Did you know - Google aren't very nice.  Apparently we're all evil pirates here on OpenIPCam, and they cancelled my adsense account due to that.  Sigh.

Firmware / Re: To Find RX TX for Firmware Download

Blurry photos aren't helping  ;D

What you'll need to do is lookup the datasheet for the chipset used (looks like a Hixxx device, so Hisilicon), and see what pins are the rx /tx for the chip, then trace those on the board to see if there are access points.

Looks like the bottom 5 pins are likely ones (from the IMG_1900), but you'll need to buzz out to check.

My level of linux knowledge hovers between Linux Mint, Raspbian and Arch sometimes, not very familiar with embedded stuff...
I am writing an alternative to ZoneMinder in Node.js. It is called Shinobi. So far it is pretty barebones. It records video to webm and streams over websocket. I have found other apps like NodeMinder but i couldn't get them to run properly...
So i made this. I want to share since it is open source and free to use.
Would be swell if you guys could give me your thoughts/opinions.
You can view the github page here

Key Aspects

- Records IP Cameras and Local Cameras
- Streams by WebSocket
- Save to WebM and MP4
 - Get videos
 - Get monitors
 - Change monitor modes : Disabled, Watch, Record
 - Embedding streams

General Discussion / Xeoma VMS surveillance software
« Last post by christianbale13 on January 17, 2017, 06:34:26 pm »
Hopefully this helps someone save the hours I spent trying to find a Linux based system that wasn't a piece of junk. Xeoma is a video management system I recently found that has answered every request I’ve asked of it. Works on Mac, Linux, Windows and I’ve been trying to hunt down an easily configurable and out of the box working surveillance system when I finally found Xeoma. I had literally tried at least 10 programs/solutions, sacrificing the Linux requirement and even trying Windows programs but, they all failed to provide a complete and reliable solution until Xeoma. Xeoma allowed me to remote access without extra charges or monthly service fees, is expandable depending on how many cameras or video inputs I need which is perfect for any future scaling needs. It also supported my cameras since it uses simple protocols found in any IP camera on the market today and I was able to hook up the hodge-podge of cameras I’d collected without issue and all functioning correctly.

The free trial they offer is a definite smart move as you’re allowed unlimited access of all the features for 4 hours to test everything and ensure it matches what you need. As I mentioned earlier I had attempted several other VMS applications and out of all of them, Xeoma was far more intuitive and simple to install, configure, and operate. They have a minimal and simplistic way to program the provided features which is a blessing coming from the typical Linux command line way of doing things or the meaningless and undefinable customization options other VMS provided.

The bottom line is that if you’re considering a Linux video management system for your home or business even, I would highly recommend checking out Xeoma and downloading the trial version to see if it fits your needs. Check them out at
