How to... show live feed from camera on dashboard

Post by Wagoneermaster » Friday 09 March 2018 0:48

Hello everybody,

I have been looking over again, but I can't just get it to work. Such a simple thing as a small preview box of my IP camera on the dashboard. No switching anything, just a simple preview!

No scripting whatsoever, just adding a box, selecting a cam and done. Please help!!!!

hi,
1. make a new page in domoticz\www\templates nameit like: webcam.html and edit with notepad:

<br>
<h2>page name</h2>
<br>
<div style="float:center; width:520px; height:360">
<h2>Cam name</h2>
<br>
<a href="javascript:SwitchLayout('cam')"><img alt="video" id="imgDisplay" name="cam name" src="http://192.168.10.125:92/snapshot.cgi?user="user text"&pwd="password text"" width="480" height="360"></a>
</div>

2. add your cam in the domoticz setup cam with name of cam name from the page. then make a scene with this cam and use Aurora theme.

This are 2 variants how to add a cam to dashboard

check topic or wiki of aurora. It's really simple.
install aurora, check settings, setup camera, click on on dashboard.

Hello and thanks for the reply..
I installed the Aurora theme, I created a switch and associated it with my IPCam but when I create the widget I see a gray rectangle and only if I click on the small icon in the shape of a webcam I open the preview of my IPcam..
in the wiky page you see the widget that has the webcam image as background .. maybe I'm wrong?

Hello and thanks for reply..
I try to add cam in the scene but I find only the "button" that I created and associated with IPcam..
I create a scene with the IPcam button created but nothing happens.... surely I'm missing something..
but in the widget you see the preview of the IPcam or am I wrong?
Thanks

Can you see the image in real time, or does it only show pictures when triggering a scene?

Hello,
I can't see the image in real time in the frame..
I see a gray rectangle and only when I click on the ip-cam icon, a window opens with the live of the ipcam.
thanks
