EasyN FS613A-M105 IP camera setup issue?

Post by ScottBouch » Mon Oct 28, 2013 10:40 pm

Hi all,

I'm new to this (In the UK). I am installing a camera as the "winter burglaries" have started again in our village. Last year on the lead up to Christmas was the first year we'd been hit hard (as a village) with several houses being burgled in the couple of months leading up to the big day. And this year, they have now started again in October...

Tech issues:

Having scoured the forum, wiki, and net, I'm still struggling to see any video from my camera using Zoneminder.

System:
Ubuntu 10.04 fresh install
Mozilla Firefox web browser
ZoneMinder 1.24 installed following the wiki

Camera:
EasyN FS613A-M105 looking down side alley of house
Connected via CAT6 Ethernet cable (Power Over Ethernet)
Wifi turned off.
IP address: 192.168.1.94
Port: 81

I can view the camera's video via web browsers via inbuilt web pages, you select which one depending on the browser / mobile device. also can view on android using Opera Mobile, and various IP camera apps.

Options presented:

View in Firefox:

This post here touches on similar issues, talks about using FFMPEG source instead of REMOTE: ubuntuandroidbits.blogspot(dot)co(dot)uk/2011/05/easyn-fs-613-webcam-installation(dot)html

I've tried loads of times to play with the source settings, but so far have not found a combination that works. I need to know if I have the right syntax for the host path, host name etc..

Have I bought a camera that's not compatible? It was one of the cheapest I could find on Ebay, about £40 GBP... Is ZoneMinder not for this camera?

Thanks, Scott.

It should work. Think this is a Foscam clone so try looking at the wiki entries for setting up Foscam cameras.

GREAT NEWS!

This wiki entry fixed me!! http://www.zoneminder.com/wiki/index.php/Foscam_Clones

I have been through about 4 or 5 Linux distro's before finding Ubuntu 10.04 suited the vintage of my machine the best.. Some pain, but a good learning experience.

So now I have a working vanilla install, with working Zoneminder! Now it's time to get the detection zone set up right, and make sure recording works ok, configure emails, etc...

Thanks again!!!!! :D :D :D
