I found a list of “supported” cameras here in the community. At first, I didn’t recognize any of the names.
I’m assuming (and this is actually the real question) that cameras like Ring, Arlo, etc are not listed since they are… proprietary from the standpoint that they are not quite so open-source and probably required not only using their API, but you access them via their cloud? And the listed cameras can be used totally locally?
I did find some that are in the list that appear to totally meet my needs.
Agree, this cloud business is counter-productive in order to establish an ‘independent’ solution.
I am an IT project mgr, and never understood the move to the cloud for government entities; in fact I was involved in two major IT cost assessments in agencies > 80,000 employees, and on-prem turned out significantly cheaper; mainly due to resource costs and significant discounts on hardware (>40%).
It is an old thread but that is because that is how the binding developer like to track community issues. The IP camera binding is made to work with any of the bizzilion IP cameras available, check amazon for anything from $50 to whatever. If an ethernet cable plugs into it, the binding will run it. It even works with esp32cams
