New smart app to link the virtual/simulated garage door device with two actual devices

none of my cameras will work … what driver do you use… cant really debug without a camera that works in that mode. i am unable to get my samsung or wyze cameras working standalone in smarthings.

I’ve copy and paste the Generic Camera Device Handler’s code from here (Generic Camera Device using local connection (new version now available)) to your code. That’s it. No drivers need. Hikvision’s cammera works with RTSP protocol.

I did something similar using pstuarts original Generic Camera Device code. Combining it with this smart app. I’m repurposing an old Conbrov camera that doesn’t natively support streaming outside of their app or a complicated setup with a third party server. It does however have a snapshot.cgi so I can retrieve an image using the “Take” function.

To Install, follow instructions above to setup the garage components first.

Camera settings will be customized using the settings button (gear icon) in the device itself. Refer to the original camera post for community help/tips/hints on how to setup different camera types.
