Hi chu2001:
Sorry, the guard function still not ready.
We will think about fully support FOSCAM in next release.

Hi,
@syno.ericlee
in FW 1157 PT does not work for FOSCAM FI8908W. Time between decoder_control.cgi?command=2 (start move) and decoder_control.cgi?command=1 (stop move) is to short. In original Foscam software mouse-down starts move, mouse-up stops move.
And settings are mirrored, left should be 4, right 6, up 0 and down 2.

Hi,
for me I changed the section to
Code: Select all
[FOSCAM*generic-ptz]
        port=80
        video source="videostream.cgi"
        snapshot="snapshot.cgi"
        tilt up="decoder_control.cgi?command=0&onestep=20"
        tilt down="decoder_control.cgi?command=2&onestep=20"
        pan left="decoder_control.cgi?command=4&onestep=20"
        pan right="decoder_control.cgi?command=6&onestep=20"
        home pos="decoder_control.cgi?command=25"
#       stop ptz="decoder_control.cgi?command=1"

hhonda,

I just got my foscam from foscam.us and was also really excited. I had read online that this camera worked with Synology. If you have gotten the PTZ to work please PM me. I would really appreciate getting the code for this.

Thanks,
dollarbrand

Thanks Goetz. This is great information. Looks like you can use this to make any hardware capable camera to be fully supported in DS.

Has anyone tried enabling the zoom functions yet? Foscam has a new FI8906 camera that has 3x optical zoom that I want to use. Interested in seeing if anyone has edited the conf file to support zoom on any camera before.

On there supported camera list DS seem to make a distinction that zoom is supported on camera with optical zoom only. I think this is because optical zoom require command(s) to the camera and digital zoom can be done inside DS regardless if and how the camera supports it or not.

Thanks
Eric

Has anyone here figured out how to record, or more specifically how to use motion detection to record?

I notice this thread is a bit older, but I find the information rather useful, thanks!

And for those who are not familiar with VI but wish to be, there's loads of information available online.
Try this one for a quick start: http://www.eng.hawaii.edu/Tutor/vi.html

Is there anyone that has been trying to modify their system to get a foscam FI8918W working with DSM3/SS5?

Regards
Vince
