MxBell Features

The MOBOTIX MxBell app can be used as a mobile interface station for MOBOTIX door stations with P3 processor (PXA320). If someone rings the doorbell, the ringing is signaled via push notification in MxBell. MxBell can show the door station's live image, you can talk to the visitor and open the door.

You can also integrate other cameras, show their live image and open an audio connection to a camera. MxBell automatically finds and integrates all cameras in the network that are also accessible via WiFi. Note that you can also add a remote address in addition to the local IP address for each camera or door station. The local address is used for accessing the cameras via the WiFi at home, while the remote address is used when you are on the road. For this purpose, you can define "locations" in MxBell. For each camera and location, you can specify either the local or a remote address and select the bandwidth to use for that connection. When using slow connections, the app will pull smaller images at a lower frame rate (1 image/sec) from the camera or door station and reduce the audio quality.
