I installed Home Assistant on my Raspberry Pi 4 Model B yesterday. I’ve set up a few integrations (Google Cast, Tuya, and A Dell Printer) and am trying to add a Merkury Innovation Smart WiFi Camera. I can see its feed and control it in the TuyaSmart app (on Android) but I can’t set it up in Home Assistant. My goal is to save 5-minute recordings (MOV, MP4, I’m okay with any format) from the camera in a file like this:
/home/pi/ SecuritySys/ <YEAR>_<MONTH>_<DAY>/ <START_TIME_24_HOUR>_to_<END_TIME_24_HOUR>.mp4 or mov or whatever
…or somewhere on a network drive so my SD card doesn’t run out of space.
I thought first I could set up the camera and then I could try to write a script to save files, so I went over to
http://<RASPI_IP_ADDR>:8123/ and then to “Configuration > Integrations”. And also, I’ve already added the Tuya integration so I don’t know why the camera isn’t discovered automatically. So I didn’t know what I should do. I just clicked “Add Integration” and tried searching for “camera” but couldn’t find any integrations. I couldn’t find any when I tried “merkury” either.
Can someone please help?
