  • Ping Cameras

    Can anyone help me with a vb script? I want to ping my outdoor foscam once an hour to see if it is online or offline.

    It keeps going out on me (once a week) so only way to fix is reboot. I have a zwave power outlet that will reboot, I just need to find the status.

    Thanks in advance...

    I would highly recommend using Blade's BLLAN plugin to monitor the camera (and any other network or internet addresses). This will create a device for the status of the camera. You can then have an event that restarts the z-wave outlet if the camera has been offline for x seconds/minutes etc. I do this for my last remaining Foscam also!

      Thanks for the reply...

      I actually have the blue iris plugin. It monitors the connection as well. But I still may use the BLAN for other things. Thanks for the heads up!
