guess that comes from the Doorbird app).

How did you configure the Doorbird with Zipatile? Is there any best practice?

Doorbrid is badly implemented, and does not always work well.

Also doorbird is telling that there is an update,and you alsways have to click ok first, very anoying.


Best practice is when the doorbird app pops up is to close it afterwards.

Use the follwoing script , to turn on the screen of the zipatile on and off when somone pushes the bell.

Hi Dimitri,

thanks for that! I have already a rule similar to your rule.

But if I close the app after I used it, I don´t hear the doorbell next time because the app is not started. The app must be in the foreground all the time, otherwise the doorbell sound does not play.

I have the same issue - unless the Doorbird app is in the foreground, there is no doorbell sound.


That is not the only issue - the reliability of the audio is minimal - usually there is no useful audio between Zipatile and Doorbird.


I hope there are some fixes for this - I have built my house to suit the Doorbird, wiht the Zipatile as the intercom for it, and it certainly doesn't work at present - very frustrating.

for me the doorbird app stopped working correctly.

The app itselfs works on the zipatile if you start it.

But it will not respond anymore when you push the doorbird bell.

So no screen state and app not starting. Very frustrating.

i think doorbird have updated their api and now Zipato need to update their integration with Doorbird again. So try opening a ticket and see what support say. Good luck.
