@jotz similar questions have been swirling around concerning adding NAS storage to offload video clips. (which definitely would be easier to dump video files onto VS. taking the SD card out all the time). “According to Engadget, a firmware update in March will add IFTTT support and compatibility with Amazon’s Echo Show and Echo Spot devices for looking in on your camera feeds.” This is from the verge article
I too have a QNAP TVS-873e and would like to add these cameras for monitoring and recording to my NAS. I have figured out it is a Honeywell camera inside but the model is missing from surveillance station when I try and add it. I also need to figure out the username and password to connect to the stream. If anyone has made any progress on this it would be helpful.
Here’s what I have so far. I haven’t done much research on this but something is something.
I installed the beta software from Wyze Labs that includes the feature of RTSP. Once enabled and a url generated, I used that url to live stream on VLC video player, click record and records to my mapped network drive which is to my qnap nas. Down side to this is that it records what is playing live so the video isn’t compressed to be much smaller like Wyze native software does so it has taken about 5 gigs for just a few hours of video. Another down side is that this would split the videos into fragments or days so leaving it recording could not only consume all the storage in no time, but it will also be one continuous video for however many days it can record and won’t overwrite order.
Again, this is a start and something nice to play with but some kind of support for it would be nice. From what I read and seen on youtube, Synology NAS does have this kind of support for their devices. Lets hope it makes it to QNAP as I can’t afford to change platforms for this only feature.
If you know how let me know.
I installed surveillance station but it does not have wyze as a supported camera. didn’t find a way around it. And of course there’s no other surveillance software on the QNAP library .
