sorry, I fully appreciate that I am probably doing something very silly to not get this working but…
I have the following esp32 cam from Amazon
what I am aiming for is if a binary sensor triggers movement in home assistant a snapshot is taken of the area that has movement. The binary sensors are MQTT and currently happily turn on lights.
I am able to see the webserver screen
And take stills and start the stream from it.
However, i cannot seem to get it to connect to HA at all.
it also seems to power off after about 4 minutes and needs restarting.
Is what i am trying to do possible, and is anyone able to talk me through it, please.
I am running HA on a laptop pc running ubuntu.
