  • Netcam-mailing pictures

    SOLVED without vb script.
    I figured out that I can do this without scripting, using an event:
    IF Device XXX changes and becomes Alert
    Then the system will take a picture with the XYZ camera.
    Then Wait 11 Seconds
    Then Send an email with attachment: Currently: /Program Files/HomeSeer HS3/html/netcam/CurrentImage.jpg

    In HS2 I had an event that mailed me a Netcam picture each time a specific door was opened. This was done with the following Netcam.vb script that I found a long time ago on a Homeseer forum.


    Sub Main(Optional ByVal pParms As String = "")
    Dim pi As Object
    dim time
    time = timevalue(now)
    pi = hs.Plugin("Netcam")
    Dim files As Collection = pi.getimages("
    Netcam Name of Camera")
    If files.Count >= 2 Then
    Dim latestImage As Integer = 2
    Dim strFileName As String = files(latestImage).Replace("_thmb","")
    hs.WriteLog("Info", "File to send: " & strFileName)
    hs.SendEmail("
    MyMailAdress@gmx.com", "My MailAdress@gmx.com", "My image "&time, "My image", strFileName)
    End If
    End Sub

    This script doesn't work in HS3, Log says:
    Running script C:\Program Files\HomeSeer HS3\scripts\Netcam.vb :Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation.Public member 'Plugin' on type 'hsapplication' not found.

    I know nothing about vb scripts, can anyone adapt that script for me?

    You don't have to wait 11 seconds. I tend to only wait 1 second. That way it gets to my email quicker.

      It would be nice to e-mail more than 1 picture. I have an outdoor microwave/PIR sensor that alerts me when someone is approaching the front door. I also take netcam pictures during this event also. So e-mailing these pictures to my phone would be great. Can anyone think of how to do this?

      Thanks in advance,

      Ronnie

        I am considering buying the UltraNetcam plugin for that reason and so that pics from multiple cameras won't all be called "CurrentImage".

          I am trying to use the gmail setting in homeseer to send the image and it is blocking the sign on, anyone have suggestions for getting around it? I don't have an smtp server currently set-up in the house other than the typical gmail, icloud etc.

            HomeSeer doesn't use an SSL protocol that is sufficient for Google's tastes. Even after backing off the security settings in Google. I use ssmtp to send emails. It doesn't have to run as a service. You just call it to send. Google likes ssmtp.

            I keep a separate gmail account for emailing logs & HomeSeer stuff so my real gmail address is the To: address and my Logeater.gmail is the From: address. That way if someone gets the password it doesn't boink my regular email.

              Good idea on using a secondary email address. Any help you can provide on setting up the ssmtp? Is it a Linux only thing?

              Thanks
