MQTT Camera

The mqtt camera platform allows you to integrate the content of an image file sent through MQTT into Home Assistant as a camera. Every time a message under the topic in the configuration is received, the image displayed in Home Assistant will also be updated.

This can be used with an application or a service capable of sending images through MQTT, for example Zanzito.

To enable this camera in your installation, add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
  - platform: mqtt
    topic: zanzito/shared_locations/my-device

Configuration variables:

  • topic (Required): MQTT topic to subscribe to.
  • name (Optional): Name of the camera
