I have an old Xiaomi Yi Home Camera 720p, which is a 12CN version, so it’s a few years old. I don’t remember when I did install a special firmware to it, so I don’t know what is installed. But I am able to use the camera from the Mi Home app, and I can also visit the camera IP in a browser and see all the files on the SD-card.
I am also able to view RTSP if I visit: rtsp://myipadress/ch0_0.h264
And I have tried it with https://home-assistant.io/components/camera.yi/ which displays the latest video-file where there is movement (not a live stream). Is it supposed to show a live stream?
My question is, is it possible to secure this camera somehow? I can access the RTSP stream via the IP without any username/password, I can also visit the IP-adress in a browser and browse all the video-files, without a username/password.
So how have you solved this? Even if it is only available internally I don’t want it to be this unprotected.
I can also access it via telnet, root and password 1234qwer.
One last thing. To get the timestamp working (the one watermarked in the video) I had to edit a file called TZ which is found in /etc/ on the camera. I changed this from GMT +0 to GMT +7 which gives me the correct time. But when daylight saving time comes in spring again, this will be 1 hour off. Is there a way to get this to update automatically?
