Cameras

You can use the GUI client to view webcams, public or on your LAN, and Video4Linux devices locally connected.
There is also support for controlling PTZ camera's like Axis, Foscam, Watchbot and Sony VISCA.

Camera can be created in the Interfaces menu ->Cameras-> Cameras

Cameras can be viewed and defined in Extra (section) -> Camera

No actions or triggers seem to be possible (ideas: "save picture" or "email picture" or "toggle infrared")

Google chrome will NOT show the stream (All OS)!

Extra view commands:

To show the camera views in the Domotiga viewer you need sometimes more information on the
URL path. See next commands for an older camera.

If you leave the rule after the '?' away the camera will give a live stream !
