Hi Tuicemen,  I can get PCC to see them camera but I cant seem to get control.. the camera is (i assume) C1 being that it doesn't really have a control switch to say what house code to use and you program it with the pad... I didn't see any controls to Zoom in or out or focus on this version. Did get a picture tho :)  . Would be great to figure it out tho being these camera have a great picture on them and there a a few of them out there..
X10 address is that of the power supply for most X10 cameras this may be set to the default of A1
Since the X10 wiki is only partially up and I don't own one of these I'm guessing.
The camera remotes I also believe are set to defaults A1-4  House code changeable with the wheel dial  bottom left.
X10 turned me into a Software programmer.
A warning label should have been added ;)

The Power supply doesn't seem to have an address on it... (its a Vanguard unit) . It does have an A,B,C,D with couples with the receiver.   Ill play around with diff address tonight and see what i can get..

Is so I might see if i can create a APK to run from and android ...( LOL if thats not been done yet)

I'm Glad the added options work for you! ;)
I never created a web interface but you could use logmein or something similar.
Yes, TAC should be able to control this (though limited).
I had never thought of using it for a camera remote control. :o

Hey Truicemen ... Do you know if anyone has ever created a page with just the the controls like yours? Not that yours isn't great .. I just was looking for a way just to control the vanguard cameras (I have 3 of them) without all the other info...

I'm not sure if anyone else has put anything together just for the Vanguard Cameras.
Since your looking only to control the cameras it is doubtful a app exists for that as the user base is small.
I do have a few users that use PCC just for the camera control and viewing.
PCC has been build from user base suggestions, and can be loaded several different ways.
If your looking to do something different or have it load differently post a suggestion and I'll look at possibly adding it. http://tuicemen.com/forum/index.php?board=18.0

I did see some on Amazon.com, however, the prices may be a bit steep. Also saw a few other Airsight brands there
