    Iris CAMs working on ST

    Hey Otto Mation, I can and will do that.. but can't until we get home later tonight.. I did run them both last night.. but can't remember exactly what the details were.. I think my Network Piece looked OK. I had some question on the Wireless Piece was supposed to look like. Thank you for your continued help with it.. -joe

    Hi Otto Mation, Thank you for your note, Yes.. that's exactly where I set it the first time.. I tried most all the options in that area. came back to security=2.. I was able to confirm that when I came back to look at the wireless settings.. but still a no go for me last night.. I don't know why the error or message when I tried to set the password.. and that confused me. Not sure that it was an error, or just information. But it didn't seem to work either way.

    @Otto Mation Okay... so I end up getting the Blue Iris setup and working on a older (for now) Win7 pc.. It's pretty AWESOME software and was easy to setup too.. I was able to get the port opened on my ATT Router.. (works for BI, still not yet for TinyCam) so, life was good.. except for one of my Lowe's gen1 outdoor cams.. somehow lost it's higher resolution and defaulted back to the lower res.. Knowing that I can't log into it using the Iris Cam credentials to try to change it, (not to mention, have to get the ladder out and take it down) I've opted to just let it ride for now.. that was until yesterday when the camera dropped off my wireless.. (sounds like some other posts I've seen here or on your other link) After several reboots, it was still offline.. So, I end up getting the ladder and bring it inside.. plug it into my ethernet and it works fine.. just not on wireless.... so, I opted to try the manual reset option. per your directions.. it took me a while, but I was able to get it.. mostly working with one big problem.. I can't seem to get the credentials right to get it back on my wireless network. I picked 2... just as you suggest.. as I thought that was correct.. I know my WiFi password.. it's only 12 characters tho.. (and yes, a few are special characters) So, when it popped something about a WPA ascii password must be between 8 and 63 characters.. (tho, I was at 12 and it didn't like it) It dawned on me that I may need to enter my password in the form of ascii.. so, I tried that too.. while it seemed to like that.. I still was not able to join the wireless.. I checked my wireless settings.. but that passcode at the bottom is not what I expected to see.. I tried setting it, unplugging the ethernet cable. and rebooting it.. but still not able to connect.. I believe I saw at least one other who said he had troubles getting it on his wireless.. My 12 character password has always worked before with all my other devices.. (including these same cams) I question as to if it's my setup.. or if maybe the wireless died in this cam.. (which was my initial problem before taking it down) tho, I think odd.. In my research efforts, I did stumble across this document.. (possibly already shared?) It might prove helpful to others.. seems like a LOT of good documentation... when I checked the wireless signal, it showed 0 (zero) but I'd have to assume that was because I was not able to connect? (or does that mean that it died?) https://github.com/edent/Sercomm-API/blob/master/README.md I wonder if there is a way to change these camera settings from a program like or similar to Blue Iris? I have the one other Iris (gen1 outdoor) cam that I forgot to turn the IR back on. I was hopeful that I might be able to do it via a software client that is already connected.... since I can't do it via a webpage since I'm not able to log in with my Iris user name and password without doing a reset on the cam.. (and then I worry as to if I can get it back on wireless) does anyone have any tips or clues as to what I might be missing? Thanks in Advance

    I lost the camera resolution on one of my cams.. while I obviously know the user name and password, I'm unable to log into the camera via the web interface to reset the resolution to where I thought it was before taking my Iris Hub down. In order to factory reset it, I'm gonna have to get a ladder and take it down to try to factory reset it.. so far, I've been reluctant to touch it.. for fear of making things worse with the reset attempt, not to mention the additional time and effort to mess with it. I don't really understand why I can access the cam since I obviously know the user name and password.

    I'm looking for the same functionality with the cams.. I was hopeful I could still use the motion sensors to still trigger other devices in ST. Tho, I believe any motion triggers for recordings would more easily be done with TinyCam Pro. I installed that APP.. scanned the network and it found all my CAMS in a few seconds.. I just had to play with the settings.. there are 2 Camera Ports needed: the Web Port.. 443 (Default is 80) and the RTSP Port 554 (Default is 554) I had no problem setting that up in TinyCam while on WiFi... the more advanced settings for the Port Forwarding are on the second page for each Cam.. Default Ports needed for Port Forwarding are the same as above... but I believe you and specify what ports you setup for Port Forwarding on your Router.. I picked something higher.. like 2000 and 2001.. (just experimental) but can't get that to work yet.. (I figured best not to use the defaults on the Port Forwarding, but maybe that's my problem) As far as I understand it, I believe you need 2 Ports Open for each cam.. but ultimately, maybe just 2 ports in general once it's setup... In SmartThings, I setup just 1 Device Handler for all my cams.. that seems to work just fine as well, but the Cams load much quicker in TinyCam.

    There is an APP named Fling.. it's a free APP.. I have it on my Android.. you can see all the devices on your WiFi in a few seconds.. you'll see both the MAC address and the IP together.. Kinda slick.. and easier than looking for that config in the router (IMO) I shut down a few extra cams late Saturday before I deleted all my video on the Iris Cloud, and then pulled my hub, deleted my account etc.. and then yesterday, I realized I forgot to turn the IR back on, one of my outdoor cams. (it would have taken just a few seconds to do that before I terminated all my Iris stuff.. I tried logging into another camera from a web browser to see if I could, but it wouldn't accept my what was my Iris User Name and Password.. I'm not quite certain as to why not.. but didn't mess with it.. I still have 10 Iris Cams up and running with TinyCam... but still having issues getting port forwarding setup on my AT&T Arris Router.. NVG599.. I talked to AT&T last night via chat and they say they can see I have opened the ports, but I can't see that they are open with various tools (canyouseeme and another I found) Both tools are showing the ports I setup are not open.. (I assume something else needs to be opened up yet) AT&T was supposed to elevate to a higher level of support and they are supposed to call me later tonight.. (I'll believe that when they call me)

    Thank you.. btw, I put the TinyCam app on my Android phone tonight.. it's (currently) the free version till I see how it works out.. after the shutdown.. but it's a cool little app.. I'm not quite sure yet how to make it work with a secure connection.. (if at all) but it seems to handle all my Cam's pretty well.. (still just WiFi for now) I'll have to review the post to see if anyone has posted settings that work best w/these cams.. that being the tiny cam setting options

    Ah, so best just to leave them all connected till the night before Iris Shuts down... and then turn off the hub.. or leave them paired up.. just power the cams down maybe egh?? That way they will retain the information they were last configured with.. which I have well documented already.. Thanks for the tips on it..

    Ah, I assumed all that was gonna go away the end of the month and I wasn't going to be able to get everything setup before then anyway.. I still have several I can try to get into with the Iris Login and see.. assume that I can set a static IP address that will maintain once Iris shuts down then? If there is a benefit to doing this, I can easily repair them back again.... to what, shut them off to retain these settings so I can get back into them later then? (like after Iris is gone?)

    HA... not surprising tho, as soon as I removed the cam(s) from Lowe's Iris, they also lost the config (apparently also stored in the Iris cloud) and they actually also fell off my network. At least the wireless ones did.. I didn't get a chance to see if my hardwired persisted or not yet... So, that said.... it's looking like they will need the full hard core reset Otto Mation noted above.. I haven't had a chance to try it yet.. but I did review the post and it looks doable.. assuming I can get it to work with our cams.. (If I only had the time) I'm considering the possibility of other camera options.. or holding to see what the open source community comes up with on the Iris Cams.. I have several LN.. 3 of which I just unboxed so as to pair up, only to get $300 for all my remaining unpaired items.. Bird in the hand I guess.. but if anyone has interest in some (basically) new Cams.. I'd be open to offers. tho, I'd imagine they'll be dirt cheap in a week or so anyway.. Thanks for all the help here..

    Actually, it seems to be only 4 of my Indoor/Outdoor cams.. (4 of 5) that keep changing IP addresses.. the older cams seem to be holding the same address no problem. Being wireless, maybe they're dropping the connection & reconnecting.. Does anyone know how to set (I assume internal) static IP address's on a ATT Arris NVG599? Or do I need to get a better setup first? This ATT has actually been working pretty well for the most part.. considering all the Cam's I have on it.. 11 Iris and a Ring..

    Thank you, I'll check it out... At a quick glance, it appears I can do all of this after the shutdown right? Is there anything I need to be sure to have done before the shutdown? For sure, I want to unpair them all.. I also want to delete all our recordings before they axe it

    I figured I'd need to set a static address for the cameras.. but I'm not aware of there being a way to set it on these Iris Cams.. is there a tool or utility? I have captured the MAC address which I believe are also documented on the sticker on each camera, so as to figure out which cam is which on my network.. but I don't know how to set the cam address to be static.

    wow, I figured out my problem(s) I had been watching my Iris Cams IP addresses pretty close.. and they were fairly stable.. and staying consistently the same for the most part.. Tho, since I've introduced ST's and have most everything removed from Iris with exception of the Cam's my Cam IP addresses are constantly changing.. while they seem to be working with Iris.. every time I get them setup in ST.. (and working) the IP address changes and it breaks what I have setup. I'd almost swear someone hacked my network... I haven't had a chance to get a wireshark on it yet.. but fear that I may have to..

    Ah, yes.. Lake of the Ozarks.. and the infamous Shootout!! SWEET!! I spent a year and 1/2 in St. Louis on a project when I was with ABB.. (Chrysler) and I never made it to Lake of the Ozarks.. but I know how popular and how cool it is there.. Someday I guess.. My brother is a GoFast guy... (OSO member) running a 382 Formula w/Sterlings.. he's also an ER doc and has been the medical director of several Offshore events in both OH and MI.. so, yes.. it's in my blood too.. tho, the wife wanted a boat where she could use the head without dropping her shorts before going in to pee. (lol) So, we have a 3575 CY's.. while we have the same Big Block motors.. it's just not the same.. tho, we probably have nearly twice the beam.. (lol) But nice to meet a fellow boater with similar HA interests too.. just wanted to mention that we do have several friends with GoFasts.. memebers of Park Place Boat Club at Put in Bay. Also, on a sad note.. I know the LOTO has lost a few on this popular event.. specifically, the Pammy Boat... (Kevin Sellers) You've also lost Big Thunder.. and we lost Cat Can Do all in the last few years as well..
