indeed a few weeks ago it was available on HACS, but i think because this custom card was updated 2 years ago it’s blacklisted
Black listing happens from the author.
I remember reading about it when he first created the “card” and saying it was only a temporary work around because people kept asking for it. So I am pretty sure he/she is no longer maintaining it and asked for it to be black listed.
But I use it every day and it works great for my needs
is there any alternative ? i used this card daily
I don’t know. I use this card daily as well
i’ve got this error https://github.com/custom-cards/surveillance-card/issues/10
So @niemyjski says it’s fixed ,but this card is still blacklisted ( HASC) ? so what’s the next step to de-list this ?
I may be able to do another pr to get it removed from the blacklist. I’ll try today.
Well, the documentation in HACS to blacklist the repository says " To add a repository to the blacklist, open an issue here
So my quest is that you need to open another issue in the same sport to have it removed.
I am pretty sure @ludeeus “created” HACS so he would probably be the best to ask…
HI @kkellner take a look to my yesterday replay in another post,
This is my code for LOVELACE Card. I´m getting 2/3 seconds delay
aspect_ratio: 92% camera_view: live entity: camera.camara_frente name: Camara Frente show_name: true show_state: false type: picture-entity
Let me know if it works
I have several (13) Amcrest cameras. In 3 of them, all IP2M-841’s, the video live stream is very delayed, sometimes by as much as 2-3 minutes. Restarting home assistant syncs it again, but not for long. I’ve found no way around this and I’ve tried everything I can think of. The custom-cards/ **surveillance-card**card shows the live stream on those cams with NO buffer, but that card isn’t how I want to use the cameras.
Home assistant is definitely buffering the stream somewhere as the Amcrest app shows the actual live feed.
Has anyone found a solution to this annoying issue?
Anyone? Any ideas?
How did you config the cameras?
I actually already use the sub steam. I tried that long ago. Even reduced the frame rate. No difference on these cams. The delay can be as much as 10 minutes!!! Wtf… this HAS to be something in the camera subsystem in home assistant. I don’t have a memory card in any of the cams.
And streaming quality? I mean, did you change sub stream configuration to lower frame and quality?
How did you configured cameras like as generic or ffmpeg?
In Lovelace did you congfured as live,
They are all the same… the ones that aren’t buffering, and the ones that are.
All set as follows:
- host: 192.168.1.190 name: outside resolution: low scan_interval: 5 username: admin password: !secret amcrest stream_source: rtsp # - host: 192.168.1.130 name: inside resolution: low scan_interval: 5 username: admin password: !secret amcrest stream_source: rtsp
There is a live view possible. You just have to change from a blueiris subscription to a free zoneminder one. I have live views working without a hitch for years now.
Works like a charm
So many things can go wrong with these setups, but I thought I’d just add that the eureka moment for getting my camera entities to show up in Lovelace was making sure the stream it was using was encoding in H.264 instead of H.265.
There’s also the WebRTC custom component which has a card that can stream video. WebRTC should (in theory) be lower-latency than HLS:
