J5 2K smart doorbell is a slim and compact design smart doorbell equipped with a 2K security camera. In addition to seeing the video when doorbell button is pushed, users also can integrate this doorbell to other systems such as Synology NAS and Dahua/Hikvision NVRs which support 24 hours video live view and recording. In this article, we introduce you how to integrate it into the popular Home Assistant, and integrate into Apple HomeKit indirectly so that you’re able to access the video on you rApple devices (iPhone, iPad, Apple TV).
It should be noted that only J5 CloudEdge version can support this feature, because the firmware supports ONVIF protocol. To achieve this integration, users need to enable the ONVIF connection, as it’s disabled when you firstly use this product. Setting up this product according to the instruction manual of J5, running the app and going to doorbell’s settings, enable “Onvif” on page of Onvif Settings, then set a password for it.
