The binding integrates simple IP base cameras.
Almost every IP camera has a simple HTTP access API defined by Urls to access at least static images. This binding supports these types of cameras for fetching and displaying images in a openHAB UI. At a later stage motion/change detectors might be added as well as video processing.
All cameras supporting simple HTTP based API fetching for JPG/PNG images. Please contact the author Thomas Hartwig firstname.lastname@example.org for camera Url examples if not listed here.
|Vendor||Single snapshot URL||Video capture (not yet supported)|
Currently camera discovery is not supported, probably ONVIF might supported soon.
Currently a camera can be added and configured in the PaperUi for instance. Following parameters are supported:
- Poll time: the update interval of the image to fetch from the camera
- Snapshot Url: the url to fetch the image from see examples above
- Username: username when the camera is protected, this uses the standard HTTP authorization protocol, however username and password might be specified via the Snapshot Url as a parameter, please check camera model documentation for correct parameter syntax
- Password: password when the camera is protected
This is the base image channel which is updated periodically in the configured interval. This is currently the only supported channel.
