You would only need an app to access the information provided by the doorbell. This can be accessed on your smart phone or computer. Other than that, it's a pretty all in one system.
It needs a 16v 10A power source. I initially tested this out on a benchtop power supply, it did not draw very much amperage at 16v but I did not really take note of the draw when the IR LEDs were lit.
You knows BUT my recommendation is to STAY AWAY from this doorbell. I have nothing but issues and problems from their site not being available for hours, to the voice not working. Hooking this doorbell to another system like your own seemed compatible. SD Card storage? Any storage size SD Card that would fit in the doorbell would work.
All functions of the doorbell will work except for the following functions: - Recordings will not be available as the cloud is the only option for viewing your videos. Only live viewing will be available. - You will get human detection notifications (as well as other events) but it will not tell you who is at the door as the face recognition is related to the cloud service. If you have additional questions about the doorbell you can always contact us at 844.947.3638.
*Update* Part of the setup process should walk you step by step. You will have to register with the cloud upon setup. Once you do this the normal trial period is 15 days. However right now we offer 6 months free. Hello and thanks for the question. You should not have to subscripe however we are offering 6 months free right now.

Hello. Thank you for looking into our Wisenet D1 doorbell. Yes the kinks have been worked out. I own one and love it! I would say 99.99% of the time I have a strong signal and can stream HQ (high quality video). We have a 1 year warranty. Connectivity depends on the location of the router to the doorbell. Depending on the type of obstruction or interference, this will affect your connectivity. We recommend the use of a Wi-Fi extender in order to increase your network range. Thanks again.
