Camera feed privacy option to blur video feeds on a per camera basis or all cameras

I like having feeds on my dashboards but I don’t always want them visible if others can see my dashboard. I may be showing my dashboard to someone, or maybe sharing it in snapshots or videos online.

It would be nice to have a way to blur the video stream of a camera feed as a sort of privacy mode without having to disable the feed itself. Having a way to set the degree of blur would allow the user to pick how much detail can still be seen.

You might be able to do this with a “privacy” input_boolean, a card-mod template and the css blur property.

Genius! I have no idea how to do it, but I guess I will start my research and share results. A built in solution would be great though :slight_smile:

I’m not sure if it will work for streams. Worth a try.

@tom_l I found an easy way to use CSS to have a privacy mode on cameras. Turns out it was baked into the picture-glance card:
