If no to Doorbird, has anyone found another hardwired doorbell camera that can be used?

any doorbell camera that you can access the RTSP address, should work fine with sighthound

Hello,

Checking briefly into Doorbell, it does seem as if you are able to access the RTSP stream from that camera. This should allow you to connect it to Sighthound Video. However, since we have not worked with this camera in-house, it might be a good idea to contact their support to confirm that they do not block third-party applications from access the video stream.

Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns, thank you!

Regards,
-Kevin

Good point. The camera is rather pricey so I have been looking for other options. One that came up is the dbell from https://www.dbell.ca.

Any experience or thoughts on the dbell?

It checks off all the wants (specifically Ethernet hardwire with PoE) that I have so I am thinking that I will buy it and try it. If it does not work it still has a great offering to bridge with.

Hey Peter,

It does look like that camera does support RTSP and Onvif which is what Sighthound would need. If you do end up purchasing this camera, please don't hesitate to contact support if you need help setting it up within Sighthound Video.

Regards,
-Kevin

Just wanted to add my experience to this post.

Based on this thread, I purchased the dbell HD Live Doorbell Camera via Home Depot. They just released a new App, so there was some confusion while following their installation instructions. However, I was able to install the camera, sync it with the smartphone app, and can monitor it via the app or via RTSP.

The doorbell does ring the phone, and records the video. PHysically, the doorbell feels very nice and professionally made. Has optional IR. And includes a 30 degree offset if you don't want the camera looking straight ahead.

HOWEVER, I can't seem to get it to work with Sighthound Video. The Dbell will be my second network camera, so I have experience setting one up. I can access the Dbell RTSP stream using VLC from the same PC running Sighthound, and using the same RTSP path I specify to Sighthound.

I'll probably open a ticket with Sighthound if I can't work it out.

I have the DBell HD as well and have tried in the past to get it recognized by SightHound, with no success. I have not spent endless time trying and I have not reached out to DBell for any support. Sounds like time for me to see what the issue is with connecting.

Maybe the new app will help. I had wanted to assign a dedicated IP address to the camera but the old app was not helping make that happen. I felt like the camera simply was not responding to configuration edits. It gave me the impression that the DBell was the problem and not SightHound.

I should note that I have three Lorex and 2 TrendNet cameras connected to SightHound via IP. All cameras are powered over IP which is the way the DBell is also powered (one of the primary reasons for me to select the DBell).

The selection of a contact or non contact all kinds of sensor depends on your application. Although non contact technology seems advantages it is not possible to use non contact Nagano keiki Pressure sensor for each and every application. Some non contact abs speed sensor like laser and ultrasonic sensors may be dangerous. The advantage of non contact sensors are that there is no mechanical contact so there is no friction and the mazda 6 suction control valve does not wear out. Hence operating cycles are more. Non contact suction control valve are more costly compared to contact Speed Sensor. Operating temperature and frequency response of a contact Pressure Sensor is high. Some non contact sensors like ultrasonic sensors may have a blind range.
