    LCD Text G4 Doorbell

    Does the LCD Text option work on the Doorbell? I am trying to set it up so when someone's phone connects the Doorbell Welcomes them on the LCD of the Doorbell. But in the control device options, it's not showing up even when it's turned on in the settings. Thanks.

    Hi!

    It works for me. Make sure the firmware of your Doorbell is recent, since there have been a few changes recently on this. Also, make sure you are running the latest version of the plugin.

    What settings did you enable? You will also need "Type" to set it to custom.

    Thanks!

          And what version of the plugin are you using? If you have installed a beta, a newer release version might not show up automatically.

            I am running the latest beta. Just upgraded 2 min ago. It's not showing the text or type option on the device

              Could you toggle type and text once more? It should (re)create the missing features.

                Oh and please use the device list view, not the grid view (top right, just below the search box).

                    Can you click on the LCD Duration feature, select the "Unifi" tab and copy the JSON file shown? It might contain information some might consider private (SSID, MAC, IP etc) so you might want to prefer sending it using a PM.

                    Please copy the JSON completely, leaving the structure in place. Preferably not a screenshot.

                    Thanks!

                      Also, does the LCD text work if you try to change it from the Unifi Protect system?

                        Interesting. The lcdMessage section is empty. For my doorbell, it is always filled with the current info. Must be a firmware difference.

                        Either way, I've tried to work around that. Please try the latest beta and let me know. Thanks!

                          OK, The device now lets me send a custom text to the doorbell. But It doesn't let me put custom text in my event.

                            Hi, I assumed if it can be set on a device, it can be set with an event as well. For some reason, setting text and hitting "submit" is not something that can be done with an event.

                            Let me look into this and figure out a solution.

                              To resolve this shortcoming in HS4, I created a special event action. Beta 4.0.8.5 has support for the new "Unifi Protect Doorbell LCD" action that should do exactly what you are looking for.

                              Let me know how this works for you. Thanks again!
