Amcrest 8mp cameras
Hi, does anyone know if either of these cameras can be made alexa compatible with Monocle?
I prefer the turret or dome to the bullet that’s compatible. If anyone has advice on similar competitor cameras that would be appreciated as well.

The camera is only running 1920x1080, and the RTSP link is actually coming from the NVR that’s recording the camera (NV-4108HS), but it displays fine on my Alexa gear. I do have the Gateway running.
Awesome, thank you much. I’m a newbie to this space and am trying to reduce the odds that my efforts are a complete failure.
@travisb1 In general, the Amcrest cameras and NVRs work well with Alexa. The Monocle Gateway is required for some Alexa devices; it may not be for all.
1920x1080 is known to work. Higher resolutions may not work; I haven’t tried.
