Thanks a lot, CatDude Very Happy

Wary Watcher works fine for me.

It took a long time for me to realise
Quote:
it may be necessary to restart ZoneMinder (via the console window)

This I've always overlooked before Embarassed . For me, it was neccessary.

With my Eee, no extra driver was needed. I changed only Source:
Code:
Capture Method: version2
Device Channel: 0
Device Format: PAL
Capture Palette: YUYV
Width: 320
Height: 240

Yeah, it's best to get into the habit of restarting it anyway (after making any changes Wink )

I downloaded Watchdog, then realized that it was only for USB cameras.

I recently acquired an IP camera ($49. USD) that connects to the RJ-45 port. It is generic, no manufacturer or model number, and came with a MS windows-only mini-CD.

I have loaded WaryWatcher on my Samsung Netbook NB30

It loads OK but cannot "see" an IP Camera that wants ActiveX.

So far I have not located a Linux app that has a functional work-around that is also available in Puppy.

Note: The site that sold these $49. IP cameras never mentioned that they were dependent on a proprietary MS app. Sigh.

I sure could use "smarter eyes" on this as I don't even know where to begin.

For example, how would one even make a hardware query of the camera to try and figure out what it really is - since everything with it is highly generic - no useful markings or identifications anywhere on it or in the manual.

I read that one can run a sniffer like Wireshark to detect incoming network activity from the camera - is anything like that available for Puppy?

It may be a Foscam F18910 (wired, not wireless) PTZ.

This looks interesting but I cannot tell if it would be safe to flash without risk of bricking it!

Hello

Just to say I've tested Wary Watcher on my network this evening and am very happy, thank you CatDude!

I've been running Zoneminder under a few Debian distros lately - Crunchbang and Lubuntu, using a cheap 4 port analogue capture card but started to question the reasoning behind running some old electricity-guzzling PC's (one old PC died, replaced by another..) so started to look around.

I have used Puppy before, and keep an older version on a 128MB mem stick to use when needed.

I will be replacing 1x old power-hungry PC & capture card + 4x analogue cameras with 1x newer PC which I happen to have here (no PCI slots..) and 3x IP cameras, adding a 4th later.

I'm even thinking of disconnecting the hard disk and running Wary from USB only (32GB stick for now)

So tonight, with the one IP camera I have (2x on order) I tried booting from a 1GB mem stick and adding the following into Zoneminder:

Source: remote.

Remote Protocol
HTTP

Remote Method
Simple

Remote Host Name
192.168.45.230

Remote Host Port
81

Remote Host Path
/snapshot.cgi?user=admin&pwd=****&resolution=32&rate=0

Remote Image Colours
24 bit colour

Capture Width (pixels)
640
Capture Height (pixels)
480

Preserve Aspect Ratio

Orientation
Normal

This works with the Tenvis camera I have on my network right now Very Happy

I'll post more info & details about what I'm using once the system is set up with the other two cameras but for now wanted to give a big thank you to CatDude for this.

The (pay) app for iPhone - EyeZM - also works. You need to specify the full path http://the.ip.address/zm/index.php

Happy days!

Thanks again,

Ashley

Hi David

Yes its the same camera.

Tenvis themselves have a very good website with latest firmware & utilities

http://www.tenvis.com/

I found some excellent stuff on setting up the Tenvis cameras in Zoneminder from Glen Pitt-Pladdy, here: http://www.pitt-pladdy.com/blog/_20111111-144944_0000_TENVIS_Camera_with_ZoneMinder_Linux_or_Mac_setup_/

Regards,

Ashley

Thanks!

I made the error of buying one a while back that required ActiveX and thus was useless in Linux.
