Hopefully I’m posting this in the right section but I’ve read a lot on here about cameras, supported, not supported, working and not well, etc.
What I’m trying to accomplish is seeming a bit different than most things I’ve read because my MAIN focus is a decent camera in a room (performance room in my basement studio) but I can also see that room with a camera to my control room on tv via hdmi I’m guessing. I’m very much at the starting point at investigating, but even just doing this seems difficult. I would also really like to have it be a camera that integrate with smartthings of course.
So what I’ve come up is using a Wireless/Wifi camera and someone had suggested getting one of these android mini pc’s (in order to get camera on the tv via HDMI with an app that doesn’t time out]:
So that will get a lot of different cameras to the tv fairly easily. I was actually looking at this one.
So first of all, I could be wrong that this will even work but my main points are that it’s wireless, has a decent picture and I can show it on tv without it timing out like I’ve seen with some programs.
So that being said, since I think a LOT of different cameras could work in this scenario if the mini pc is in the equation, then are their any cameras that could work this way and maybe has some smartthings integration?
Would love to hear what opinions are. If I’m even starting on the right foot with this. Sure cost is a factor but I think it’s important enough to me to spend a few bucks on
