Above all, thank you all for creating Pluto!
I installed successfully Pluto and I am trying to configure it to do specific tasks regarding first surveillance and later sensor driven process monitoring.
Let's focus on the first: I encountered my first problems adding an Ip Camera not listed in the Device Template
section of the Admin Website.
My hardware is a Cam made by 3JTech (http://www.3jtech.com.tw/ip_cameras.htm
) model eCAMit III.
The cam was previously configured via serial port on another pc it was in use on and brings an internal static IP.
It does not work with DHCP.
I plugged it into system directly into the Core (a standalone/hybrid) and I can ping the Ip address of the cam.
I followed this path:
1 - I created a Device Template (e-camit) with a new manufacturer, (3jtech) associated with the Category #93,
(Peripherals - Surveillance cameras).
The device is controled via DCE Router and Orbiter.
I marked it as an Audio/video device and "is IP Based" and inherit mac from pc.
Device(string): what to write here? I wrote "ecamera"
I checked "Camera commands", "Ruby internal Commands" and "Generic IO Commands" (I set the value "1" in the On command) .
2 - Then I added a new top level device:
I named it "Camera1", associated to the device template "e-camit" .
It's controlled via "OnScreen Orbiter".
IP Address: 192.168......
Mac Address: this field is blank, who has to fill it? Does Pluto or I?
Ignore On/Off: off
ok reconfigure device
I left all other parameters blank except for:
I'd like to know wether my configuration is good or not. I'm sure it is NOT.
3 - Then I edited a new scenario under the Security scenarios:
Description: camera1 scenario
Array type: Security scenarios
Design Obj: blank
Template: Security - View camera
Associated to the room "Cucina"
Camera1 - Cucina: Get Video Frame and I left all the fields blank. What to do?
Once done this, I regenerate my on screen Orbiter and the result was that a new button appeared under the Security Scenario.
scenario in the room Cucina. If I click on this button nothing happens.
I tried to do the same with a cam device/template created over the Panasonic IP cam model and it worked, unless that i cannot view the image from the cam.... at least here i succeed in viewing something.
Probably I misconfigured something previously well done and now it doesn't work at all... Any click on the buttons does not produce anything.
Please help me, even if I have few basic informations about Linux and programming (but not so rookie) and have a desperate need of using a system like Pluto.
I thank in advance the people who will help me.
With my kindest regards,
