Send camera snapshot notification with Frenck’s doorbell

Hi
Based on Frenck’s doorbell and Vorion’s motion detection blueprint, i combined both and created this blueprint:
Open your Home Assistant instance and show the blueprint import dialog with a specific blueprint pre-filled.

or use copy/paste:

blueprint:
  name: Send a camera snapshot when doorbell was activated
  description: 'This automation blueprint creates a camera snapshot when the doorbell was activated and
    sends a notification to your phone with the picture.
    '
  domain: automation
  input:
    binary_sensor:
      name: Push button
      description:
        Entity representing a physical push button (which restores its position
        when released). It must emit a square signal on press.
        This automation is triggered by its falling edge.
      selector:
        entity:
          domain: binary_sensor
          integration: esphome
    camera:
      name: Camera

          domain: camera
    notify_device:
      name: Device to notify

        notifications

    is_ios:
      name: Is it an iOS device?
      description: Toggle if your selected device runs iOS, default is Android
      selector:
        boolean: {}
      default: false
    notification_title:

      default: The Doorbell was activated!
    notification_message:
      name: Notification message (Optional)
      description: 'Default: "{{ binary_sensor_name }} was activated!"'
      default: '{{ binary_sensor_name }} was activated!'
    delay:
      name: Delay (Optional)

I’ve used this camera:

And works like a charm…


(sorry for the mess…doing some rebuilding atm)

Hi, would it please be possible to add a local .mp3 or .wav file streamed to a google speaker/Alexa on button press?

I guess so…
should be a combination of mine with this one?

Since I already combined 2, feel free to combine 3 :wink:

Hi,

is it possible to make it work with other notification service?

I have 2 HA (home and office) and on Android i can have only one application (i have the option to run the same app 2 times, but android Auto stops to work).
