DoorBird adds biometric fingerprint sensor to IP door intercoms

Bird Home Automation has integrated fingerprint sensors from Swedish biometrics company, Fingerprint Cards AB, to its DoorBird IP video door stations of the D21x series.

Homeowners and residents can use DoorBird door stations to see and speak to their visitors and delivery services on the go via their smartphone and unlock the door when needed. Each door intercom features an HD wide-angle camera, motion sensor and audio system with echo and noise cancellation.

Keyless access control via RFID or PIN code is now joined by a new option of biometric fingerprint.

The full-frame touch sensor is based on patented technology by Fingerprint Cards AB and meet high convenience and security standards compared to line-based sensors. Fully integrated into the DoorBird software architecture, the fingerprint reader can be configured remotely at any time.

Homeowners can grant and withdraw access permissions via app or web-based dashboard, while also defining which event should follow when a certain fingerprint is detected. For example, an internal or external relay can be triggered, or an HTTP(S) command can be carried out. To prevent manipulation attempts, the fingerprint scanner is temporarily locked after 10 unauthorised access attempts.

The DoorBird models with one and two call buttons (D2101FV Fingerprint 50 and D2102FV Fingerprint 50) have the fingerprint sensor integrated into it and they can each store up to 50 fingerprints.

Customers can create their own customised IP video door stations equipped with a fingerprint sensor and other individual modules via the DoorBrid 3D Configurator.
