This is a very useful piece of code! The FI8918W is sold here in NL under the brand Sygonix by Conrad. Unfortunately the support is nil. Thanks to some googling, I found out that the same cam is sold under the name Foscam in US and they DO support the device with newer firmware and this nice forum. Since I want to use the cam from a home made php website, I was very happy to find Kenneth's post. It will bring me closer to my solution!

I'm putting together requests for Ver5 at this time. Is there anything you wish added to the script. So far, only a couple of requests for playing with sound enabled.

I really haven't had time to play with the camera since that first weekend I got it.
I still have plans to integrate it into a utility within the next two months.

Thank you so much for this thread! One of my simplest 'chores' each day is to turn on/off the alarm and going through the full web interface is time consuming - having a single click makes it much faster whether on my phone, tablet or PC! :) Clarice

Hi :) I don't know if I understood it right, but should the htm file also show the ip-cam stream above the menu? I'm using Opera Mobile in my Nokia N8 and the menu controls are working fine: this I checked having my laptop logged on camera and if I change resolution from N8/browser->the resolution changes on the stream on my laptop. So the passwords etc are correct on htm but no picture. Any hints? Thanks in advance! :)

Romansan,

How were you able to compensate for the internet lag when doing direct camera movement to get to the desired position?

I would love to have the ability to have the camera switch from one preset location to the next every few minutes.
Lacking that how about a way to track and follow movement.

methias,

if you are using a pc a simple looping batch file will do what you want with a couple of delay commands between the switch and view commands. I doubt this will work on most cell phones.

I want to write a java script file or so (I do not have experience with internet programming) that when opened in IE or Firefox command a Foscam FI8918W to go from preset position 1 to 8, take snapshots and finally save these pictures on my hard disk.

Something like this:

Open C://SequenceOfPictures.htm
For n = preset position 1 TO preset position 8
Take Snapshot n
Save Snapshot n
Next n


The only purpose for which I use my IP Camera is to take a sequence of 8 picture from time to time when I tell the camera to do so.

Moving the camera manually from position 1 to 8, taking the snapshots and saving them is time consuming and has started to be an annoying thing.

Any idea how to write such a script?
