Hi Cisco Community,
My apologies if I am not posting this in the correct section / allowed to post here.
I've got a PVC2300 mounted inside a pelco enclosure that is positioned 6 meters high. Sometimes the motion detection event doesn't work to well (this is due to the fact that its in an enclosure and pointed out towards the ocean at a beach location).
Also the motion detection event is pretty much useless at night without surrounding illumination.
In Australia we also have severe lack of broadband speed and also download allowance, therefore it is not practical to broadcast streaming video (we would get charged excessive fees for exceeding download quotas and only one person could view the camera at any one time).
I've written a custom windows service that reads the PVC2300's MJPEG stream over http at a specified interval and saves a single .JPG file in which the windows service uploads the .JPG file to a specified website. This means that you will always get an updated image from the camera every 5 minutes, rather than based on motion detection. It would have been nice if cisco / linksys implemented this within the camera's firmware (maybe in a future version?).
Anyway, communities share things with each other, so i've made the software freely available to anyone who wishes to use it. I would appreciate any feedback from Cisco / Linksys.
