  • For now there is a synology security station app that can connects cams to homey and you can send snapshot images tru a telegram message if im not mistaken

    Google for the brand and type of your camera to see if it has a snapshot URL. For example, all Foscam IP cameras are shown at

    If your camera does not support this, you can make screenshots if you add the camera to a Synology NAS with Surveillance Station, as @mruiter mentioned. The app can be found here:
