Not with such a vague question. If the camera will do a static jpg image, it will work with zm.

There are literally thousands of chinese ip cams on alibaba, many with no model number or accurate specs, and I know from experience these cheap cameras sometimes change firmware without notice, so two identical cameras from different batches might have entirely different firmware, paths and capabilities.

That said, several specific models have been mentioned on these forums. Search for 'dealextreme'

All,
I have two that I have currently rendered useless using the wrong interface software to update parameters. Make sure you keep track of your cd's for the Chinese cameras. No I am trying to figure out how to correct the mess I have created.

It depends unless they give you a demo camera and you try it there is no way to know. Ask most are more than willing to put a camera up for you to demo.

TENVIS
EasyN
Apexis

These are the main producers of cameras provided by ebay.
I would like to see on the forum are the Chinese manufacturers of these cameras work with zoneminder.

Are any of these known to work? Tenvis, for instance, seems to have several cameras that would work for me, but unfortunately I can't seem to find any info on 'budget' IP cameras like these.

Look at my post: "http://www.zoneminder.com/forums/viewto ... 14&t=18795"
available on ebay: "http://www.ebay.ca/itm/230681062800?ssP ... RK:null:IT"
Hope that helps.

Hello All,

I have a few Chinese cameras and can post the model numbers but they are OEM and have not mfg name or identifier anywhere. What protocol do you use for connecting to the IP stream and what 1. Source Type, 2. Remote Protocol, 3. Remote Method, and 4. Remote Host Path are you using, or do you use for this type of camera?

If the camera's will save images via FTP is there a way to get ZM to monitor and create modetect events from this stream of contigous files?

Thanks in Advance, I appreciate your input.

Mark
