Continuous Record, with Motion Alerts


#1

Do you know of any setups that satisfy these requirements?

  1. 4 outdoor cameras continuously recording to a base station
  2. If any of the cameras detects motion then a phone notification is raised
  3. Can see video streams for the cameras from phone
  4. Integrates with ST, so can turn off alerts if we’re home for certain cameras (optional)

ST things integrations is limited. The Samsung smartthing pro is what I use.

  1. 4 outdoor cameras continuously recording to a base station
    With Blue Iris installed on a machine you can record to the computer. I have found n NVR option for these cameras
  2. If any of the cameras detects motion then a phone notification is raised
    The Samsung app will notify of any Alerts
  3. Can see video streams for the cameras from phone
    Yes , same app allows streaming and recording of events to a SD card
  4. Integrates with ST, so can turn off alerts if we’re home for certain cameras (optional)
    Nativity integrates to ST

Alternatively , Foscam has a few options with some Custom DTH code for ST integration. They offer a NVR but BI works the same. Foscam App does alerts and live streaming. Cloud storage as well. I tested an R4 camera but found the App slow to connect. No app SD card access.

You can do everything in your list with bog standard IP cameras (cheap) and a combination of Blue Iris, webCoRE and the ‘Generic Video Camera Connect’ app:
