Adds cameras from ESPHome to HA with the native API.

Most of the logic is handled in aioesphomeapi package (images are large and therefore need to be transported in several packages)

Some of the supported boards have inadequate cooling and tend to overheat. So the camera is only active when something is requesting an image. The camera outputs individual JPEG images (encoded in the camera module itself) which are transmitted as a stream (so very much like MJPEG)

There are two types of images for this integration.

  • async_camera_image - A still image, will trigger one image to be taken.
  • handle_async_mjpeg_stream - An image stream, will hold the image active for 5s after each request_image_stream call.


  • The code change is tested and works locally.
  • Local tests pass with tox. Your PR cannot be merged unless tests pass
  • There is no commented out code in this PR.
