Monitoring simple network devices like network cameras?

Caution! New to Grafana

Trying to understand how to monitor something simple like a network camera for uptime and open ports. If you have a device you cant install an agent on then what is a good option to use?

I think this answer from another thread applies equally here: Router/switch-Interface utilization - #2 by pooh

So I get that Grafana just displays what you send it but I am not sure what would be used as the data source/engine which would do the checking of devices and recording their states for display on a dashboard.

Nagios does all that in one step as well as having a number of wizards to go out and classify nodes and grab data from them. I guess I am looking for a Nagios replacement and not sure what path others have found works.
