  • Errors now appearing using Netcam

    For years (HS2) and since upgrading to HS3, I've used this plugin. Lately, I'm seeing these errors in the log. I have a motion sensor which triggers an event that takes a number of pictures now 2 seconds apart.

    Jun-21 7:38:14 AM Warning Plugin NetCAM is not responding but it is still running, not restarting yet.

    Jun-21 7:38:07 AM Error Event Camera and Motion Take garage pics when motion detected plugin action failed:Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

    I don't kow why it's happening now as it seemed to work fine shortly after my upgrade to HS3 in March. The only thing of course, is that I have added additional plugins since - though, I have no resource bottle neck that I'm aware of. It seems to work for a while after a restart of the plugin...

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    I had a similar problem recently but I had been messing with my NetCam config. To resolve the problem, I had to delete the HS3 devices representing the cameras, recreate them through the NetCam config (Create HS Device), and then reselect the cameras in the specific events.

      Thanks for that. I was already familiar with the plugin since I used it for years in HS2. So I basically copied the config information and created the devices without issue first hand. The camera works fine for a while in the event after I restart the plugin. This could be a day or so. I can even just take pictures. But during the event is when the error occurs.
