Installation issues / problem installing IP cams in 1004
« on: October 20, 2012, 10:23:36 am »
I've been playing with various IP cameras over the past week with no success. he image is still unavailable.
I settled on focusing on the Foscam FI8910W which streams MJPEG only. I verified the stream address with Foscam and followed the tutorials.
I tried both motion and generic IP. the camera was not detected, so no P&P.
I also tried the D-Link DCS5222L which was P&P, but no picture showed up either (chose the 5300 at the prompt0. I proceeded to install it manually as motion and IP, but neither worked either.
I can see the pictures using the stream address in a browser, so that's verified.
I tried various combinations in the configuration, passed credentials via the address and also via the user/pwd entries, port in the address or in the port field,... nothing has worked so far, so I'm beginning to wonder what I'm doing wrong (assuming I'm at fault).
What could cause an IP camera NOT to work? My understanding from reading was that just pointing to the stream would display it. What am I missing? I'm trying to understand.
My other question would be, what needs to happen for the images to show (this one is so I can update the documentation).

Please post a link to the ticket or wherever the discussions move so those who are interested can follow along.
Thank you

The above issue has been resolved: please look at the Contributing to LMCE page.
I added instructions on the Tutorials/Guides landing page, but we need an icon like the one for the progammer's guide, probably something along the line of "Community documentation guide" or "Wiki editing guide", in order to make it obvious.

I am currently merging the essential pages and bringing the basics together, i started by editing directly and realized that it was going to create too much of a log, so I started editing offline. the updates that you received were probably from the time I was editing directly.
You should receive less feeds now that I moved my editing offline, but expect it to keep happening until i'm done (at least with the entry point articles). I have been at it for a week full time, and expect to put another 2 weeks in it. You can use that timeline to decide what to do with your feed settings.

What kind of time-frame should we expect?

The current documentation reads:

Offset: This causes the Orbiter to do backflips while reciting a poem backwards. (Just kidding. If you know what it does, please edit this section).

I need to replace that sentence. What does the option refer to?

Go and get one.
Well, I haven't decided which route to go yet because my budget is limited and I want to do everything all at once so I can close my walls.
I still have outstanding questions on the thread I started about it but I have not heard from anyone lately (probably because my name shows up on too many things since I'm editing the documentation - I wrote 3 more pages last night that I am about to post).
Could you by any chance answer them?

As far as writing the drivers is concerned, I can not make any decision from where I stand, but seems like the kind of thing I would have fun doing. but I have these walls open...
And it's getting cold...

Feel free to write a driver.
Ah, yes!
One problem though, I don't have a clue!  ;D

Who is the admin responsible for the configuration of the wiki?
We need some extensions in order to clean the clutter.

Too bad, because in this area, all you have to do is sneeze, and you blew one away. There equipment is everywhere.

I read about some old discussion about integration of RadioRA, but it was not clear whether anything has been completed or not. Seeing that the products are easily available, I was wondering what the status is  and if anyone is actually using it or knows if it is workable solution.

Maybe a higher number of administrators?

The above is all they sent me, and I can't afford the cost. Unless there is any value in getting the info, I think I'd rather move on.
You seem to know what's needed, please point me in the right direction so I can do it at a lower cost.

Is it possible for me to use the suppliers you mentioned? Do they carry US compatible equipment?

EDIT: I just checked my pricing: The list price for my installation was around 38EUR/light, plus around 450EUR for one-of equipment, like gateway and PSU. Doing a bit of shopping around, it is easy to get price down to ~25EUR/light, and around 250EUR for one-of equipment.

Where did you source this?

- whole house music

either get squeezeboxes for the zones where you don't have a LMCE MD or use soft squeeze on the core with an audio distribution system

Can I sync the payers when playing music on multiple MDs while keeping the ability to play different tunes when the situation changes? (in other words, are the players independent by syncable on demand?)

  • Dedicated power circuit for the wiring closet with your equipment.Run the light fixture in the closet off of a separate circuit. (In case you have to do power work in there, you still have light to work by)

Does the dedicated circuit for the equipment, or both need to carry the load of the lights in the case of KNX?

I run my KNX wires directly alongside my 230V power cables, my CAT6 and CAT7 cabling, 3x 30m speaker wire, and the low voltage stuff from my 30kWh peak PV installation, without any problems.
What gage / type of wire ate the KNX wires?
The KNX cable is specified to be put together with high voltage (230V) cabling.
Does this mean they are regular electric wires? (control cables)
