I'd like to turn the recording of a few UniFi cameras on or off based on HSM's status.
If HSM is set to Home, I'd like to disable recording.
If HSM is set to Away, I'd like to enable recording on a few particular cameras.
Has anyone had success integrating with Ubiquiti UniFi Protect/cameras? If so, any tips you could share?
@tomw has a really nice driver. Not sure about specifically recording but I use it for our G4 doorbell and picking up smart detection from the other cameras.
Thanks for the mention, @markbellkosel84
I don't support changing the recording modes in my driver today, but I just did an experiment and can add it (and enable switching between always/never/motion).
I can add this functionality, but I'm not familiar with HSM. @jsfinn, if I add custom commands to my driver to support this, will that work for you? For example, if you can trigger a Rule Machine rule on an HSM settings change, then you could call a custom command on my driver to make the setting.
This sounds incredible. Thank you, @tomw! I would certainly look into it this weekend when I have some downtime.
I made this update and released it as version 1.3.2 in HPM.
There's a new command,
setRecordingMode, with a parameter that needs to be either
never. Give it a try and let me know if you have any issues.
This is so generous, internet stranger. I can't wait to tinker with this later on. I'll let you know how it goes. Thank you! Thank you!
That's how they roll around here. Great group.
Absolutely amazing. I'll do more testing later but this seems to work exactly like I was hoping for. @tomw, you're really incredible. Thank you so much!
