RC8021 with Vera Edge
« on: December 12, 2015, 06:52:20 pm »
Hi,

I just received a Vera Edge today with the intention of repurposing my old ADT Pulse equipment.  I was able to get Vera to find my RC8021 camera, snapshots work but streaming doesn't work.  There was another post with a similar question that seemed to have fixed the problem, but I think I'm missing something.

Thanks!

Did you get this to work?  I have the same camera that I need to hook up to my system.  What steps did you follow for the initial setup?

I have a Lowes/IRIS RC8021. Yes I have a hub. V2.0

I wanted to access the camera directly by it's IP address.
I reset the camera but could never get past the admin user name and password.
So I reconfigured it to work with Iris again.

Then I discovered that the cameras details page on the IRIS app gives you the username and password, IP address of camera (which you should already know from your router - make it a static address). It also gives a streaming path.

Several commands on this camera were also listed at: https://www.ispyconnect.com/man.aspx?n=Sercomm#

I have successfully accessed my RC8021 camera directly. This gets rid of the 10 second lag going through IRIS servers  - the camera is now real time.
I use IP CAM Soft basic on my iPhone. It is in the iTunes store. I can view multiple cameras on my phone.

On my computer I use IP Camera Viewer limit 4 cameras. For about 90 bucks you can get the pro version and do 32 cameras.
Get it here: http://www.deskshare.com/video-surveillance-software.aspx

The IP Cam software does not yet support the RC8021 camera but has other Sercomm cameras. Hopefully they will have it soon.
I'm currently viewing 3 IP cameras and reserving the 4th spot for my RC8021 camera using this software.
