Imagine a local NVR designed for Home Assistant with AI object detection. Imagine no more as there is one. It is called Frigate and I’m going to demonstrate you how to setup it and how you can integrate it with Home Assistant.
Frigate is using OpenCV and Tensorflow to perform realtime object detection for your IP cameras locally. You can have Frigate as a Docker container or as Home Assistant add-on. You can use hardware acceleration (like Google Coral) or your CPU and you can use the native custom component for the Home Assistant integration.
Don’t worry if anything I said seems complicated I will guide you step-by-step trough the whole process starting right-now.
