Homey Cameras

Thanks, everything works fine now :+1:

I have a Tp-link camera and tried to add it as a virtual yesterday. I tried http://“user”:“pw”@192.168.1.XX:8080/stream/snapshot.jpg but I get 401 unauthorized in Homey.
Works fine in a browser and username and password is correct.

Try to find the make and model here for the correct url .

I was able to add 2 out of my 3 IP cameras. For the Hikvision camera Im getting this error message when trying to obtain jpeg image. Content-Type"image/jpeg;charset"UTF-8"" not alloved Any idea how to fix this?

I have 2 Foscam’s that where added with the Foscam app and work fine.
I create snapshot for example when someone uses the doorbell.
What is the advantage with this new implementation over the foscam app?
Other then not using an exta app that is.

Known issue (see this thread). As far as I know, there’s no fix for it yet.

You can get the snapshot pushed to your phone, and there is live view possible.

How do you get live view?

And how can it be wrong, if through a browser the link opens everything without problems (http: //local_IP/cgi-bin/snapshot.cgi?Channel=2)? Too many nuances are obtained for the connection))). It turns out to configure the camera, I need to know the spelling of the link, which I can check only through the browser, I need to know that you can’t insert the text into the homey application before folding it. What else should I know for the device I purchased to work? Can wipe it, or knock on the table, and turn to the north, then after 5 minutes turn to the west and dance with a tambourine around HOMEY to make it work?))) I bought in order not to mess around and turn on and adjust, but it turns out I only encounter some problems. In this case, with the camera. I use old MicroDigital DVR4500.
To give a simple example, I could not install a camera in Domoticz either. Not knowing and not having any script writing scripts, I wrote an external creak that started on the doorbell and, using the above link, saved the photo from the camera to a folder and sent it to me through PUSHOVER. It was all done in the evening, here, in fact, a plugin was written, so simple, which I ask you to notice (EXPERIMENTAL), to which you basically provide a link to the photo and that’s it. It could be done by the ATHOM and handle links of any format, up to making a capture with rtsp.

Its like, it is now supported, good luck figuring out how.

@Jamie could it be that the camera function does not work. Seems to make a lot of nothing.
I have some Netatmo cams which are officially supported by athom but none of them do work. No pic, nothin :frowning:


It is both Welcome and Presence. I already reinstalled two of them. No change, no picture, no ability to make a flow …

Sorry @Friedi, i’m a little confused, why are you tagging me that the Cameras don’t work?

The only cameras I have any knowledge of is the Arlo Camera App.

Then sorry. Maybe I read wrong but the blog article says nothing about this.
It is described as follows.

Blockquote Camera devices can now be viewed from within the Homey app

And this I understand as this feature is for homey supported cams.

Hi guys,

I just solved my problem connecting Dahua camera. If anyone struggling adding Virtual IP Cam than in the camera menu you must set an authentication to OFF¨.


I use different Foscam cameras and use next URL
It works with four different cameras.
