This Interface supports both accessing your IP Cameras totally securely for private personal use or for public Internet use by others.

Totally Secure. Any sizes, shapes, locations and clickable or not clickable. Embedded in your cameras images as they display. Use as a marketing tool or watermark for your cameras. Viewable by any Internet browser capable devices from Computers to Tablets to Phones and TVs.

This may seem trivial at first. But imagine being able to have your Logo or images ("Actually embedded in your cameras live images being displayed") and that when specific Logos/Images are clicked on. They take you to specific places based on what Logo/Image was clicked on. Social media sites, other web pages. Your choices are endless.

Here is a live camera example using multiple Logos/Images, Custom Text, Date/Time and Camera Controls. The "Request More Info" Logo/Image button accepts a click or a touch on that Logo/Image button alone and the other Logos/Images or camera viewing area is not clickable and Logos/Images stay where they are, when the camera viewing area is moved or zoomed:

You could even embed Preset image buttons in the cameras images, that when clicked on, move to cameras view to specific camera views.

Live camera examples, without camera controls and where when the "Request More Info" Logo/Image button" is clicked on, it takes you one place and any other areas of the live cameras views, when clicked on, take you to another place.

* U.S. China time difference allows seeing cameras in daylight/IR

Live H.264 Examples:



Live MJPEG Examples:



All the examples above, also support HTTPS secure access methods even with IP Cameras which don't natively support HTTPS access methods.

Here are some more details on some of the features of this Interface which have not been explained in much detail before.

 Different Ways This Interface Can Be Configured To Operate
Code: [Select]
Browser (HTTP)  <-> Interface <-> IP Camera (HTTP)
 Browser (HTTP)  <-> Interface <-> IP Camera (HTTPS)
 Browser (HTTPS) <-> Interface <-> IP Camera (HTTPS)
 Browser (HTTPS) <-> Interface <-> IP Camera (HTTP)

The above allows you to configure the flow end-to-end, on a per camera basis on how IP Camera controls will be used and/or how images will be pulled from IP Cameras. It also allows you to control and display IP Cameras which don't natively support HTTPS access methods in web pages which are using HTTPS vs. HTTP. For both private and public use.

Regardless of what methods are used above. At no time does any information about a IP Camera travel over the Internet from/to the Interface to any devices browser about a IP Cameras DDNS, ISP IP Address, Port or User credentials.

The Interface also supports using a optional unique logon and password, to access IP Cameras. Even if the IP Camera itself, does not support HTTPS access methods. This allows you to more securely use those logon credentials to access that or those IP Cameras. Without having those logon credentials being "in the clear" as they would normally be when using HTTP access methods.

For public use. Because the Interface has a configuration option to store the last image from the IP Camera received to disk. It allows one to configure pulling that image from disk vs. going to the IP Camera each time for a fresh image. Based on how old that image on disk is. Before grabbing a fresh image from the IP Camera. Which is a configuration option in the Interface. There is no file clutter to do this. Since only the last image received from the IP Camera is stored on disk and the same image file on disk, is reused when newer images are received from the IP Camera are saved.

As an example. Say you had 100+ website visitors simultaneously viewing a web page that the Interface was used in and that web page was automatically refreshing IP Camera images once a second, in that web page. If you configure the Interface to get the IP Cameras image from disk if that image on disk is one second old or less. Then, only one website visitor would cause a fresh image to be pulled from the IP Camera. The others would automatically be pulling the image from disk for those IP Cameras instead. If that image was one second old or less. When those others made their new image request for that IP Camera. This allows you to throttle real-time requests to IP Cameras, automatically. For public use.

Since the Interface allows IP Camera images to be resized on a per IP Camera basis. It allows you to display as many IP Camera images at the same time at whatever resolutions you choose. For both private and public use. On a per IP Camera basis. Not being restricted with only using the actual size image provided by the IP Camera itself. You can create copies of the Interface that may be better suited for mobile devices. While another copy of the Interface controlling/displaying the same IP Cameras would use larger IP Camera image resolutions. For other devices. With or without any custom text and/or logos/images you merged with the IP Cameras original images.

For private use. Because the Interface is compatible with all Internet browser capable devices. It allows you to instantly check on the health and status of many IP cameras at the same time. From virtually any Internet browser capable device. Without any need to first install any other software first, on any device. While also allowing using secure access methods to be used, even if the IP Cameras themselves don't support secure access methods. While also controlling bandwidth usage while doing so, if needed.

With security vulnerability abuses increasing daily. It's never a good idea to ever expose publicly or privately over insecure Internet connections. The DDNS or ISP IP Address, Port or user credentials of any IP Camera. When/If that can be avoided. Which this Interface can do and does for both private and public access to your IP Cameras. To do otherwise. Is truly inviting trouble, with open arms.

The Interface now also supports IP Camera controls for all Hikvision IP Cameras including PTZ Pan, Tilt and Zoom for Hikvision IP Cameras that have Zoom lenses.

Any Hikvision IP Camera that has a RS485 interface can use add on horizontal pan brackets for Hikvision IP Cameras that don't support PTZ as well. Like these examples:

Have you not downloaded and installed it?

If you need help installing it, please see this:

Also. Here are 40 real-time live working demonstrations of this Interface in use. To better help visualize, the many different ways that this Interface can be used with Network IP Cameras:

New: Added Axis live IP Camera Demos to the many other live IP Camera demos here:

The Axis live IP Camera demo below even allows you to to start a train and includes Axis IP Camera controls such as PTZ ("Pan/Tilt/Zoom"), Presets and infinite zoom as well as the IP Cameras zoom lens controls:

Note: The Interface does and will work with any IP Camera brand and models that allows pulling snapshots using HTTP or HTTPS URL's.
