VC240 Question

Good afternoon!

I purchased a VC240 camera to use as a construction cam for our new building project.  I thought that I read that I could take still pictures with the camera.  So far, I have been unable to figure out how to take a still picture and ftp it to my web server.

Is it possible and if so, how?  I have my ftp server configured inthe camera, and I can push the test file to the server.  I don't see where to configure anythign else.

If there is a software program that I can download and install, or even purchase, that will work too.  I need to get this working before the construction gets into full swing.

Thank you for any and all suggestions and pointers.

VC240 Question

Boy do I feel stupid...

Not ten minutes after I post my message, I figure out what I was doing wrong.  I now have the camera doing exactly what I wanted it to do 2 months ago.

I'm not going to keep it on this machine, but here's a link to an image of the site- MLSD Construction Cam

For the record, I created an entry under media that is a snapshot with my filename prefix.  Then I created an event that runs periodically every 30 minutes and references the media I created.
