API key

Set your API key

In Frigate, you can use an environment variable or a docker secret named PLUS_API_KEY to enable the SEND TO FRIGATE+ buttons on the events page. Home Assistant Addon users can set it under Settings > Addons > Frigate NVR > Configuration > Options (be sure to toggle the "Show unused optional configuration options" switch).


You cannot use the environment_vars section of your configuration file to set this environment variable.

Submit examples

Once your API key is configured, you can submit examples directly from the events page in Frigate using the SEND TO FRIGATE+ button.


Snapshots must be enabled to be able to submit examples to Frigate+

Use Models

Models available in Frigate+ can be used with a special model path. No other information needs to be configured for Frigate+ models because it fetches the remaining config from Frigate+ automatically.

path: plus://e63b7345cc83a84ed79dedfc99c16616

Models are downloaded into the /config/model_cache folder and only downloaded if needed.

If needed, you can override the labelmap for Frigate+ models. This is not recommended as renaming labels will break the Submit to Frigate+ feature if the labels are not available in Frigate+.
