MQTT

by 3Dave » Mon May 06, 2019 8:38 pm

A very useful feature to add would be MQTT messaging (with specified server ip address, and topic).
This would enable Sighthound rules to trigger an MQTT message to home automation systems etc to take some action when people or cars were detected.
An example would be to turn on a light if people were detected entering a specified area at night (using the inbuilt scheduling capability).

I would also like this functionality.
I currently use Home Assistant (Hassio) and MQTT ability would open up a lot of potential.

Re: MQTT - HTTP CGI SUPPORT

by Jose » Sat May 11, 2019 5:13 pm

Hello,

We are realy agree with this request and we also would like to add the support of HTTP protocole:

For example, we can imagine using the HTTP protocol to communicate or to trigger some action or to control equipment inside the home, when Sighthound Video has detected or recognized a person or object;
For example, if Sighthound has detected a person intering the home, we can instruct Sighthound to send an http command in order to Switch the light ON/OFF/ or Dimming (http://lightonoff.php); to turn the TV ON, to play a preferred music and Scene, to Welcome the person home to control any IP network device using HTTP Protocole.
