Integrating Eufy Doorbell Camera with Home Assistant
The steps are based on the https://github.com/fuatakgun/eufy_security. I am using HA version 2021.12.8 with OS version 7.0.
Let’s go through the following steps.
Step 1. Install Eufy Security Add On
Go to Configuration > Add-ons, Backup & Supervisor and at Add-ons tab click Add On Store.
Click Menu and select Repositories.
Add custom repository URL: https://github.com/fuatakgun/eufy_security_addon
Check if you can see Eufy Security WS Addon.
Cick on Eufy Security WS Addon, install it and go to the Configuration tab and fill in the Username, Password, Country (2 digit) and port number (3000). I need to use other port number since port 3000 is already being used for other purpose and save it. It also advised by the author, that you need to create a new account and share your cameras from main account to new account and use it in the HA.
Go to Log tab and validate that you are connected.
Step 2. Install RTSP Simple Server Add On
Go back again to Add-ons Store again and add the custom repository URL https://github.com/fuatakgun/rtsp_simple_serve.
Check if you can see the add on.
Click that add on and install it. Don’t change any default setting in the Configuration tab and start it.
Go the Log tab and check the log. It should be similar like my log below.
Step 3. Install Eufy Security Integration
Go to HACS (install here if you don’t have that) and install the Eufy Security integration.
Search for eufy and download it.
Once you have downloaded, go to Terminal and check if it is there under /root/config/custom_components. Then restart the HA.
Once the HA is restarted, go to Configuration > Devices and Services.
Click Add Integration and search for eufy.
Enter the Host IP Address: localhost and port: 3000 (for my case is 3001) and click Submit.
You will be shown similar image screenshot.
And that’s the all that we need to do for the basic setup.
