    Foscam s41 alarm linkage

    After setting an URL, when camera triggers a detection, will call the URL
    http://username:password@ip:port/jso...nd=switchlight.

    Anyway this could talk to HS4...if so any clues/ideas/thoughts

      I'm not clear from the information, if you can define the URL yourself.

      If you can then you could use the Homeseer JSON interface to trigger a HomeSeer event.

      Just enter the following URL (changing the IP/Port/Eventname to suit your setup):
      Code:
      http://<HOMESEER IP:PORT>/JSON?request=runevent&name=YOUREVENTNAME
      If you have a username/password set for JSON usage, then the URL becomes:
      Code:
      http://<HOMESEER IP:PORT>/JSON?user=USERNAME&pass=PASSWORD&request=runevent&name=EVENTNAME

        Hello,
        I also have a two Foscam Cameras and would like to also send my HS4 system a signal when motion is detected. Please tell me where I can get more info on the JSON interface.
        Thanks

          Jon00 thanks for getting back to me
          I think I'm heading towards the world of scripting... something that is new to me...
          What I'm trying to do is to turn off / on my foscam camera motion detection (via goefencing)

            Turn off motion for the camera
            http://yourip:88/cgi-bin/CGIProxy.fc...fig&isEnable=0

            I'm just not sure how to do a HS4 script to run these commands

              I suspect it's not so much a command that you run, but an http post to the camera.
              That shouldn't be too bad, as people send posts from HS4 for lots of reasons.
