Making Iris camera work upload to FTP server (V1 and V2)
1 1

So this is simple but I am going to try and make an interface for this on the web portal but with the shutdown I don't know how long I will keep that up or use it. So, here it goes.

1.Get your camera username and password

If you have reset your camera here is the username and password for V1 and V2 (Tested it after shutdown)

username: alertme

Password: nFQTEm*s67uxuF**a2vAth7RoJ

If you have not reset then you can use the iris web portal (Before shutdown). Go to http://proxy.iriswebportal.com/cameras.html then double click the gear icon for you camera.

You will see where it says "Look like chrome has removed this support for embedded logins. Click here to login to your camera" Click on the "Click Here" This will give you the URL of the camera and log you in. URL should look like this. You should also see your camera.

2.Set FTP settings

Where are going to be sending the camera command using the API and URL. It is super easy to do. 

Set the FTP servers IP address. 

http://CAMERAIP/adm/set_group.cgi?group=FTP&ftp1_server=FTPSERVERIP

If this commanded worked it will return an OK

Set the FTP servers username and password

http://CAMERAIP/adm/set_group.cgi?group=FTP&ftp1_account=FTPACCOUNT&ftp1_passwd=FTPPASSWORD

If this commanded worked it will return an OK

Set the FTP path

http://CAMERAIP/adm/set_group.cgi?group=FTP&ftp1_path=/FOLDERNAME

If this commanded worked it will return an OK

Set events

THIS COMMAND IS FOR V1

http://CAMERAIP/adm/set_group.cgi?group=EVENT&event_pir=email:0;ftpu:1;httpn:1;smbc:0

If this commanded worked it will return an OK

THIS COMMAND IS FOR V2

http://CAMERAIP/adm/set_group.cgi?group=EVENT&event1_entry=is=1|es=0,|et=3|acts=op1:0;op2:0;email:0;ftpu:1;im:0;httpn:1;httppost:0;wlled:0;smbc:0;sd:0;op3:0;op4:0;smbc_rec:0;sd_rec:0|ei=1|ea=avi,0,1,1|en=PIR-HTTP

If this commanded worked it will return an OK

 

And you are done the camera will keep working with Iris too.

 I am going to look at the timer settings next.

@thegillion,

Any experience with flashing the cameras, or any tips on where to start?

I'd like to capture the motion events locally on my network, like I was doing previously. Obviously that's not possible anymore without flashing the cameras.

[SMBC]
smbc_enable=1
smbc_server=
smbc_path=
smbc_account=
smbc_passwd=These cameras supposedly have SAMBA delivery which should allow you to save directly to another machine on the network. I have not been able to get it to work, however.

In the logs I get either:

Samba Event: Failed to upload file.

Samba Event: Don't have permission to access the remote path

Actually, it works fine writing to a linux box.
