The difference between version 1 and the current is: assistance for ha, different location for settings file, different location for images and better 16:9 support. In your case it looks like the settings file or the standards images get lost. Can you upgrade to a newer version of toon firmware? Can you also check the mnt/data//tsc folder? It should contain the file doorcam_userSettings.json with the correct settings.


Oepi-loepi,

Thats the strange part, since I'm not always at home when the doorbell rings I haven't paid attention since when it went wrong, I haven't done anything (no upgrades or extra apps installed or what so ever).

I'm running my Toon2 on the latest firmware (not BETA) which is 5.18.8.
I checked the folder mnt/data/tsc for the file doorcam_userSettings.json and the file is on this location.
In the file the following:
Code: Select all
{"camURL":"http://IP-ADDRESS_DOORCAM:PORT_DOORCAM/CGIProxy.fcgi?cmd=snapPicture2&usr=USERNAME&pwd=PASSWORD","domURL":"http://IP-ADDRESS_DOMOTICZ:PORT_DOMOTICZ","entity_id":"entity_id","haURL":"http://192.168.10.18:8123","idx":"12","tmpForceMode":"No","tmpdomMode":"Domoticz","token":"haToken","var":"ShowDoorCamToon"}


I don't have/use "ha".


5.18.8 is not the last version, that is 5.33.9 for Toon2.

Thanks mAiden, strange... I had no notification about this firmware upgrade.
I have upgraded now to 5.33.9.
Since this upgrade the app works fine now.

Thanks for the alert about the new firmware.

Some of the images have moved to the TSC resource internals. These resources are upgrades with the Toon's upgrades.

Compliments for this App. Really handy!
My doorbell was already connected to a Domoticz switch so the integration with Doorcam was easy. Image appears after bell rings. Fantastic!

Reading the api it would be possible to integrate the api into toon. However: it is not working with the doorcam app at at this moment. To make it work it needs a lot of programming and testing. For this we will need to have our hands on such Doorbird device. It is not possibe to program an api hook in the blind and the devices are too expensive to buy for our team for testing. If someone else owns such deviCe and is able to modify my program i would be gratefull.

Hi, I was wondering, does DoorCam also support RTSP streams?

Actually it does not support any stream at all. It takes the jpg snapshot wich most camera’s support through their webinterface. Doesn’t your camera support snapshots? You can best check ispyconnect.com.

Thanks! I came across this app because I'm in the process of accessing the - cheap- Tuya doorcam that is offered by Action and others.
For people who are interested: I found an interesting development at github https://github.com/guino/BazzDoorbell and https://github.com/guino/BazzDoorbell/issues/2
They managed to access the RTSP stream of this doorcam, pretty sure that the stills can be created or accessed too. Need to learn more once a have 'root'-access to my doorcam. (I have ca 'caliber' version of this Tuya cam) When successful, I'll post results here :)

So in that case the url should be http://ipaddres:8080/cgi-bin/snap.cgi

Dat is inderdaad de optie. Maar (helaas) is die niet standaard, je krijgt die stills pas pas nadat het script snap.cgi dat guido heeft geschreven is gestart. ik zie het even niet zitten voor dat doel een programmer te gaan gebruiken en een pootje van een uart los te solderen, dus ik wacht nu op een sd kaartje dat in die deurbel past om de weg van https://github.com/guino/BazzDoorbell/issues/2. te bewandelen. Daarna even stoeien met de deurbel. Ziet er kansrijk uit.
Excuses, I answered in Dutch, see it now after typing everything. Hope it is allowed as a slip of the pen :)

Could you please send some links where to buy the doorcam? Maybe more people are interested and can help finding solutions?

I have something like this mounted behind the glass next to my door https://nl.aliexpress.com/item/40002390 ... web201603_ it is working but when ir is dark outside and the light is on inside, there is a lot of mirroring from the inside.

@oepi-loepi: Below short list of (roughly the same) doorbell cam available in The Netherlands:
Nedis Edit: Ook te koop bij Kruidvat
Caliber (this one can also activate the old fashioned mechanical chime.
Action
Picture quality is quite nice. All of them are based on the Tuya doorbell. There must be a lot more out there :)
(Not sure about privacy matters (AVG/GDPR of Tuya) This is what they say
