There might be some more modern-looking devices (The Doorbird), but I needed a keypad to allow entrance with a numeric code, and this seemed to be the only one to include that option.
Now the bad part. At first, the software was just not ready for prime-time. The unit had frequent disconnections, choppy audio, time sync would just not work… I was ready to give up but I got in touch with their Canada support website. They were extremely kind and sent me a firmware update that got rid of pretty much all the annoyances (126.96.36.199 to 188.8.131.52). I had some trouble with the upgrade and they even offered an exchange unit with the upgraded firmware. At the end, the upgrade went through and the unit is working fine.
It’s solid and versatile. It has everything you can ask for in an IP camera (rtsp streaming, onvif, NVR-ready, etc) plus the added benefit of being able to watch and talk to a visitor, unlock the door from anywhere, get motion alarm alerts through email or ftp, and even allow entry through a simple numeric code in the keypad. You can let someone in with a code and then immediately change it in the app so it no longer works. It might not be the most modern looking, but it’s certainly the most flexible. Just make sure you get the upgraded firmware.
However, When I was finally able to install the device at our gate, we had nothing but problems. I went back and forth with their support team many, many times and could never get it to work correctly. Our phones might ring 1-5 seconds after the doorbell button was pushed, or it may be 5 hours. You never knew what you were going to get. Since the signal must go through their servers and app, I'm pretty sure the issue is in one of those things. But, they won't admit that and won't refund my money either. I have tried a couple other devices and they ring through fine. It's obviously their issue and not my phone's or network. So I'm left with an expensive paper weight.
UPDATE (8/6/18): The company has offered to replace my unit with a 3rd generation unit coming out soon. They say the new generation unit and associated servers should fix the issues that I'm having. I am really hoping it fixes the problems because i really wanted to like the device as it was the perfect solution for what we needed. I will post an update when the new unit arrives and I have tested it. I am revising my rating to 2 stars because the company is trying to make it right.
UPDATE (10/10/18): I did not get an updated device but the company did roll out a new app and server connections that seem to have fixed most of the issues that we were having. Still have some intermittent issues, but not sure if it is the device, the users not pressing the button all the way or some other issue. I would say at this point that it is probably functioning well enough to actually use on a daily basis. The company has been in regular contact with me to see how things are going and i greatly appreciate that.

I did have some challenges with reliability originally and the bell button no longer ringing the app, but that was rectified with the latest firmware upgrade and factory reset from details published on GBF Electronics website. The first thing you should do is upgrade the firmware and if you are running the latest, I highly recommend watching the install video. Customer Service is also very responsive and helped with a bad keypad within the same year. There are some important notes for the Gatecam application regarding default password of "1111" for unlocking remotely as well as selecting Doorbell2 for the Doorbell generation, not actual doorbell count. Doorbell2 is for latest model and latest firmware which allows advanced features from the app itself.
The other important item is to create an account from each Gatecam device running the application (2 ipads, 2 ipPhones, android, etc.). If you do not run with separate login creds then it can get confused on the ringing inbound.
I also ran into problems with initially setting up the device from the App on Android. I had to setup with iPhone/iPad, connect to the factory default SSID and from there the Android Pixel2 XL on 8.1.1 was able to find the Gatecam on the same local LAN.
When setting up the keypad, settings can be managed from the web interface following the install guide and IP address hard set for wireless if needed.
