Axis and Foscam are two companies that we have worked with directly to ensure the most seamless integration possible. These two camera manufacturers have been integrated with a Plug and Play (PnP) solution. The process to add one of these camera types is so easy, you will be able to do it in less than a minute.
There are several types of cameras we support, some that have a complete automated install on Sharpvue such as Axis, Sony, Foscam, Vivotek, Hanwha (Samsung), Hikvision, and others that require a couple of extra steps to setup (D-Link, Trendnet, webcams etc)
There are 2 main things you are looking for in your camera specifications:
- FTP - Camcloud uses the FTP to transmit the video or images. Check that your camera supports FTP of either images or video.
- A stream, either RTSP or MJPEG - You can then add a camera in Camcloud that is either Generic H.264 (for an RTSP stream) or Generic MJPEG.
