Manually create IP Camera device

From MiCasaVerde
Jump to: navigation, search

MiOS can install some IP cameras automatically when it detects them on the network. Usually it's one of the cameras from this list:

  • VistaCam
  • Panasonic camera
  • Foscam camera
  • D-Link camera

However, if you have a camera that's not one of the above, or if your camera wasn't automatically installed, you can either add a camera using the Add camera wizard or create the device manually.

Here are the instructions to create a camera device. It is assumed that the camera is connected to the network and configured.
