Doorbird Intercom Alternative – BAS-IP. Who Suits You Better?

What is Doorbird

Doorbird is a German company that has been manufacturing IP intercoms since 2010 (however, the first model appeared in 2015). Doorbird is focusing on intercom mobile applications. The company just recently made its first intercom monitor.

The main office of the company is located in Berlin, Germany. Following the German tradition, most panels are made of stainless steel. Some Door bird panels like D2101 or D2102 are completely similar to another German brand – Siedle.

The company’s clients are private houses and large apartment complexes with gated communities. For individuals, the company offers the replacement of the existing doorbell with a small intercom Doorbird panel with a call function on the mobile APP. And for large complexes – an intercom system based on IP.

Doorbird has made integrations with many companies such as Contol4, Crestron, KNX, and more. The company did not forget about the open API either. You can find the API on the official website of the company.
