Migrating from Vera: How to connect Vera VistaCam 1101 (Sercomm OC452)

Migrating from Vera:
How do I connect my cams - Vera VistaCam 1101 (Sercomm OC452).
Vera app is missing …Why? I assumed Athom wanted us Vera users to move to Homey.

  • Homey=>Virtual IP Camera: Not working
  • ONVIF=>Camera: Not working

If you can’t find an app to support your device(s), it’s very likely you won’t be able to use them with Homey. As far as camera’s are concerned, Homey only works with camera’s that have HTTP access for snapshots (no streams).

aha, snapshot URL only. Thanks!
Homey => Virtual IP Camera: http://user:pw@ip/img/snapshot.cgi?size=2
That worked just fine.

(this helped https://www.ispyconnect.com/man.aspx?n=VISTACam# )

But this will not give me any motion detection …so I just have to wait until Athom can fix the support section so that I can send in a feature request.
If they want to get the Vera users, they need to support the Vera cams.

I didn’t know the support section was broken? In any case, you can ask Athom to add new device support through this form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScPKV_joWXvvtACKuOdvDILbAzipk8mer0H4ZfOpJEthg-ibA/viewform

There’s also a thread on the forum here where you can ask third party developers to develop a specific app for your brand.
