ONVIF camera - motion events

Joachim 3 months ago in Devices / Cameras updated by ComfortClick Support 3 months ago 5

Hi,

I have a cheap IP camera from China with what I think is a somewhat limited ONVIF support. I get the camera to work with ONVIF Device Manager, and it reports motion events as you can see in the screenshot below:

This would have been great to use as a trigger in bOS - and I think it should be possible as motion detection is one of the standard boolean values on IP cams in bOS.


bOS discovers my camera, and I am able to retreive a MPEG stream with rtsp. It claims there is no ONVIF support. I found a some older threads on the forum with people experiencing ONVIF problems, but no solutions.


Screenshot from bOS:


Notice the false value on Supports ONVIF

Hello,

when discovering the device, adding in the username and password, did you try pressing the Configure button so bOS tries to connect to the camera via ONVIF.

Best regards.

When I press Configure I get "camera does not support ONVIF"

I get this message even if the camera is disconnected

Hello,

when you added the camera, did you manually filled out the streaming url, or was that automatically filled out?

When clicking configure, the exact message is "camera does not support ONVIF"?

Best regards,

Hi,


The streaming URL was copied from ONVIF Device Manager. Exact message can bee seen in the log prompt in the bottom of the screenshot below

Hello,

we'll contact you directly so we can arrange a remote session and try to resolve this problem.

Best regards.
