Wyze Cam Setup question - RTSP Entity ID

Trying to setup a wizen cam and I followed any docs I can find, most are over a year old but I have it to the point where I have a entity listed I created and I get this error:

This entity (“camera.grow_cam”) does not have a unique ID, therefore its settings cannot be managed from the UI.

Here is what’s in my config:ffmpeg:


  • platform: ffmpeg
    name: Grow Cam
    input: -rtsp_transport http -i rtsp://user:[email protected]_1/live
    extra_arguments: -pred 1 -q:v 2

I have this in my Customize folder
camera.Grow Cam:
supported_features: 2
customize: !include customize.yaml

Any help would be appreciated.

Try this below is what i use for Wyze cam.

I ended up gettin git to work with the file I posted… Im not sure what changed to make it work though… Thanks for reply

What do those extra arguments do? sorry for asking without having time to look it up myself.

Do be honest I have no idea, I been reading all the forum threads I could find and was trying them all.

  - platform: ffmpeg
    name: Basement Sump Pit
    input: -rtsp_transport udp -i rtsp:/UN:[email protected]/live

Is my config where
UN is the username
PW is the password
IP is the IP Address
