MQTT Topic: Alarm Schedule
Firmware Update
Full HD Series

INSTAR MQTT: Topic Added

Added missing topic for the alarm schedule:

Your camera has 2 alarm schedules - one that determines whether the alarm detection is armed or not and a back-up schedule of the setting you set. This way it is possible to manipulate the alarm schedule for a short time ("Snooze" function) and then restore it from the BackUp. The value displayed in the WebUI is always the BackUp schedule. If you make changes to the schedule via the MQTT API, you should accordingly always switch both schedules at the same time. This is now possible with the following topics:


  • alarm/schedule/dayoftheweek
  • alarm/schedule/dayoftheweek/webui

The latter is intended for the back-up schedule, which is used, among other things, for the display in the WebUI. And the value dayoftheweek is for the day of the week you want to adjust: monday, tuesday, wednesday, usw..

INSTAR MQTT

Make your camera the heart of your smart home

Using the MQTT interface of your INSTAR Full HD cameras you can connect them to an existing smarthome system (Home Assistant, OpenHAB, Node-RED, Athom Homey, Homematic, ioBroker, Loxone, homee) can be added. Or even make it the main broker for your MQTT sensors. MQTT allows you to automate ALL functions of your camera and link them to other services in your smarthome.

INSTAR IFTTT Applets

Control your camera via the IFTTT online service

On the IFTTT platform, we provided a service called INSTAR. The INSTAR applets provide you with the ability to control some settings of your INSTAR camera or INSTAR Cloud with IFTTT. You can connect INSTAR with triggers for location (Geo Location) and date & time, send notifications and much more. For example, you can connect INSTAR applets to the IFTTT location service and automatically disable the alarm when you arrive home. You can also use the INSTAR applets to create your own automation and connect them to other third-party applets.
