    Who Have Integrated Cameras with HS4?

    We're curious to know how people are integrating cameras with HS4. For my own part, I'm using the built-in camera features of HS4 for watching streams and for recording. Who else is using this feature? Who is using a different option (like Blue Iris)?

    Blue Iris homie here. The plugin still works for the most part. I used MQTT and Codeproject.AI for reading and reporting license plates.

        I'm have cameras integrated with HS4 but mainly only for viewing live remotely via my iPhone apps like HSBuddy. For recording I use QVRPro that comes with my QNAP NAS. I can also use the QVR iPhone app to view recordings and live feed. I wish the snapshot, event and other functionality was more seamless with the Cameras page/system and didn't require the Netcam plugin which apparently has several issues, AKNetCam comes to mind. I can see several interesting use cases for a more robust embedded camera application.

          Blue Iris user. I use BI to trigger events in HS4.

                    I have the cameras configured and once the new dashboard comes out, I would likely incorporate them into that for viewing. I am no longer recording the cameras and currently watch any feed via a Graphana dashboard.

                      Have cameras setup in both but mainly use BI for cameras. Amcrest & Foscam cameras.

                        I have a bunch of regular RTSP cameras and am hopeful we can embed them in the new dashboards.

                          Yes, the new dashboards will display live feeds.

                            Blue Iris all the way, it communicates just fine with HS4.
                            I'm using built in AI in my Dahua cameras to trigger some outdoor lights in HS4 via BI.
                            Out of curiosity I have tried to use HS4 with my cameras, but found it to be very, very clunky. So I gave up.
                            Don't let friends buy Reolink trash.

                              My HS4 feature to add my Hikvision test cameras always have seen the cameras but I have never been to save the cameras. I used to be able to do this using Jon00 links.
