This is not a SmartThings specific issue but wondered if anyone in the ST Community has tackled such an problem?
I have a number of Qvis-Eye5mp IP cameras both bullet and dome connected to my Qvis Falcon NVR.
The NVR sits in the AV cabinet under my primary TV. I would like the tv to change to the NVR HDMI input when movement is detected on a selected camera (Front Door), The TV has HDMI CEC capability meaning it changes input if a connected device (TV Box, Blue Ray Player etc) is turned on. I was hoping to be able to use the Camera/ NVR alarms to trigger an HDMI switch which will connect the NVR to the TV and therefore change input. Unfortunately unlike some commercial NVRs there are no direct connections to the alarm trigger contact in the NVR
Has anyone else achieved something like this? In the NVR there are options for sending an email or uploading to an FTP server. I could possible use IFTTT to use the email as a trigger which activates a smart switch but that might be a bit laggy due to time taken by email and IFTTT response.
Are there any other options like integrating the CCTV feed into ST that might work?
I know I could get a Ring doorbell but would ideally like to use what equipment is already installed. I do have an Amazon Fire TV Cube which integrates with Alexa if that helps.
