Foscam FI9826P PTZ control

Post by DomoUHT » Saturday 09 September 2017 23:54

to control Pan-Tilt-Zoom for my Foscam FI9826P from DomoticZ, I've made up 3 selector switches sending the appropriate cgi commands by json.

Took the cgi commands from here : ... V1.0.4.pdf

This camera has a rather good wide-angle view when zoomed Out fully. Zooming is normally found on the more expensive outdoor cameras. This one is for indoor only but has a nice 3X zoom functionality.

The PTZx selector is defined as :
(http commands are : [http://][name of FI9826P preset point]&usr=XXX&pwd=YYY)
You have to define and name the preset points in the Foscam camera webpage (which in my case is on local IP

Zoom1sec selector is set up as a 1 sec delayed-off switch.
(http commands are :

It takes about 4secs to zoom In or Out completely, so in ZoomFull the delay-off time is set to 5 secs. Note that Zooming is not stored in preset points (only Pan and Tilt positions can be stored and recalled).

Hope this will help my DomoticZ Soulmates.
