Cheap Chinese IP Camera find Snapshot with ONVIFER

Post by JHO01 » Monday 04 June 2018 18:08

I recently bought some cheap chinese ip camera's with ONVIF RTSP support, not expecting the snapshot capability, but....... to my surprise I accidentally did find the precious snapshot link with the help of ONVIFER

Install https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... ifer&hl=en (free) on an Android device and setup the camera.

Once the camera is detected, press test and the link to the snapshot stream is visible :

I think something has changed in the app, I can't get this information for my camera.

Thanks for this. I used this method to find the snapshot info for this Camera I just got off Amazon: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07 ... UTF8&psc=1

Problem is these cams can sometimes (or maybe "mostly", theses days!) only be configured through a dumb-phone app... Exit the good old web configuration page that did not need calling home because using your favorite navigator from your own LAN.

And even if I take care to only buy such http(s) configurable cameras, it's more & more difficult to get informations about this setup mode support.

On top of your router firewall that can prevent the cam from accessing the outside after configuration, I always setup a bad gateway (sometimes also needing a fixed IP setup) on the device itself.

As well, all theses chinese IP cams lack informations about motion detection (+ fine-configurable zones, otherwise the feature is quite useless, especially outside if you cannot prevent vegetation that'll spam you with false captures when windy for instance), FTP support for motion captures...

Only solution is to buy, check, and if requirements are NOK, re-sell...

Would be nice to make a topic about currently tested devices feature set IMO.
