Configuration in TapHome
SIP server for your doorbell is Core. Since the doorbell can not call more than one number / receiver for each button, it is not possible to use the indoor unit of the doorbell in parallel with TapHome. Instead, a tablet with TapHome application is required.
The doorbell should have static IP address. TapHome cloud is used to transfer audio and low framerate snapshots from camera, if you are receiving call outside local network via the internet.
It is possible to control relays that are located on doorbell. On Android and iOS, doorbell call is received as regular VoIP phone call.
