I got this camera recently: http://www.gearbest.com/ip-cameras/pp_487830.html
For it’s price it is a super cool deal, the quality is literally not worse then dropcam.
How ever, it would be very nice if this camera could be integrated with smart things.
I see there is another blog post Xiaomi yi WiFi camera but in that post they describe how to connect xiaomi-yi camera to ST, which is a different from that “original xiaomi smart wi-fi 1080p camera” model.
I was wondering if anyone in community has been able to successfully integrate this camera with ST?
I guess the biggest question if anyone was able to enable rtsp protocol on this camera or not?
UPDATE: thanks to @lifeisfun! There is unlock for camera(1) that allows to broadcast via rtsp(default port for rtsp os 554) and smartthings application(2) that allows to display/view this rtsp stream in smartthings app.

Video streaming will only work when you viewing it on your local network. If you want to view this streaming over the internet you’ll have to either setup VPN or configure port forwarding on your router.
Both approaches require good networking knowledge and deserves its own post(probably not at smartthings forum).
Beware that by default the rtsp that camera broadcasts is not protected by any login and password so you probably will have to consider protecting it unless you don’t care that the world will be watching what your camera broadcasts.
