IP 9000A network cameras

Post by shzaq » Tue Apr 05, 2005 8:07 pm

Just picked up three of these from compgeeks.com for $87/ea. They work fine with zoneminder, though I really don't have anything to compare them to, so YMMV. The manufacturer is Aviosys, http://www.aviosys.com

They suck in bright daylight, we pointed one out the window at the demolition site next door and all we got was a washed out white picture. I've not yet tested them with PoE, but that's on my todo list, so I'll post again if they work with the 70-90ft PoE runs that I'm going to make.

You need IE to initially configure them or upgrade the firmware. I've not tested their audio capabilities either. They are roughly the size of a cassette tape and come with a tripod as well as a permanent swivel mount.

Your welcome! Thanks for the great software!

I put together PoE adapters yesterday and with their crappy generic wall warts, I was able to get about 50ft. Any more and the cameras became unstable and the camera had a bad flicker.

Hi there, I have one of their "9100 Plus" ip video server which I think works the same as the 9000A. Could you tell me how you got yours to work with zm?

The only thing I can find is a cgi script on the built in web server that appears to stream out jpeg to the browser.

There is a demo on their website at username and password is both "guest" http://61.59.37.157/Simple/index.htm

I don't know how the four inputs are controlled on the video server, you might have to disect the index page (through IE) where you can select the camera to display to figure out how you call them individually

Once you do that you can use them with ZM: configure the source type as "remote" and then under the source tab in the "remote host path" field use "/GetData.cgi". Make sure that you've got the color and capture size set correctly or ZM will conk out.

Thanks Z,

I think I might have an apache issue actually. I am getting "Internal Server Error" displayed if I look at http://myserver/cgi-bin/zms?mode=single ... &scale=100
I shall check the logs and get back here.

Many thanks

Hello,

I have a Camera I picked up in Singapore with the same Interface, those cameras work with ZoneMinder using this URL:

http://61.59.37.157/Jpeg/CamImg.jpg

http://ipofcamera/Jpeg/CamImg.jpg

Case is important.

Regards,

Speegs

Thank you Speegs

http://<ipofcamera>/Jpeg/CamImg.jpg

I can confirm the /Jpeg/CamImg.jpg path does work through a browser. So that's where I shall try with zm.

WORKS!

I gave up after June's attempt to get zm to work with the 9100 network video server, but having had my car broken into this weekend, I just had to get it to work or buy an expensive DVR. I'm happy to report that I got 1.21.3 it to work (but without ffmpeg) on Ubuntu 5.04

My notes:

- use the Synaptic to help find all the necessary libraries

- make sure apache is configured to run cgi in the appropriate directory. If you get a binary stream beginning with the words "ELF" instead of jpeg files, then you haven't enabled cgi correctly. I just have a "ScriptAlias" inside a Virtualhost section.

- download cambozola.jar from zm's download page and place in the your zm installation directory. Then just tell zm to use it through the Options/Tools page.

- increase shared memory maximum size according to the faq http://www.zoneminder.com/index.php?id= ... faq_faq=10

- set the webuser to www-data as mentioned at http://www.zoneminder.com/forums/viewto ... ght=ubuntu

Code: Select all

--with-webuser=www-data --with-webgroup=www-data
My basic installation is now working, I'm sure there'll be lots to tweak, but at least I got a basic setup going. ;)

my configuration in zm is this:

Code: Select all

Monitor -> Source

Remote Host name: user:password@ipcamera
Remore Host Path :  /Jpeg/CamImg.jpg 

note: "/Jpeg/CamImg.jpg" case sensitive!
hope this can help you to set a password on video server ... :oops:
