IP camera snapshot push image


Recommended Posts


I have an exterior motion detector. I'd like it to push a snapshot of an image from the Hikvision IP camera in the area when motion is sensed. I cannot figure out where to take the snapshot of the IP camera image. I looked at the action panel for the camera and there is no option to take snapshot or store image. I'm on 2.10.6. I think I have to use the email notification as push doesn't allow images?

I went into the camera properties in monitoring and found "get snapshot URL". I tested it and it failed error 401 unauthorized.

My cameras are plugged into a cisco switch and I have the houselogix HikVision NVR driver. I can see the cameras and feed on the C4 OSD and my popups work on my touchscreen when a door bell is pressed. Just can't seem to figure out how to send a still image via push or email

Got it fixed - authentication needs to be digest and not basic. I have the snap shot URL but am sure how to program to take the snapshot and send it. I pasted the URL into an email notification message and I get the URL in the body and not the photo itself
