    I have not been able to get the third party plugin to work properly. Instead, I use a combination of the HS3 Kodi plugin and the RTSP streaming capabilities of my Hikvision camera to do a full screen live stream when the doorbell rings (for example). Here's the event:

    The FrontDoorOut.strm file contains this line only:
    rtsp://username : password@CameraIPAddress:554/cam/realmonitor?channel=1&subtype=0?tcp

    If I'm watching a show on Kodi and the doorbell rings, the show is stopped and the live RTSP stream from the front door camera is shown.

    The doorbell integration to HS3 is done through a Fortrezz Mimolite and is documented here:

    Does the 'back' button on the remote take you back to the show you were watching?

      No. The currently running show is stopped not paused before the cam stream starts. So, going back to the show means starting the show again which resumes where it left off.

        Did some searching yesterday and looks like we can use Kodi Plugin called
        Surveillance Room
        https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=240768

        it has 'preview windows' that are overlays and will not stop the video playing in the background. And you can trigger 1 or multiples.

        I'm going to try this when I get time next week.

          Did this work out for you?

            It only works with Foscam cameras. Others can be used but the plugin then can't be triggered by motion.
