Door Controller

Door controller with door bell and camera
The door control uses two separate methods for audio and video streaming, so it is possible to use a video only, audio only, or a combined audio / video stream for your intercom / camera.
First, create an intercom to be selected in the properties of the door controller as the linked intercom
To do this, select the item ''Network devices'' in the periphery and then insert an intercom using the ''Add network device'' button
If you are using a Loxone Intercom, you can also add it via ''Network Device Search''

If the memory of your Miniserver is already quite full, the Miniserver might automatically cancel the download of the image. There is no limit to the maximum size of an image, this depends on the free memory of the Miniserver.
