Good morning. I’m getting frustrated with trying to settle on a camera to use with my ST system. I feel like I’ve spent 12-15 hours on the community boards trying to find workarounds and I’m fairly certain I’ve exhausted all of the things I’ve seen people suggest might work. I’ve tried the following:
Samsung SmartCam HD Pro 1080p Full-HD Wi-Fi Camera ($129)
Works well, integrates nicely with ST, but won’t integrate with SmartTiles/ActionTiles after the most recent firmware update.
Amcrest IP2M-841 ($79)
Excellent picture quality, love that it has pan/tilt/zoom, unable to integrate with ST even with a custom device handler after an April 2017 firmware update. There’s a more recent firmware update (June or July 2017) but that doesn’t seem to solve the problem. The price point on this device is splendid, but only adds to the frustration since it doesn’t integrate.
Arlo Q by NETGEAR – 1080p HD Security Camera ($150)
I’m open to trying this device next, but the trial process is getting a little expensive. Does anyone know with certainty that (a) this device will integrate to work with video in the ST app and (b) work as an embedded stream or still photo (I’m OK with either) in ActionTiles?
Thank you to anyone who is willing to take a moment to weigh in here.
