Ip Wecam device handler/smartapp code?


(Spinn360) #1

Does anyone know if there is a currently working version for smartthings?

I’ve been searching to no avail except for a 2015 version that doesn’t appear to work I only find action tiles and blue iris info. Thanks in advance

Which smartthings app are you using? new or classic?


(Spinn360) #3

I’m using Classic, as nothing works right on the new one.

ok, just making sure. Are you wanting to watch the live stream through smartthings or something else?

Just take pictures when there’s motion.

I just found one by alt Alan and i’m going to Give it a try, the one I used previously was from RobLandry

Unfortunately I have had no luck with Alt Alan’s device handler either.

Any ideas?

would help to say what kind of cameras you’re trying to connect and what streaming protocol they use. RTSP, MJPEG, ONVIF, etc. I’ve seen several that work with RTSP.

Which ones use rtsp? I’ve hacked a few Wyze cams to provide rtsp feeds.

Android cameras. Ip Webcam is an app that turns old phones into ip cameras.

I can connect to the cameras using a web browser typing in ip:port shows the ip camera interface.

I’ll give the generic camera code a go though!

Honestly I don’t know what kind of streaming protocols they use. I was hoping someone had already made something. And they did, back when HTTPGet was still usable in a LAN network, but then everything changed to HubAction for LAN devices. So I either have to figure out how to convert the HTTPGets to HubActions (which yesterday I did attempt, but the parse method didn’t seem to do anything, after the hubaction was returned. So it looks like possibly the route to go will be most likely creating a smartapp that creates the child device and a smart app that handles the hubAction connections to the LAN device. I swear this gets more complicated the more it shouldn’t be, but I figured I would just see if anyone had written something new for IP Webcam the android app that turns old phones into IP webcams so I can have motion trigger a picture take. Looks like nope… althought that generic video camera deviceType says it allows for live streaming when in the network… I am really looking for more of a security picture when I am out of the LAN network.

Thanks!

That generic video camera works for video streaming. No video capture or picture capture, so not really what i’m looking for. Perhaps I can tinker with it and add take picture as a function. Right now i’m just too busy to try and figure it out.
