I just installed a ring outdoor camera and am now trying to trigger events in my smarthome when the camera detects any motion. Unfortunatelly I don't get it working.
iobroker does not send motions that are or are not detected to node-red and the node-red adapters that I found also do not send events. After searching arround for a bit I also found the hint that I shall hook into alexa - but the alexa endpoint just gives me the information that the device is present - no "motion" endpoint that I could listen.
Has anybody got that working and can help how to set it up?
Your topic title is 'Ring doorbell camera motion event?'
...whilst your opening line says;
Is it a Ring doorbell, or is it a Ring outdoor camera?
Have a look at this topic which I created some time ago (and still works today) for obtaining alerts from the Ring doorbell.
Both devices I suspect will use a similar 'Alexa' background function.
Hi @Paul-Reed ,
it is indeed an outdoor camera. I used the "Ring Doorbell" line to identify the brand. I guess just "Ring" would have been enough.
I'll check the link you provided...
Allright, I checked the tut you provided and followed all the steps as mentioned. Sounds absolutely good and understandable. I had no trouble wo walk all the steps through.
I still do not receive any event in node-red.
I did the same already before in order to debug. I created a routine and requested the camera to send me a push notification when a motion is detected - all out of the alexa app, so no "integration" issue can come up. I also do not receive these push notifications.
Something is wrong over here...
The camera itself records fine and I can see the push notifications from ring itself on my phone. But the camera does not talk to anyone else...
