After a false start in which I thought the DoorBird was DoA but actually turned out to be because I’d plugged it into the non-PoE switch instead of the PoE switch I’ve got it up and running on the bench. However, the doorbell and motion channels are greyed out and don’t provide the option to attach an item to them:
Is this expected? I’ve enabled debug logging to a separate file and can see entries added to the log when I press the doorbell.
I created a second user as you suggested and enabled all permissions for it. I was a bit surprised that you can’t select the username and password, you just have to accept the username and the password it autogenerates for you every time you tap the “change password” button. Not a big deal though.
Hmm. I’ve not seen that before. In the version you’re running, the doorbell and motion channels are defined as triggers, with profiles that provide the Switch ON/OFF functionality. It’s possible that defining items based on profiles doesn’t work in PaperUI. Can you confirm that you’re using PaperUI to link the channels to items?
So I’m thinking about getting rid of the trigger definition on the doorbell and motion channels, for exactly this reason. I’ll make them plain vanilla switches. In the meantime, as a workaround, you can create an .items file for the doorbell and motion channels as described in the README.
Like this (note the profile section in the channel definition).
Excellent! I just created the doorbell pressed switch item and it’s worked! Thanks! The switch status seems to permanently be on now, is it supposed to revert to OFF after a period of time? I could fix that with the expire binding and a proxy item.

Are there pros/cons to either of the approaches? I had assumed that the doorbell would be presented as a switch but only because that’s what I’m used to from other bindings.
@papaPhiL I’ve added a new thing type for the A1081 controller. The controller thing has three channels, one for each of the relays. The binding figures out the ID of the controller, so all you need to configure the controller thing is the IP address, user id, and password of the doorbell to which the controller is associated.
Let me know if you’re interested in trying it out and I’ll post the updated version.
Sure am I interested, great!
Unfortunately, I had to move the doorbird to an extra network to analyse it’s behavior. So I will need another week or so until this step is finished before I can start with testing.
I installed the addon and it seems to work finde so far with my D2101.
I would like to know if it is planned to also support the indoor video station (A1101). I am especially interested in controlling the LED and performing calls in order to use the station as a speaker for notifications.
