I have now started to look at this again - a long time after Christmas I know. :wink:

I am intending to put the latest version on Github to establish a baseline for where we are with the various cameras. I will then look at trying to understand and resolve the various problems. :)



I'm between contracts and can help out if useful to you.

Thanks for the offer - with your selection of cameras that would be useful. :)

What version of the plugin are you using?

Re: Autolog Foscam HD Controller Discussion

OK

Foscam C1-Lite Cameras work completely - Motion detection and images retrieved on activity :-) Great job Autlog!!!

Just added Foscam F19900P HD External bullet cam - only set up Motion Detection - works great so far, can't try image capture without invalidating the warranty :-) i.e. micro sd card hidden inside camera, have to break seals to access it

Very nice to track motion around the house with these cheap cameras

Re: Autolog Foscam HD Controller Discussion

I have just updated the firmware on all the cameras

I now get

Code: Select all
Error                           device "Cam-06 - Front Door" state key humanDetectAlarmState not defined (ignoring update request)
   Foscam HD Controller Error      'responseFromCamera' Error -3:Access deny [51:<CGI_Result>
    <result>-3</result>
</CGI_Result>
]
   Error                           device "Cam-06 - Front Door" state key humanDetectAlarmState not defined (ignoring update request)


Any insight on what is amiss here?

Passwords, usernames unchanged
Can access video streaming same credentials.

Plugin is showing Motion OK, so unclear on where the error is occurring

Re: Autolog Foscam HD Controller Discussion

There is a beta version (V2.2.5) which should hopefully fix this issue.

You can get it from the Github main page at https://github.com/autolog/Foscam_HD_Controller - click the green Clone or download button then select Download ZIP.

It isn't an official release yet as I haven't had time to document it or complete testing. I am however using it as my production system.

Let me know if it works for you. :)

Re: Autolog Foscam HD Controller Discussion

Jon,, thanks that seems to have stopped the avalanche of error messages and Indigo i son longer consuming all my CPU - phew.

On starting the updated plugin I did get:

Code: Select all
Foscam HD Controller Error      'responseFromCamera' Error -3:Access deny [51:<CGI_Result>
    <result>-3</result>
</CGI_Result>
]


I really like that you are updating the time to the cameras, I have blocked access to the internet for the cameras, so can't use NTP, this is a great way around it, because the Foscam Cameras can't keep time to save their lives :-)
