I purchased the ubiquiti camera after reading on the forum about ease of integrating with HA. Trying to use Picture Entity Card. Not sure if this is the correct card to use. Can’t see still picture or stream of camera through HA. Everything works on the Ubiquiti side, ie: NVR and logging into camera from browser.
Home Assistant 0.104.3
Here is the config settings
- platform: uvc
key: key provided by ubiquiti NVR
password: password for camera
model_name: UVC G3 Flex
The camera entity is there “camera.greatroom”
For Lovelace “picture entity” is correct with "camera.greatroom as “entity_id”. If using Lovelace Web Editor this should be easy.
On a side note, I use iframe and just display the NVR’s(motioneye for me) full webpage.
Libe views load faster and allow view recordings in HA. You can use “view only” user vs “admin” as well. For notifications you may just make rtsp stream active from unifi nvr…
You may also try setting “camera_image” for picture entity card to “camera.greatroom” also to see if this make some change
no luck with ubiquiti camera. all I get on lovelace card is blank card. Maybe I should try a different camera? Any recommendation for an indoor POE camera?
Returned the ubiquiti camera. Went with a reolink camera and can see the live video on the lovelace UI. Reolink camera was half the price and better resolution. win win
This is why I dumped unifi cameras. Lowlight/night performance was horrible also.
Motioneye works well as NVR, although images load slow. I used doods integration for image analysis and have that save into motioneye folders for review.
