Has anyone gotten the Amcrest ASH21 indoor PTZ camera working with HomeAssistant? I have two AD110 doorbell cameras, which work really well. The ASH21 works with the same Amcrest SmartHome app, but I can’t seem to get it to connect to HomeAssistant.
It’s connected using WiFi (not ethernet) and it has a static IP assigned to it. I’ve got it set up using the same connection settings as my AD110 cameras, which looks something like this:
amcrest: - host: 192.168.1.116 name: "PTZCam" username: !secret amcrest_username password: !secret amcrest_password scan_interval: 1 stream_source: rtsp binary_sensors: - motion_detected - online sensors: - sdcard
In the logs, it’s showing a CommError, but digging in it’s getting a connection timeout. I noticed these seem to be kind of weird, because in the app it only shows the hardwired connection’s MAC address, and it’s showing the wrong IP address (even though I can see it’s connected correctly via WiFi). Is it possible this would only work with HomeAssistant if using ethernet?
