ifetch-tools - A set of tools that can
collect images from ip based cameras, monitor collection process, and provide an interface to view collected history.
The current release has two components:
1.) ifetch.rb - A console tool written in ruby to collect images from ip based cameras with a conf file per camera.
2.) wwwifetch.rb - A ruby servlet to view collected history from a camera and monitor the collection status of each camera. The following feedback is provided on each cameras collection status:
- all well
- collection in alarm mode
- collection is offline
Cameras donated/tested for the project will be graded in to three categories as follows: Excellent, Average, Other.
|Average||IP3M-954E||Works out of the box for configuration. Camera exterior is well constructed and should last a long time.
* Had trouble getting good frame rate on image pull which is what ifetch-tools utilizes.
|Excellent||APM-J011-WS||Works out of the box. Camera web interface can now be utilized with Linux+Firefox so upgrading rating to Excellent.|
|Excellent||2100, 210, 206, 207, 221||Easy to work with out of the box, excellent frame rates, and tech support is very good.|
|Excellent||D-Link DCS-930L||Easy to work with out of the box and inexpensive.|
|Average||HNC320W||Works out of the box, inexpensive and sturdy. I only have a HNC320W wireless unit to test.|
|Other||IP-250E||Low fps on jpeg pull. About 1 frame every 2 or 3 seconds.|

* On the TV-IP201(P) can get duplicate frames on short padded jpeg pulls.
** On the TV-IP320PI it requires addon software that appears to be IE only for username and passwor configuration. All other settings I cared about I could set from a generic browser.
*** On the TV-IP314PI support was no help to find url for snapshot. Camera performs poorly on heavy url pulls.
