Re: Foscam FI8918W script with presets and IR control

It is possible to use the Iris control to control brightness, but I'm not sure how effective it would be. It seems like a close analogue to the iris function and has some intuitiveness to it. I don't know that I have a use for it in my setup... perhaps I'll play around with it tonight and see if it...

Re: are control scripts cached? if so, how to reload them?

Got it.

ps aux | grep 'zmcontrol'

Re: are control scripts cached? if so, how to reload them?

Even changing the protocol used to a filename that doesn't exist, or creating a new control profile with a bum protocol... None of it would break anything. I had to reboot to actually see an impact. What's going on h...

Re: Foscam FI8918W script with presets and IR control

Optimist, Have you considered making the "Iris" commands control the brightness of the camera? I'd love to give your script a try on my Foscam, but for some reason my latest upgrade has resulted in none of the control scripts even appearing to run... Even manually with zmcontrol. I'm poking around t...

Re: SQL Errors when trying to generate video

I am experiencing this same problem. Everything works in other windows, but none of the actions really work in the event view. Did use DEB package as well. The initial click of the "export" button from the event takes you to: index.php?view=export&eid=undefined It looks like everything in /usr/share...
