Foscam FI8910W Burst Integration

(Nrdk) #1

Continuing the discussion from Pairing a Vistacam:

So I’ve managed to use the above to get my Foscam FI8910W working for the last few months, however just recently (not sure of the time frame) the ‘Photo Burst When’ app has decided to only work when I’m in the app itself, on the main ‘Thing’ screen of my Foscam.

Anyone else having this issue? It’s extremely frustrating, as the chances of being on the Foscam at the exact second the trigger event happens is pretty much 0%

Note: All characteristics of the Foscam FI8910W ‘Thing’ work perfectly fine when manually launching them, snapshots, panning, etc have no issue. It is only the integration with the ‘Photo Burst When’ app that seems to have an issue, specifically when I am not connected to the local network (port open, no issues with external connections, ip hasn’t changed, etc etc etc).

If you’re on android this is a know issue that has been around for at least a year.
