Chuangmi camera

didnt find on this forum if xiaomi chuangmi 720p camera is supported by hassio. Only 17$

I’m afraid this camera is not supported by hass. Unfortunately, I have two of them. I’m interested on writing a firmware for that device, but I have no time at this moment.


Or maybe it is!!!


Did you manage to get this to work?

i dont have this camera. I just was considering to buy it, but as i see, its not supported

This is my fallback camera configuration for no-name cheap cameras. It works most of the time:

- platform: mjpeg
  username: admin
  password: *********
  authentication: digest
  name: 406_south

(Your ip and port number may vary)

i use this cheap camera
and this short configuration works for me

# Camera
  - platform: ffmpeg
    name: My Camera
    input: rtsp://

Works great! I did not have to install older version of official firmware (I had my camera fully updated). When I deployed tf_recovery.img (step 2.2) it automatically downgraded my camera. Then I configured mijia-720p-hack.cfg properly and it’s done. Took me ten minutes.
Now I’m adding it to Hass.


I got the stream up, how do I get it in Hass, u have a config for me?

On configuration.yaml

  - platform: ffmpeg
    input: rtsp://YOUR_CAMERA_IP_HERE:554/live/ch00_0
    name: YourCameraName

Restart hass

Thanks, this indeed should work but I get no image. Should be me so I will look for a solution.

I have done some tests and I’ve found out the best solution: “motion eye” plugin. Just install and configure it from hassio marketplace and then add it to home with

  title: 'MotionEye'
  icon: mdi:eye
  url: 'http://IPaddress:blahblahblah'

Don’t know why but I can acces the camera but it won’t show in Hass, no image available is the message. Motion eye won’t start either, ‘bad gateway’… Any idea?

Hi guys … i have hacked my Xiaomi Chuangmi Camera and i would like to do 2 things …

  • use this cam with obs software to produce live streams (rtsp protocol)
  • use this cam and insert it on my android IP Cam Viewer to access it from outside (router nat configuration)

Is it possible both ?

Perhaps take a look at this:

hello, can anyone send compiled files to this cmsxj01c camera?

Anyone tested with a CMSXJ16A ?
What firmware are workable

same question about CMSXJ16A. Or is there another way, how to get work in HA. Like connect 3rd party service to Xiaomi Home account?

Me too, and also a newer model: CMSXJ16A
Tryed procedures but it’s not working.
I have some cmsxj01c in the house that are working properly with the hack.
Any help?

I bought the same model (CMSXJ16A) and only now have found that there is no integration. I’ll follow up here.
