Definitely would be great - and with the new additions announced today around facial recognition and being able to define activity zones for Homekit Secure Video, it would be amazing to use small, cheap cameras for the raw feed and have HSV do the processing on the homekit hub
The more I think about it, the more excited I am for the potential of this feature. Up until now, I’ve been trying a number of the custom components that use some form of AI to detect images (e.g. DOODS). From these triggers, I then call a series of automation steps to decide whether to record, record, then send me a notification. I have tried to build sones sort of NVR interface in Lovelace, but cannot get anything to look/work well.
For those of us in both the HA and Apple ecosystem, this has huge potential. Leverage HA to push “generic” IP came to HomeKit, then have HomeKit act as a easy-to-use NVR.
I second this. This is the number one feature I am waiting for! I have everything integrated into home assistant and use it as my primary UI even though I have HomeKit running as well. The only thing missing are the cameras as I don’t want to lose hksv functionality!
Thanks for sharing your workaround! How did you manage to get a stream in both apple homekit and home assistant? Did you add the homebridge bridge in home assistant and expose the camera through home assistant? I guess you would loose the hksv feature?
