  • Alternative "Reolink cameras" clients

    While initial setup I use the reolink client I primarly use the cameras over RTSP using Frigate as my NVR integrated with Home Assistant for remote viewing and automation.
  • The privacy loophole in your doorbell

    I have several cameras hooked up to an NVR that has 2TB drives for constant recording (when space runs out older recordings are deleted. I usually have a few weeks available).

    I then have frigate[1] set up on a small fitlet (with a usb CORAL TPU), which gives me excellent control over detection (Humans vs dogs vs cars vs ...). Frigate grabs the streams from my NVR over rstp.

    This is then hooked up to my Home Assistant where I have various rules to send alerts to my mobile devices based upon object detected, location of camera, and time of day.

    Everything is internal. I have an always on wireguard on my family's mobile devices allowing them to access the cameras and home assistant alerts from anywhere.

    It works great, but I have refused to set this up for my extended family (even though they have the same NVR and _really_ want my system), just because there are a lot of moving pieces that need to be maintained (not to mention having a server + vpn)

    Not OP, but I _love_ talking about this stuff, so you're stuck with me. :D

    I'm a big fan of this project:

    It's open source, and you can hook it up to a Coral (or some other things, I think) to get crazy-fast classifications. But CPU is fine for only a few cameras.

    Once you get something like that setup, it's just a matter of finding cameras that support RTSP. You get them setup however you like (but preferably wired, with PoE), point Frigate at the RTSP stream, and that's it. Now you've got home security footage that never leaves your house. You can set up a VPN to watch the feeds from elsewhere. Frigate supports MQTT as well, so you can hook it into Home Assistant to get notifications, and even pipe person events into something like Double Take to get face detection:

    Frigate NVR or Ispy Agent DVR both free open source, full communities with object detection.
  • IP camera stream viewer?
    4 projects | | 28 Feb 2023
    I am unsure how this is being accomplished. If I use the "live" config option, the docs say that I have to set a height less than or equal to the height of the detect stream. And this issue appears to be a very hard no from the developer.

    my understanding is the point of that was if you were using frigate with home assistant or some other service like vlc that could accept a rtmp stream. From what I understand viewing with the frigate web UI is directly tied to the detect stream.

  • Inexpensive and decent hardware/software to run AI security cams?
    2 projects | | 8 Feb 2023
    What do you think would be the best hardware and software suited for this if we should go this route? I've been reading up on Frigate and Google Coral, but I am unclear on how it all fits together, the hardware required, etc, if that makes sense. And then what about an Android app to send notifications and view footage? Or would I set up postfix to send emails as notification? I am unsure of how this all would work.

    I'm using this docker container to give me an RTSP stream, then feeding that into Frigate.
  • Tell HN: Best Use for old iPads (that I found)
    3 projects | | 15 Jan 2023
    I've tried using LiveReporter[1] with an old iPad to send a RTSP stream to Frigate[2] running in a Proxmox virtual machine because I wanted to find out who was stealing plums from my trees. However, I never caught the plum-stealing-person, because LiveReporter crashed every few hours on my ancient iPad.

    Does anyone know of an app that reliably streams the camera of old iPads and iPhones to your local network that is not tied to any cloud service or subscription that collects unnecessary user data?
