Small Cheap Chinese Camera

Post by axelbaas » Tuesday 13 March 2018 9:03

Hi Guys,

I'd just recieved my cheap small IP camera.

https://nl.aliexpress.com/item/POE-HD-1 ... 0.0.9qbjmm

Unfortunaly this camera does not have a option to extract a snapshot, at least not the easy way. With a lot of 'Googleing' I came by an Russian site with some commandos this camera understands. One of them is "/cgi-bin/jvsweb.cgi?cmd=websnapshot+1&action=snapshot" with returns a BASE64 encoded image, hidden in a JSON string.

" {"status":"ok","data":"data:image/jpeg;base64, (..) "
I've tried to convert this online to a JPG image, and that seems to work. But how can I add this camara to Domoticz, so i can use this as a doorbell camera?

Any ideas?
