Anyone install door video/phone doorbell
« on: November 12, 2010, 08:55:49 pm »
I am looking to implement the following at my front door; it has a camera and from what I gather, it can hook into the phone system.

Does anyone here have any experience with this? Any watchouts?

Thanks,

GG

I was looking at something similar by Mobotix

However it is fairly pricey so I have been keen to find a cheaper alternative.

I would also like to know if anyone has played with these.

Cheers

Just an FYI, followed up with the CyberData folks and their video doorbell is still not available, they hope to have it within the year at about $500-600 price, and it will interface with Asterisk as another phone, it will also be available as a surveillance camera...

if anyone is aware of an alternative, please share.

If you want to go the phone route, get an ATA adapter, and regular analog phone based doorphone. For video, add an IP camera in the same room as the phone, and define the room of type Foyer/Entrance (iirc). That should take of the logic within LinuxMCE
