Detect people in camera images using Sighthound Cloud. The Sighthound Developer tier (free for non-commercial use) allows 5000 images to be processed per month. If you need more processing per month you will need to sign up for a production account (i.e., a Basic or Pro account).
This integration adds an image processing entity where the state of the entity is the number of people detected in an image. For each person detected, an
sighthound.person_detected event is fired. The event data includes the entity_id of the image processing entity firing the event, and the bounding box around the detected person.
Note that by default the component will not automatically scan images, but requires you to call the
image_processing.scan service e.g., using an automation triggered by motion.
To enable this platform in your installation, add the following to your
# Example configuration.yaml entry image_processing: - platform: sighthound api_key: some_key source: - entity_id: camera.my_cam
Your Sighthound Cloud API key.
