The Camera widget in myGrenton allows you to view of IP camera stream.


In order for the widget to work correctly, it is necessary to use the RTSP video stream and broadcast in the MJPG codec. Detailed information on the configuration of a given camera is specified individually in the instructions for the device.


Camera models that have been tested by us can be found at:

Below is an example of how to get an RTSP stream for following cameras:

  • Dahua IP CAMERA Model: IPC-HFW2531S-S-0280B-S2 
  • Hikvision NETWORK CAMERA Model: DS-2CD1043G0-I

In order to make the camera image to be visible outside your home network, there is a need to access the camera in an external network. This can be done in two ways:


- obtaining a static external IP address from the Internet Service Provider and port forwarding on the router,


- activation of DDNS service and port forwarding on the router.
