Foscam FI8918W script with presets and IR control

Post by hdurdle » Sun Feb 27, 2011 4:14 pm

Hi all,

I've updated the existing Foscam Control Module to work properly with the Foscam FI8918W.

In the existing module horizontal panning appeared reversed so I've fixed that and added the ability to set and move to presets and turn the IR LEDs on and off (using the wake and sleep buttons). I also put the username and password in the Control Device field so it doesn't have to be hardcoded in the script. (See my site for information on configuring this.)

Wiki Page: http://www.zoneminder.com/wiki/index.php/Foscam_FI8918W

More information at my site: http://durdl.es/x

Hope this is useful to others.

Howard

Seems to work just fine. I tried it out on three cameras and decided to just put together an installable DVD with the files and examples included. Thanks for providing this code.

Awesome! I'll try these on some Foscam clones I have installed.
Thanks a lot.
Just... enjoy life! :D

Hello and thanks you for the script
Have this cam since a couple of days with no PT success (zm v1.24.3 SVN 3312)

when i try to move cam have this popup
Control response was status = undefined
message = /usr/bin/zmcontrol.pl --autostop --command=moveConUp --id=3=>
with this zmcontrol.log

08/05/2011 00:29:07.134598 zmcontrol[17606].INF [Starting control server 3/Foscam]
08/05/2011 00:29:07.136469 zmcontrol[17609].INF [Control server 3/Foscam starting at 11/05/08 00:29:07]

Have you an idea?

i try your auth. method and your pm script and the classic method user:password@ip with standard foscam.pm script
with no result

Hi christophe_y2k,

Your script doesn't work for me :(

I get this in the logs:

Code: Select all

2011-09-10 19:26:06.049905	web_php	13314	ERR	/usr/local/bin/zmcontrol.pl --preset=1 --command=presetGoto --id=1=>	includes/functions.php	2322
2011-09-10 19:26:06.041860	zmcontrol	15926	FAT	Can't connect: No such file or directory	zmcontrol.pl
Am i supposed to modify anything in the script?

Cheers,
John

Hello
are you sure the file script is named "Foscam.pm"

and is in the good directory?

another way that work for me one day :
# perl-cleaner reallyall
that rebuild all perl module.

and if i upgrade perl, i must rebuild zm (with my gentoo)

for me the PT script for foscam works fine with zm 1.25.0 svn build 3515

-------------
sorry haven't seen before you resolved issue with "Logger" in place of "Debug" in script (since v.1.25.0)
i updated the script to later in this forum sorry

Modded script with Speed Control, Full Autostop and Jog

Post by Optimist » Fri Oct 07, 2011 11:40 am

Good afternoon.

I've restructured these scripts and incorporated speed control, full autostop and a jog facility, plus the settings required if you ceiling mount the camera.

I've only tried it on my DB Power and Tenvis cameras which are Foscam clones, but as I started with the Foscam scripts I'm fairly certain that it will work on the Foscam.

Save this script in your normal directory for .pm files as FoscamClone.pm and set the permissions.

Goto the Control tab of your monitor setup and click the edit link next to the control type. On the window that pops up click 'Add New Control Type' - the 'Control Capability - New' Window pops up.

Main Tab
Name: Foscam Clone
Type: Remote
Protocol: FoscamClone
Check these boxes:-
Can Wake (Optional - see below)
Can Sleep (Optional - see below)
Can Reset

Move Tab
Check these boxes:-
Can Move
Can Move Diagonally
Can Move Continuous

Pan Tab
Check these boxes:-
Can Pan
Has pan Speed

Min Pan Speed: 10
Max Pan Speed: 0

Tilt Tab
Check these boxes:-
Can Tilt
Has Tilt Speed

Min Tilt Speed: 10
Max Tilt Speed: 0

Zoom Tab
Check these boxes:-
Can Zoom
Can Zoom Continuous
Has Zoom Speed (Optional - see below)
Min Zoom Speed: 10
Max Zoom Speed: 0

Iris Tab
Check these boxes:-
Can Iris
Can Iris Continuous
Has Iris Speed (Optional - see below)
Min Iris Speed: 10
Max Iris Speed: 0

Note: These cameras have neither Zoom or Iris control I'm using them as jog position controls

Presets Tab
Check these boxes:-
Has Presets
Has Home Preset
Can Set Presets

Num Presets: 16

Click the Save Button, close the Control Capabilities box then close and reopen the Monitor edit box.

Control Tab
Check box Controllable
Control Type: Foscam Clone
Control Device: user=admin&pwd= (default)
Control Address: The ip address of your cam
Auto Stop Timeout: 0.80
Note this is obviously a matter of choice, but on my system it does not like being changed. Most times I end up rebooting to make it take effect.

Misc Tab
Default View: Control (Optional)

Once it is setup, you can control the position of the monitor in the normal way, but the further from the centre that you click the arrow, the faster the camera will move and therefore the further it will move before timing out.

There is also a jog facility, if you click the horizontal or vertical arrows very close to the centre button then the camera will be jogged one step regardless of the autostop setting. It requires a steady finger on your mouse but gives good macro control and not time is wasted sending the speed and stop controls to the camera. This does not work for diagonal movement

The downside of this is that you lose some lower ranges of speed control. If you don't like it, search the script for 'jog movement' to disable or change.

Another way to jog the camera is to use the Zoom and Iris controls - I'm not sure whether this is a good idea as it is neither pretty or intuitive but it can easily be disabled by unchecking the Can Zoom and Can Iris boxes. Click on:-

Tele Zoom - to Jog Left
Wide Zoom - to Jog Right
Open Iris - to Jog Up
Close Iris - to Jog Down

If you have checked the Has Zoom Speed and Has Iris Speed boxes then the closer to the arrow tip that you click the faster the speed. This has no effect on my cameras, but it would appear from other posts that some cameras will jog faster/further with a higher speed. If it has no effect then uncheck those boxes, as sending the speed command can take significant time.

The wake and sleep controls seem to have no effect on my clone cameras, but some posters have said that they turn the IR LED's on/off so they are there if you want them.

My script uses the command value 30 to set the preset 1 position. Some scripts appear to use 32 instead which alters the position of all presets by one. Search the script for 'Code for Preset 1' to change.

The stop button still sends the stop command, but it should only be used to stop a call preset initiated move. If you use it to stop normal movement, the command will still be sent but not until after the autostop has timed out and sent the stop signal.

I've noticed some problems with excessive time for the camera to respond. This is not a fault of the script so much as my computer/network/cameras delaying the time to send and reply to commands. However, if there is poor network response then this sript makes it worse because it first sends the speed command, then the movement command and finally a stop command except for the jog mode which just sends one.

I would like to thank all those who have posted the scripts for these cameras which I was able to use as the basis of this script.

If you still want to try it, here is the code. I hope it is useful.

As I mentioned in my post, I have not tested it on the Foscam camera but can't see any reason why it would not work. My script is based on the others that have been posted on this thread, and I have not changed any command codes except for the preset 1 that I mentioned.

In order to troubleshoot your system, can you tell me what happens when you use it. If you click on a preset call (2 or greater) or the stop button, do you get an error message pop up on the control window after a few seconds? If you do, it shows that the script has not compiled properly or could not be found.

Edit

I have just found that in the instructions above, I had not mentioned the protocol entry in the Main Tab of the Control Capability box. Unless you had spoted that, it would certainly stop it working.

The Protocol box should be FoscamClone

Sorry if I have caused you problems - I've edited the original post.

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 the forum trying to find a resolution to that... If I can fix that, I'll update the Foscam 8918 wiki with your script and post here.

Sorry for the delay in replying.

It is possible to use the Iris control to control brightness, but I'm not sure how effective it would be.

It is easy enough to change my Up/Down control to use the Focus and leave the Iris free, but the problem is that the Foscam uses a brightness value between 0 and 255, but the ZM control GUI will only detect a limited number of steps. You would have a down arrow that gave you around 10 absolute values between 0 and 127 and another 10 steps on the up arrow between 128 and 255.

The best work around would be to change the Control GUI and script to provide a slider control. Unfortunately, I've no idea how to do this.

The other way, would be to query the camera to get the brightness value and then change it by in small amounts. If anyone can post a subroutine to read this value then I will incorporate it into my script.

I'll try to get a modified script out during the next week, but as I said, I have my doubts about how practical it will be.

Have you resolved your problems with the control scripts not running? If so, please post how you solved it.

I've had my share of problems starting ZM after a computer crash and never really solved it. The problem must be something to do with Perl but that's as far as I've got. I now run it on a virtual machine on VMware ESXi which makes it easy to restore the system, but I'd prefer to find a solution.
