Wi-Fi cameras
« on: August 04, 2013, 07:43:03 AM »
With the recent events at X10 the Airsight cameras are no longer being sold.
These cameras were similar to those produced by Easyn, Foscam and others.
Most users ended up using BlueIrus for controlling these as the software was far more advanced.
However it is possible to use the SDK found at Foscam to control these.

I've started to add code to PcCompanion (PCC) to use these cameras.
Currently the old video input type can be used and this support will be continued in PCC
X10 turned me into a Software programmer.
A warning label should have been added ;)

Bad news indeed!

I'm just beginning to replace my useless Uniden system with the Airsight cams I got about a year ago, and need a few more.

Hopefully someone will step in to fill the market vacuum.

I'm also struggling with weatherproofing the XC36As because the leds wash out the image at night through a window.

I have some glass domes from anniversary clocks that I'm thinking about trying, but now that the supply has dried up for the cameras, a more cautious approach is needed.

Any ideas for "Wet Coast" applications?

Glad you started this forum,

Thanks,

Dan M.

Easyn and  Agasio makes some outdoor and indoor cameras that are exactly like the Airsights.
I believe Foscam (Not sure which site) sells a external lR light which would work place on the other side of the glass.
I went with outdoor cameras so I don't have IR issues. ;)

Authinx has recreated the Airsight camera line.
Although these are called Airsights they said to be of a higher quality ??? ::)
Authinix is willing to listen to suggestions for improvements to these new cameras capabilities (software).
I started a thread on the X10 forum so anyone can make suggestions.
The new owners are watching this thread hoping to make these cameras unique.
I plan to email suggestions to the owner as well so nothing gets over looked. ;)
I'm thinking of getting one of these so I can review it, posting screen shots, and possibly a live link to help those without one to maybe make some improvement suggestions.
Active users on my forum can help me decide which camera to get (indoor or outdoor) ;)
