Hey all,

 

 

 

Was wondering as the father didnt get a smart garage door opener (As i told him to) but was really let down when i said, "Dad this is not what you were after"

Can we get an all in one IP Camera system that you can add a little garage door opener module. Effectively what im after is the ability to have an IP device at the garage door opener that will trigger it to open or close with in the same remote app for the security. 
If there isnt an all in one app, any suggestions on what i could use?
I noticed that the Dahua app gDMSS Lite has the front door opener feature and a few others, so maybe its possible with a Dahua camera system?

 

 

 

 

Cheers

Do you have a burglar alarm?

 

We have a paradox and the same remote operates the garage doors.  We also have it connected via the IP150 which allows use of their almost buggy app, but via the app you can see the cameras and remotley arm/disarm, see events. The PGM function on the app is a but doge so havent used it to control garage doors. 

 

Most good burglar alarms allow intergration with garage doors.

Some cameras have a remote alarm, but I thought it was an input.  There must be some that have an output as well, which with a relay etc could open/close the door.

 

 

 

EDIT: Maybe this helps: https://www.unifore.net/ip-video-surveillance/ip-camera-installation-how-to-use-dahua-alarm-input-output.html

 

 

 

Regarding the option you found on iDSS, maybe if you get no answers, head over to ipcamtalk.com and ask there.  There's some pretty knowledgable people there with the dahua products.

Do you want it to work from outside the house -i.e. over internet, as obviously that will change the recommendations a bit.

 

I do it using the Envisalink module for DSC or Honeywell alarms, and a tiny relay on one of the programmable outputs to control the door; then a open/close sensor to one of the alarm zones to monitor open/close status. They appear to have some sort of Foscam camera integration.

 

Otherwise, it looks like Ring has some sort of integration with WeMo, so I'm guessing you could do the garage door opener with WeMo Maker relay and pretty easily switch to control that from the Ring app

hey all,

 

 

 

Thanks for the info, He does indeed want to open it via the internet. We have a cat6 sitting there I can plug an IP device into ontop of the garage door.
He doesnt have an alarm system unfortunately. The paradox app is a little buggy, Had a few headaches with that before haha..
I see that WeMo looks good, Just would like something POE or powered with Ethernet but i can make it work!!.

Will see what i can find over the weekend and post back here if i do find something or get a WeMo.

Cheers

It's not contained within a camera app, but I can confirm the opengarage door opener works well if you end up with a standalone option - I have it integrated within my homeassistant setup, so can of course view cameras and control everything from within one app, but that might be overkill :)

There's about 40 RaspberryPi fixes for this.

I use EnvisaLink http://www.eyezon.com/?page_id=176 hooked into our DSC alarm.   The Envisalink and their connect2go service gives remote access to the alarm.  Then I have the alarm hooked up to one of the PGM modules which allows me to open the garage door remotely or from the alarm control panel.
