After a quick look through the existing API, I’m pretty sure this doesn’t exist, but what would be amazing is the following:
An API where I can write/update a message that displays on my cameras stream. Think like a timestamp but could be used for other things such as temperature, or custom messages.
In my case we monitor our special-needs sons overnight and they have oximeters that output their oxygen/heart rate levels. Some nights have have help but I don’t think they are responding to their dropping oxygen levels. It’s impossible to know though. I can capture that through a little computer I have in their bedroom that’s connected to the internet. If I could write that to an API that would overlay the text onto the feed it would be incredible. Instead I’m going to try and construct some low-tech way of doing it by having a little LCD screen off to the side of something, which is kind of unfortunate because it will be costly, ugly, and distracting to the sleeping children, who try to grab and play with everything.
But yeah, I think an API like this would be really neat and I can see a lot of other applications for it. Pretty please?
