We continue to investigate an Intercom Anywhere issue where less than 8% of calls connect without video. We have been working with the leading mobile carriers and testing various scenarios to replicate the incident and identify a solution.

Given the complex nature of intercom calls, we have not yet found a root cause. However, our testing has identified a strong correlation between video loss and network connectivity. Specifically:

Slow upload speed or throttling by ISP or mobile provide
Video failure (SIP limiting) on cellular networks (especially 5G)
Poor network connections

Partner Actions:
If you encounter this issue, please ensure that the project's ISP can sustain at least 10mbps upload speeds. Other network considerations should also be checked, such as the Chime Video Doorbell's internet connectivity.

Ensure that the Chime settings are configured appropriately within Composer Pro, and configure the following settings to maximize the Chime's performance even in poor network conditions.

Select the Chime Video Doorbell in System Design, select the Video Settings page, configure the Intercom (sub) stream:

Frame Size -- 1024x768
Max FPS -- 15
Bit Rate Control -- Constrained
Quality -- Excellent
Max Bit Rate -- 1 Mbps
Policy -- Frame Rate Priority

We will continue to work to improve the customer experience with Intercom Anywhere, even when proper network conditions cannot be met.
