    Amcrest imp722s plugin

    I made the mistake of getting the amcrest imp-722 bullet camera instead of the foscam FI8918W. they are the exact same camera but the HS touch camera set up only has an "auto set up for the foscam and it will not recoginize my amcrest. I tried to do a manual snapshot install by using the
    http://192.168.1.11:80/snapshot.cgi?user=xxx&pwd=xxx but it did not work

    Any advise would be appreciated.


    Just so you don't have to muddle through the entire thread... Here is the script that worked for this camera.
    Ok, I finally figured out what script to use... No thanks to Homeseer Tech NON" support!!! ((

    Have you tried usr instead of user? That part seems to vary from model to model.

        I just picked up an Amcrest camera and am trying to get it setup in HS.
        The get snapshot command is http://<ip>/cgi-bin/snapshot.cgi? [channel=<channelNo>]. I got this from the Amcrest API which is located at https://s3.amazonaws.com/amcrest-fil...GI_SDK_API.pdf

            not quite there yet

            Thanks Jeff..

            I am a real babe in the woods on this...
            So would it look like this? Where 80 is the HTTP port?
            http://adminpw)@192.168.1.11:80/c....cgi?channel=0

            I entered this into a browser and it did not work...
            Here is a pic of my IP config

              This works for me. I ignore the port and channel since they are optional and I left mine on the defaults.

              http://myadmin:mypass@10.10.10.55/cgi-bin/snapshot.cgi?

              If you try using the one below that has your IP address in place of mine you should get a dialog asking for your username and password.

              http://192.168.1.11/cgi-bin/snapshot.cgi?

              If you get the dialog, then you are at least going to the right page. After you enter your username and password, the command should complete and an image from your camera should show in the browser. The you should just try it with your username and pw.

                I'm using the Amcrest IP2M-841 camera. I don't think it makes a difference, but it might.

                      Still waiting for Amcrest and Homeseert tech support..

                      I send in a tech support ticket to both Amcrest and Homeseer to see if they could provide the code for connecting my camera.. still waiting ...

                      Homeseer tech support said they were going to get a camera in and then they would have it set up... zipo...

                      Thanks for checking...

                        if you camera is still on 192.168.1.11 and you try http://192.168.1.11/cgi-bin/snapshot.cgi? does it connect at all? That is the snapshot for my amcrest with your IP address in it. if at opens in browser and asks for authentication we can work from there.

                          Ok, I finally figured out what script to use... No thanks to Homeseer Tech NON" support!!! ((

                          http://usrwd@iport/cgi-bin/mjpg/video.cgi

                          I used the Ispy IP camera, Install "search" function and I gave me a list of possible scripts... this one worked for the Amcrest 720.

                          Here is a link to an Amcrest forum on the subject
                          Code for IMP 722s to Homeseer HS3
                          https://amcrest.com/forum/code-for-i...-hs3-t953.html

                          Now, can someone tell me how to actually View this camera on my HS3 software and on my android app.???

                            TCP port is set weird, should be 80 not 37777... all the scripts say 192.xx.xx.xx:80 << this must match your camera exactly!
