Another month has passed and some great new features have landed in Home Assistant. This month release has been made possible by balloob, ettisan, fabaff, gyran, jamespcole, michaelarnauts, miniconfig and rmkraus.
IP Camera Support James has worked very hard to add support for IP cameras to Home Assistant which is included in this release. The initial release focusses on providing generic IP camera support. This means that any webcam that can exposes a JPEG image via a URL can be integrated.
Home Assistant will route the requests to your camera via the server allowing you to expose IP camera’s inside your network via the Home Assistant app.
