Setup General Purpose IP Camera

Steps to connect your IP camera to BerryNet:

  1. Get snapshot URL of the IP camera.

    The camera connection database can generate snapshot URL if your IP camera is supported.

    The key is that the IP camera supports retrieving snapshots via HTTP. For example, my IP camera provides the interface to retrieve snapshot:

    http://<ip-address>/cgi-bin/encoder?USER=<username>&PWD=<password>&Channel=1&SNAPSHOT
    
  2. Configure BerryNet

    1. Edit config.ipcameraSnapshot in /usr/local/berrynet/config.js.
    2. Restart BerryNet.
