Dericam configuration

Hello!

I recently got a Dericam, and managed to get video working, but not control.

After some digging, I discovered that I can control the camera by making an HTTP GET request to the camera's URL, in the form of:

Code: Select all

http://ip-address/cgi-bin/hi3510/param.cgi?cmd=ptzctrl&-step=1&-act=up&-speed=45&-authorize=KEY
where "KEY" is simply "username:password" that's been Base64-encoded.

Any thoughts as to how I could incorporate this with Zoneminder, whether as a patch to the source code, and/or just in my own system? I know how to make GET requests from Perl/Bash, if that helps at all; I just don't know how to integrate it with Zoneminder.

What kind of configuration is this?

I'm not sure I understand the question?

Look, I'm fine to write the module or whatever if someone wants to give some pointers on where to start. I'll even contribute it back to the codebase. I just need to know where to look/requirements for my code.

Cool. :-)

Have you seen this page in the manual yet?

http://zoneminder.readthedocs.io/en/sta ... ntrol.html

I haven't done that work myself, but it appears to answer your question....

Dericam Camera CGI & RTSP User Guide

I know enough to be dangerous. If someone could put together a zoneminder control profile for Dericam, it would be AWESOME! :D

Apparently I need to make sure my notifications are enabled!

No, I hadn't seen this, but it doesn't seem to address my needs; I need the "developer" guide, not the user guide. :-) I'm not quite good enough to decipher the existing scripts in such a way I'm confident they'll work with Zoneminder. Maybe I need to just try and see what I break.

Nice! This might simplify things when I start writing the code. Rather than having to reverse-engineer the webpage, it looks like they include pretty much everything I need right here.

I added the cgi rtsp guide to the archive, in case the original link dies.
