Ring Doorbells

Hey all.


Does anyone know if the Zipatile can integrate with the Ring doorbell systems?


I have a client who has asked this question.

I don't think is fully compatible, perhaps you can add the camera as IP camera, but as far as I know Doorbird is the only doorbell fully compatible with Zipato, however I would open a ticket on Zipato support and ask them directly.

I was looking to do the same. Does anyone know if it is possible to load up the ring android app onto the zipatile and to get it to work that way? Would it load automatically if the ring doorbell is pressed? Many thanks

i have a common wireles doorbell, a z wave door sensor (NeoCam for $13) is connected to inside unit. when the doorbell bells, i have a rule, which sends a command to tablet, where tasker is runnig, which can perform any operation (play a sound, say something, open a camera window from TinyCam Monitor for 1 minute)


but i'm using really old tablet for this, i don't have zipatile

isnt tasker grand. I love it. You could have used the Fibaro Binary sensor here instead of the door sensor, would be a bit cheaper, and would fit inside the bell housing.

is the Fibaro binary sensor, cheaper than this? had it for $16 ($13 was a mistake)

the door sensor is outside the doorbell, but it is not a issue

no, thats cheap. Thought it was a fibaro version. I didnt realise this had an external sensor input like Fibaros.

doesn't have real HW inputs, but you can solder two wires directly on the mainboard :)

no Ring is not supported. They are a hard company to get an sdk off. They pick and choose who they integrate with. Also the Camera is not RTSP or Onvif compatible, so you are out of luck.

Side loading the apk will give you the app on the Zipatile, but notifications will not work as they require Google Services to function, which Zipatile doesnt have.

The only way is via IFTTT, use the Ring and Maker(now web hooks) channel and a virtual meter in Zipato.

ps Doorbird isn't fully supported, just the sensors, door release, etc. The actual intercom part still goes via the internet and the Doorbird app. Also, as the app is installed via the app repo, you are dependent on Zipato releasing the New version of the app to the app repo to update. You cant even side load the apk because of this.

I'm not sure if anyone has tried to use the SIP server within the Doorbird with the Zipato SIP server? But I would be interested in hearing of any attempts or results. I just haven't had the time to do this. And my Pro licence expired before SIP was released.

@Adrian, what version of the Ring app were you able to successfully run on the ZIpatile. The latest version crashes on my ZipaTile.

i havent run the ring app on a zipatile. I dont have any ring intercoms so never needed to. Try downloading an earlier ring apk then and installing this. Like I said though, the issues may be no Google Play Services related.

Thanks. I'll play around and report back here and on the wiki.
