Using remote RTSP streams
You can use your own RTSP streams with the cloud service. Because of RTSP stream architecture, our cloud services have to initialize the inbound connection.
As long as your network allows inbound connection, you can use remote RTSP streams.
Using remote RTSP streams may cause connection drops and high latency depending on the remote site's internet speed.
  • You need an RTSP-capable camera and administrative-level access to your router. Please refer to the documentations to enable RTSP support on the Wyze cam v2 and v3. Please consult the official documentation if you are using other brands.
  • After enabling and acquiring your RTSP credentials and camera URL, please create the necessary port forwarding rules on your router.
  • Create two NAT rules on your firewall. You must redirect any incoming packages to port 554 (UDP and TCP) to your RTSP camera.
  • Here is an example configuration on a TP-Link Router:
The Camera's local IP is 192.168.1.102. 554 is the RTSP port
  • After that, you need to create/edit a sensor on Ouva Dashboard and put your camera URL. Please advise: You need to put your external IP address instead of the local camera IP.
  • We support authentication on RTSP streams.
  • RTSP stream has to be 1920x1080 or 1600x1200 for optimal accuracy. You can lower the FPS as low as 4. Please specify the correct resolution when creating a new sensor.
Enter the URI on the sensor edit page and then assign a patient to test your stream. You can enable/disable your NAT rule before/after your tests.
