Hello,

 

I am also interested in this topic. Did you manage to use a DVR? If so, which DVR did you used?

 

Regards,

Eugenio

I think this depends on the manufacturer and whether your DVR has an accessible API. In my case Dahua firmware upgrade removed basic authentication from the cameras, so I am unable to use them with Fibaro. However, I was able to roll back the upgrade on DVR and I am using it instead of cameras now. It works slower though.

Hi ROS 

 

How did you get that integration to work ? I am really interested.

You need to know the addresses of the the MPEG streams from your DVR (Please look for the API documentation for your DVR).

Once you know the URLs - just add those as individual cameras.
