This is a demo project for a home appliance video doorbell implemented for Android Things with Firebase. It's also the subject of my talk "Connect your Android Things with Firebase".
There are three components to this project:
- An Android Things app (the doorbell)
- A companion app (homeowner app)
- A backend implemented with Cloud Functions
The Android Things app lives under "thing", and the companion app lives under "app". They both need to be added as apps to a Firebase project. The backend lives under "backend" and should be deployed to the same project with the Firebase CLI.
The latest version of the slides of the related talk can be found on SpeakerDeck. There are some slides with code and a helpful system diagram that shows how the following Firebase and Google APIs were used:
- Cloud Firestore
- Cloud Storage
- Cloud Messaging
- Cloud Functions
NOTE: A service account is required for the Cloud Functions code to
run correctly. The script under
backend/scripts/config-env.sh will help
you get your service account file added as an env var to deploy with the
