I have taken a few related local IP camera projects and heavily modified them to give me the ability to use my older Panasonic PTZ IP Camera. The biggest difference of what this Device Handler offers is the PTZ feature and a few presets that can be defined on the camera which the Device Handler can activate.
The project was tested with the following Panasonic models:
FYI, I did test out the new live-video ability from @pstuart. Sadly it never worked in ST for my Panasonic cam (even though browsers easily saw video just ST could not) and the reason why I never posted that source code. If you’d want me to share that, I can certainly do that.
Video is not a requirement for me, a still shot is all I need 95% of the time. To be honest, the video rarely worked in Control4, so this is an upgrade . Thanks for working out the details, saved me a bunch of time.
Yep saw that sad thread looks like they’re finally providing an alternative. I’ll commit your changes… you added your Windows thumbnail thumbs.db file to the request so I’ll see how to commit your changes but remove that file. I’m kinda a novice at GitHub. Thanks for knocking this out as I am a user of my own code and was missing this for a couple of weeks.
Sorry for the late response but this got implemented after you submitted the changes. Thanks again for making this easy on me as I use this function in a few places and it was nice to finally copy/paste your updated logic.
