I’ve been trawling through the community to find some answers and as soon as I find an answer it leads to another question…
So, the premise…
I currently have a few Arlo cameras dotted around and use IFTTT via webhooks to alert OH of any movement and also arm / disarm the cameras based on OH presence detection…all good.
Recently IFTTT has changed their business model so you now have to pay monthly if you want more than 3 applets, so - unless I start paying them - it means I’m stuck with 2 cameras and 1 arm / disarm applet.
So, my options are, bite the bullet, pay IFTTT and get more Arlo cameras, (I have been happy with them to date), or keep what I have for external security / alerts, and get some cheaper cameras for inside that work with OH for alerts / viewing. I have a nas so network cameras can record to there, or I’m happy with a cheap one running an sd card as I’m only interested in getting the footage if there is an issue.
I’ve found some cheap TP-Link cameras, (I have their excellent smart plugs around the house all controlled by OH), for £24 each, SD card storage and IP based…however searching the forum suggests that they aren’t easy / possible to integrate.
So, either (a) does someone know different or (b) can anyone recommend a decent cheap camera and binding to use instead???
Thanks in advance.
