Im pretty new to this ipcam things, but ive bought the cam i mentions in the title.
Its a ARM7 W90N745CDG Board, and ive successfully hooked up a serial connectioner to it.

Now i working on a .NETmf project on a FEZ Panda 2, and i was thinking if i can control the cam's rotate & tilt trough serial commands?

I know i can do it through the CGI api, over wifi or lan...
But i would be alot better if i could just handle it via serial, then my Fez board could control it by it self, without having to connect to wifi.

Is this possible? someone who can point me in the right direction...

We're in the same boat. I just converted mine to an ROV, using the tilt axis for forward / backward motion and the pan for steering.

I would love to harness the gpio to drive a DC motor for propulsion, cause all in all, this is a very cheap board with a LOT of features.

Are you Dutch by chance? Maybe we should exchange some knowledge.
