    Greg Miner wrote a capture script around 2012 that worked well in this fashion for Homeseer 2.

    Thinking many other users went to manual events / script captures back then.

    I use to use it all of the time back then.

    Here is one described from 2011 for Homeseer 2.

    This script allows you to capture Webcam images.

    I wasn't sure if I can do this properly with events, so after I posted this here I posted this in the script section too.

    You can do this with a script but I am not sure that you can do this with Netcam.

    Thinking I did try many years ago.

    With an NVR capturing an event you can capture say minutes of an event frame by frame and just send a compressed video / twenty frames in one picture email out if you wanted to.

    More cams more pictures. IE: the two below are one camera out of three (there are three videos of each event below from different views).

    How do I take 5 pictures 1 second apart and email each one

    I am trying to have netcam take 5 pictures, 1 second apart, and send each one by email. When I try to do this with an event, it doesn't work properly.
    I have the event like this:

    netcam take picture
    send an email with attachment current picture
    netcam take picture
    send an email with attachment current picture
    ...

    I have tried adding a wait 1 second between netcam take picture and send email. Result I only get 1 picture. No idea why. Weird.
Working...
