Adding an extra bell push button for access control before software version 1.10

Please note: This action must only be completed if the installation includes an extra, stand-alone bell push button that is separate from the external video unit.

The starting point for this step-by-step plan is a project for which the Project information has already been entered and for which a drawn or uploaded plan is available.

Click on add an action.

In the name field, enter #bell#..., adding, for example, the name of the location of the bell push button.

Click continue.

Click add an extra input.

Add the extra input here.

This can be either a single push button (with LED) or a push-button interface behind a (bell) push button. The configuring procedure for these two options is approximately identical.

In the example shown here, we use a push-button interface.

Select 4-fold push button.

We recommend connecting the bell push button with the red and blue wires.
