New - iSpy Camera Server Plugin
« on: February 10, 2014, 04:28:56 am »
Goal: To allow Vera to view the camera images and provide limited recording control iSpy Camera Server for the commands: record, recordstop, and alert.

First - Install and Configure iSpy:
1 Install iSpy Server
2 Determine what Camera # your using in the iSpy Camera Window Title.
3 Verify from ANOTHER PC THAN YOUR iSPY SERVER that you can connect to your iSpy server live feeds and view a JPEG in your browser.  Fix any firewall or connection issues before proceeding.
Note - Keep all question regarding steps 1-3 on the iSpy forum as I'm not really an expert on the program.

1 Upload the 3 attached files in Apps > Develop > Luup Files (no need to restart, yet)
2 Go to Apps > Develop > Create Device with the Following Settings:
** Description: Camera Name
** Upnp Device Filename: D_iSpy.xml
** IP Address: YourIP:YourPort (i.e. "")
** MAC: Camera # or OID (i.e. "4") - Do not put the actual MAC of your iSpy server, just subistute the camera # for the MAC.
3 Click the Create Device button

* Reload Vera twice
* You should be able to view your iSpy camera in Vera.  You also should be able to start and stop recordings from Vera (i.e. when a Z-Wave motion sensor is tripped, start recording the local camera in iSpy) using the advanced tab of the camera in scenes (i.e. recordstop).
* Enjoy!

Note 1 - Create a new device  for each camera in iSpy by adjusting the Description and MAC.

Note 2 - You may need a subscription for iSpy Connect to access these features LiveFeed.  I haven't tested without a subscription.  Please let me know how it works for you.

This looks promising, I'll try it without the subscription as soon as I get out of work.

How did it go without a subscription?

Im in the process of setting up some HD cams and now to choose management software. iSpy sounds good, but i cant find a page showing what the subscription provides.

This plugin does work without a subscription, just setup a new IPCamera with iSpy and it's showing up as indicated in initial post.

Does this work with UI7? I have a few cameras using iSpy.

And is there a reason i can't find this in the apps store?
