RTSP protocol for Ring devices?

Ive got 5 wyze cams going now with blue iris. Local internal storage! Yeah! I’ve tapped into all of them with rtsp. It’d be really cool to see who’s at the doorbell with blue iris too!!

Have you had luck long term with Wyze and RTSP with Blue Iris? I kept having them disconnect.

The cams with the weaker wifi signal do drop there connections. I have upgraded my wifi network with a medium duty router and that helped. I then took my old linksys router and used that as an extender. That helped… I do have plans to expand my wifi network with a tp-link extender. RING/AMAZON - LET ME TAP INTO THE RSTP STREAM WITH MY SYSTEM PLEASE!!!

Ok thanks. It’s weird mine would drop connection every couple of hours. It wasn’t the wifi signal though. I have terrific signal throughout my house. Blue Iris would have an error and wouldn’t be able to stream the wyze again until I rebooted the camera. I spoke to wyze and basically they just said their rtsp isn’t recommended and isn’t supported and I should flash back to the original firmware.

Mine have been rock solid, connection wise. what version of BI and firmware on Wyze ?

I think Ring doesn’t want to loose market share, those clients hooking up their Ring cameras to their own NVR’s and not paying Ring for their ‘cloud’ storage.

Probably the best to do is educate potential buyers of the shortcomings of Rings, sterling them somewhere else; that’s the only pressure Ring will listen to.

:wink:

Make the RTSP stream available for those that pay the monthly fee. Problem solved of lost revenue.

I am not buying any further Ring devices until this happens. There are too many other options out there that allow flexibility.

I agree. Makes zero sense. When they already don’t worry about our security. At least let us have something. I already got rid of my ring doorbell and switched to nest (since they do have an rtsp feed that can be used). I only have the security camera and security system left now.

My thoughts exactly.

Agreed. In fact I’ve been advising people against Ring ever since the first (and only) Ring camera I purchased. I was in disbelief that such an expensive product – relative to generic onvif cameras – actively seek to block you from accessing your camera stream outside of their cloud. If Amazon open up RTSP I will look at purchasing further products and revisit my opinion about them, until then I will vote with my wallet… elsewhere.

I might even get rid of my current Ring Doorbell and buy another brand if RTSP support isn’t added.

I believe the Doorbird doorbell is one of the very few ones if only one that supports RTSP.

There was no mention of RTSP on the above page but I checked the manufacturers own site and yes it does seem Amcrest do support RTSP.

Any movement on this? The idea of even opening it jus to subscribers would be acceptable at this point.

Hey @Moonzi. No updates at this time on if and when RTSP protocols for Ring devices will be allowed. I apologize that I have no updates, but it is still not a feature we allow with the Ring devices. If we do allow this in the future, I will make sure to update this thread here, as it is our “master thread” per say of our neighbors that want this integration. :slight_smile:

This is unfortunate, there are a lot of features I do like with Ring but unfortunately with my home automation project I have realized that the lack of RTSP with ring products I cannot fully tie them in with my automation’s and the other 6 cameras I just put in. It is sadly time for me to cut my losses and sell off my 3 Ring cameras, for the average non-technical person they are great but you should have some forethought and accomdations for the powerusers too and I just do not see that over the past year watching this and threads alike.

Adding my name to the displeasure here. The lack of interoperability came forefront for me when I got rid of my Echo devices. Ring won’t work with anything else.

No app for My android TV

no way to access streams at all outside their app.

For the price this is ridiculous.

I’ll be cancelling my subscription and doing a replace and expand with another product for sure if nothing changes quickly. 100% cannot recommend this to anyone.
