I want to add cameras can be any protocol work with ST. If is wireless will be great, but can be any option on the market. I want to see cameras on ST but at the same thing I want to record when have motions. If is possible can I go to that cloud via ST mobile app and look what I need on the footage. Or can be other app for the footage, but I prefer on the sam ST. You guys have any solution or if can be a integration with a DVR system or something similar.
This is specifically about cameras that work with the SmartTiles dashboard, which if you aren’t using, I highly recommend. You could set up a dashboard with a bunch of cameras just to view, or add in other items like your Modes, sensors, battery levels, etc.
I use a Synology NAS with the Surveillance Station software with the Synology DS Cam app on mobile.
I integrate into SmartThings using this Smart App by swanny
His smart app will create ST devices for each camera and you can grab an image from it, do the pan/tilt/zoom thing, and trigger other smartthings on motion like a regular motion sensor can. Of course for viewing live video or recordings you’ll want to use the DS Cam app from synology…because smartthings just does not do that.
have you gotten this to update your home mode with smartthings routines at all? This is the only thing stopping me from moving over to synology for managing my cameras. (I use blue iris now which is very powerful profile wise but my laptop running is super old
