Consumer level security cameras with C4 drivers?

Recommended Posts

Hi

Are there any consumer-level security cameras (like Nest, Arlo, TP-Link, Ring, etc.) that have Control4 drivers that would allow touchscreen and Navigator access of the feeds?

Thanks

Most all of those are cloud-based so no current integration. You might be able to do amcrest since those are onvif but I haven't tried any of their Wi-Fi cameras

Chowmain just released a $50.00 driver they claim will work with Cameras from Wyze, etc.  The driver is at the link below, if you have not seen it already.

One note, u need to reflash the cams with mod firmware to work with this driver, not a rocket silence job but it’s not out-of-box

Thanks for the clarification! 

Amr, have you looked into using this driver?  I've asked my dealer to buy it for me, and hope to hear back in a day or two.  I have a Wyze Pan camera and am interested to see how it will function.

Not yet, planning to get some Xiaomi cams, reflash them and test, I bit you it will work flawlessly.  I had a lot of good results with these Mod units, e.g. Xiaomi Desk Lamps, Sonoff, Shelly’s, etc. All working locally on my network and very stable, cost is really nothing.

Got the Wyze camera with custom firmware, along with Chowmain C4 driver, works great and PTZ functions as well.  One thing I'm trying to figure out, would be external access to camera feeds when I'm not at the house.  Aside from that, I can see live footage from any C4 touchscreens, as well as through app locally connected WiFi.

Access through C4 app itself? Either with the $100 4Sight annual or by setting up a VPN to your home and connect the app to your network, or use BlueIris to connect to you cams remotely.
