Re: Zigbee and dect...

No I have not. I have read that folks are updating firmware on Tuya devices now. You can do this via WiFi but my preference is to JTAG and use a serial cable.

Running HUE emulation on the Espurna firmware updated devices and doing what I can do with Home Assistant and Homeseer.

Re: Zigbee and dect...

Due to WAF have kept the larger style Panasonic phones. That and keep cell phones off while in the house and route calls here using GV. Back up backup phon...

That and have a Zigbee serial module connected to my OmniPro 2 plus tinkered a bit with the Samsung Smarthubs. Lately have been tinkering with Sonoff basics modded with Espurna firm...

Re: IP Camera monitoring on Win 10 Joggler

Yeah the newer smart cam chips all talk to the cloud and are always connected to the iOS or Android app. The test camera boards have a switch to shut off the cloud connection.

Re: Zigbee and dect...

There are heat sinks I think over the chips... Andy was able to talk to the Zigbee chip and or DECT chip via a terminal (or remotely via SSH)...it is documented here somewhere... It is a first generation energy Zigbee chip... When I started to look for DECT stuff noticed most of it has been removed ...

Re: IP Camera monitoring on Win 10 Joggler

Easier than running a command line script to run an instance of one camera. You are doing the same with python on KODI anyhow...

Re: Ubuntu Bionic for OpenFrame

VLC RTSP streaming is working fine here. Testing it with new 3MP Doorbell Cam (Hikvision). It is a 180 lens and a nice view but tiny even though it uses the entire Joggler screen.

Tried initially to install the LUbuntu core desktop and it was a tad too big.

Next will install Squeezeplayer.

Re: Ubuntu Bionic for OpenFrame

Thank you xxx.

Will try doing RTSP streaming via VLC on your build.

Been doing local RTSP streaming now on my Amazon Show. Works great.

IE: "Alexa show me the front door" or "Alexa show me the driveway" et al.

Re: IP Camera monitoring on Win 10 Joggler

Actually paying $25 per open camera board which are 4 MP and 5 MP. The cheaper 1 MP boards are being used in the "el cheapo" smart cams today. Same company sells 10-20 MP camera boards that can be utilized for face detection with software. Ideally next generation video doorbells with have the face d...
