POE IP Cameras


#1

Im new to ST and I have a question about security camera

I’ve got 4 POE IP Camera’s (from old security system) and was wondering if there was any way of getting this connected to smartthings?

If not, what is the best option if I want local storage of recording as I don’t want to pay a monthly fee. I have a server in the house.

I use Blue Iris running on an old laptop, it can be linked to any IP camera and can pass streams to Smartthings and SmartTiles.

Try @pstuart’s Generic Video Camera Device Type. Works great!
