3rd Party Cameras

A wide variety of 3rd party cameras can be added on the the Elumicate Smart Vision Network. As long as the camera's feed can be accessed externally, the camera can be used for data capture.
Camera streams can be added on through the mobile app by downloading from the app store, or web app by visiting https://app.elumicate.com and by clicking add a camera once logged in. Many existing cameras support streaming by RTSP links. In order to onboard your camera by RTSP streaming link, you should first setup public access to your camera's feed by following the steps described in Finding video access link. Once you have the proper access link url, follow the steps below to onboard your camera.
Adding your camera stream to the Elumicate network is a simple process that can be done in a few easy steps:

CCTV or non RTSP cameras

3rd party applications may allow non RTSP cameras to be streamed through youtube, RTSP, or other methods.
There are numerous software programs, apps, and systems for streaming network camera feeds available on the market today. If your camera does not natively perform RTSP streaming, these products can be used to stream through either RTSP or RTMP (youtube feed for example). The method used to produce the RTSP or RTMP stream are not important to the Elumicate network. A quality stream signal is what matters.
