Use the Panasonic IP camera as a template to make a new template.

If you look at the ruby codes for the device template, you'll see the calls for panning the camera, as well as Zoom. These are HTTP get calls that are simulated passing the commands for the camera in the URL.

Adapt these for your camera, and use posde's device template exporter to create a template that can be sent to us for inclusion into the next release.

You should also fill in the PNP records with the MAC address range for the camera. Use the convert_mac program in the pluto bin directory to do this.

A whole subsystem would need to be implemented for the audio functions.

Thom,
If I sent the IP camera to you. Do you have time to integrate all the functions into LMCE?

I charge $150/hr, adding the audio functionality, in addition to the camera functions puts the development time at well over 30 hours.

Are you interested?

Thom,
It's too expensive for me. I didn;t mean your effort didn't worth it. I just thought I can get this cameras functions work and share with others... Thanks anyway...
