I am looking for some ideas to extend my camera functionality. Right now I have a webcore piston that acts on a series of virtual switches defined in HE. I have a series of Alexa routines that listen for phrases and control these switches. For example "Camera Wide" turns on a switch which executes an "http get" command in my QVR Pro NVR which sends a command to my Amcrest Pan/Tilt/Zone camera to zoom out. Similarly, I have a "Camera Hall", "Camera Kitchen", and several other commands.
The majority of my cameras are POE and I use QVR Pro to record them. The cameras are also all ONVIF and RTSP. I generally record and monitor off the RTSP stream.
What I would like to find out is if there are any extensions to HSM that might allow me to direct those cameras to take a snapshot and then perhaps email it with HSM Intrusion as the trigger. I have lots of HSM Triggered events in both Webcore and Rule Machine.
My question really evolves around whether there are any extensions or custom apps that provide functionality to cameras. I know this is a long shot, but I thought I would pulse the community for a direction in which to look.
