By enabling RTSP (Real Time Streaming Protocol) on a specific eufyCam, the system will save all its recorded videos to your compatible NAS (Network-attached Storage).
- The RTSP function on eufyCam only works with NAS that supports RTSP protocol. In this FAQ, we will be using Synology NAS as example.
- This function is now available on Android App v1.1.1 and iOS App v1.1.1.
- When user is watching live or the camera detects event and starts recording, the video will stream and save to the NAS.
- When the camera is in standby status, no video streams to the NAS.
Step 1: Install Surveillance Station on the NAS
On your NAS, log into the NAS management page.
Go to Package Center, search “surveillance station” and install.
Once installed, the Surveillance Station can be found in the Main Menu.
Note: the software and package in different NAS may vary.
Step 2: Enable RTSP on eufyCam
Go to Eufy Security App - a specific camera that you want to stream to - Camera Settings - NAS(RTSP Stream).
Enable NAS RTSP Stream.
Write down the RTSP stream link for later use.
Step 3: Add eufyCam to the NAS
Open the Surveillance Station.
Find and click IP Camera on the left side.
On the new window, go to Add -> Add Camera.
Select Quick Setup.
Name: give a name to this camera
Brand: choose User Define
Type: keep Streaming - RTSP
Path: input RTSP link indicated on the App.
Updated on 2019-01-11: Trigger the camera (you may walk or wave hand in front of the camera), so that it wakes up and push stream to NAS.
Then it will pass the Test Connection. If it fails, please disable and re-enable the “RTSP Stream” button on eufy Security App > Camera Settings > NAS (RTSP).
The captured videos can be found in Surveillance Station - Recording.
