Time

Select Always or input the time interval.

Snapshot file name prefix

The prefix name will be added on the file name of the snapshot images.

Trigger

Event trigger type has digital input, motion detection and is sequential.

Digital input: Network Camera will send snapshots when the digital input is triggered.

*Note: Please configure Motion Detection first: There are three windows for motion detection and each needs to be defined. Select the windows which need to be monitored. If motion detection has not been set up,undefined will be shown instead of the window title. If this happens, the window can be defined by clicking onMotion detection and a note will show to direct the user to the configuration page for motion detection setup.

Motion Detection

See Motion Detection (page 25) for set-upinstructions.

Send pre-event image(s): The number ofpre-snapshotsthat will be captured and sent when a condition is triggered.

Send post-event image(s): The number ofpost-snapshotsthat will be captured and sent when a condition is triggered.

Delay second(s) before detecting next motion: Set the time delay before restarting to check on the triggering condition when the current condition is triggered.

Sequential: Snapshot interval: second(s): The Network Camera will send snapshots at the specified intervals to the external server using the method selected below. Remember: This operation is still subject to the conditions set in the weekly schedule.

Send Snapshot By

Email: This selects the uploading method following the intervals set above. The snapshot named“prefix-yyyymmdd-hhmmss.jpg”will be attached in the email.

FTP: The snapshots will be uploaded to the external FTP server with the file name defined in the next option. This can also be used to refresh the captured images stored in the external web server to build creative homepages.

FTP put snapshots with date and time suffix: This option sets up the snapshot capture

date and time, which can be used to easily differentiate the snapshot file names in the sequential operation. For instance, “prefix-20030102-030405.jpg”means the JPEG image was captured in the year 2003, January the 2nd, at 3 o’clock, 4 minute, and 5 second. If this suffix is omitted, the file named “video.jpg” on the external FTP server will be refreshed at the specified interval.

System Log

The Network Camera contains a system log where all system related messages for the camera can be viewed. This system log contains important information about the configuration and connection of the

camera after bootup. Remote logging is also possible on a Linux server with syslogd service running. Simply enter the IP Address and Port Number of the server to configure the remote logging option. Please note: your remote server must be RFC 3164 compliant.

Check Enable remote log and input theIP address andport number of the log server to enable the remote log facility.Current log displays the current system log file. The content of the log provides useful information about configuration and connection after systemboot-up.

B. URL Commands of the Network Camera

For some customers who already have their own web site or web control application, the Network Camera can be easily integrated through convenient URLs. This section lists the commands in URL format corresponding to the basic functions of the Network Camera.

Get server parameter values

Note: This request requires administrator access

Method: GET/POST

Syntax:

http://<servername>/cgi-bin/admin/getparam.cgi?[<parameter>][&<parameter>…]

Where the <parameter> should be<group>[_<name>] or<group>[.<name>] If you do not specify the any parameters, all the parameters on the server will be returned. If you specify only<group>, the parameters of related group will be returned.

When query parameter values, the current parameter values are returned. Successful control requests returns parameter pairs as follows.

Return:

HTTP/1.0 200 OK\r\n Content-Type:text/html\r\nContext-Length:<length>\r\n \r\n

<parameter pair>
