Home automation ideas on the Vero


#1

Hi All,

Wondering if anyone has done anything using this box to display HTTP feeds from Cameras in the home.

I am using Blue Iris as my CCTV system and have OpenHab. I can easily pull HTTP feeds from the cameras but displaying them may be tricky. Perhaps some clued Vero users can suggest an option?

I can write Openhab rules that will automate this with voice but its about how to send a http stream to a particular device and display that on the TV

Any thoughts or suggestions?

Thanks
Kris

Kodi has a JSON-RPC API; and can be controlled via HTTP. So you could use this to start video playback on a device automatically. It’d make sense to configure static IP addresses for your devices.
