Thanks for the above, has anyone tried to set an HTTP motion alert from the camera, or from Amcrest's surveillance pro software using Maker API to capture it and activate a virtual motion device?
That's the only thing I want from my Amcrest cameras and I haven't figured out a way to do that other than using Tasker or Home Assistant so I am following this thread......
Right now they’re running through surveillance station on a Synology NAS which then sends the HTTP to Hubitat, I am not hopeful about getting the cameras to send it directly, but can’t hurt to ask. Lots of folk here smarter than I am on this stuff
Apparently this has all been done.
Many thanks to @rob121 who has put together a neat way to generate endpoint from Amcrest cameras to RM of Hubitat (via a RPI).
Thanks! I'll take a look at this during the upcoming weekend.
It looks like it is similar method that I do currently using Tasker and notifications; it just uses email.
I must admit that I'm a neophyte on linux, and the instructions are somewhat sparse. I haven't got it working yet, but I'm working on it.
Also, the email interface on the Amcrest cameras is something that I use already - so adding another address on the "To" line, is very elementary.
While I was hoping to find / develop a direct amcrest app/driver I have not had time to do so. I have setup blue iris and have been very impressed with it as well as its integration with Hubitat..... I do wish however it came in a Linux flavor a d dependant on windows...
