    Routes motion alerts for Dahua, Alhua and Lorex camera streams to homebridge-camera-ffmpeg

    This plugin only supports VideoMotion alerts, not any SmartMotion detection. You must disable those features in order for this plugin to work correctly. Please check issue #15 if you have compatible hardware and would like to contribute SmartMotion dectection

    -- Confirmed working with:

    Dahua DVR Dahua Standalone Camera Lorex DVR
    - - LHV1004 DHV
    DHI-HCVR4116HS-S3 - -
    DH-XVR5116HS-X - -
    - DH-IPC-HDBW4631R-S -
    DHI-NVR4104HS-P-4Ks2 - -
    - - Lorex NR818
    - N43AJ52-B -

    but lots of Dahua/Lorex NVRs and standalone cameras share this VideoMotion api.

    Override Camera Connection Credentials

    This is useful if you have standalone IP Camera(s) (not going through an NVR), a mix of IP Cameras and NVR(s), or multiple NVRs.

    To define a host/user/pass on a camera simply add the cameraCredentials object. If you have a top level host/user/pass defined, this object will override it.

        "cameras": [
            {
                "index": 0,
                "cameraName": "Driveway"
                "cameraCredentials": {
                        "host": "XX.XX.XX.XX",
                        "user": "admin",
                        "pass": "XX"
                }
            },
    
    • If using a standalone camera, the index will always be 0
