Aiphone has this in their IP based intercom series. I have also done it with the Milestone mobile client, independent of the intercom. The user brings up the Milestone app to see who is at the gate, then touches the icon for I/O control to trigger a relay on the camera, which parallels the unlock relay in the intercom.
Hi Kenny, Dahua have a range of intercom products and some models can be upgraded to SIP, using which you can control the gate from your smartphone using it's app.
Just check with your local Dahua distributor, or else we can help you out.
Mobotix is able to do what you want to accomplish.
"the customer wants to be able to open the app, see the video of who is at the gate... and click a button to open the gate."
If the customer doesn't need notification, then you can simply use IP Cam Viewer Pro.
The app will allow your customer to see the camera at the gate and activate the camera output (which can relay a release signal to the gate)
Mobotix T25 IP Video intercom will do this with our Free app.
Yes our intercom T25 intercom can do notifications to the MxApp, MxManagement center, and the new upcoming MOBOTIX App (iOS,Android), VOIP/SIP, or a combination thereof simultaneously or consecutively. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like more info.

You can do this with any Dahua camera that has I/O connections. The Dahua apps (DMSS) have a simple push button that creates a contact closure on the camera to output on the I/O connection. As long as your opener utilizes a simple contact closure, that's all you should need.
