Apexis APM J0233 WS IR (IR, outdoor, IP66)

Apexis APM J0233 WS IR
Snapshot from Apexis APM J0233 WS IR

Sometimes there are distortions when switching from Nightvision to Dayvision and back. (I have sent the camera for repair and since then it has not occurred again.)

Overall moderate image quality (see example picture on the right). I had to create a new user to access the image (needs only limited permissions).

Remote Protocol: HTTP
Remote Method: Simple
Remote Host Name: <ip of camera>
Remote Host Port: 80
Remote Host Path: videostream.cgi?user=<USERNAME>&pwd=<PASSWORD>&resolution=32&rate=11
Remote Image colors: 24 bit
Capture Width: 640
Capture Height: 480

Available resolutions:
2 = 160x120 (QQVGA); 8 = 320x240 (QVGA); 32 = 640x480 (VGA)

Possible image transmission rates:
1 = 20fps; 3 = 15fps; 6 = 10fps; 11 = 5fps; 13 = 3fps; 15 = 1fps; 17 = 0.5fps;

It is recommended to set Max FPS to 20.

Apexis APM-HP602-MPC-WS IP Wireless/Wired Camera

Features

Wired and Wireless Ethernet. 802.11b/g with WEP & WPA WPA2 encryption
1280*720 Pixels(1.0 megapixel)
Night Vision. 30 IR LEDs,40meters
UPnP
DDNS
Supports Firefox/Chrome (Push-mode, VLC and Quicktime)
Audio capable
FTP uploads
Email alerts


The ActiveX control, Quicktime and VLC plugins all use an rtsp stream. There is an ActiveX control file for Internet Explorer found in: http://<CAMERA_IP>/codebase/DvmHIPCam.zip or http://<CAMERA_IP>/codebase/DvmHIPCam.exe if the firmware is outdated.

RTSP Settings

Source
Source Type ffmpeg or libvlc
Source Path rtsp://<CAMERA_IP>/live/av0?user=<USER>&passwd=<PASSWORD>
Remote Method RTSP
Remote Image colors 24 bit
Capture Width 640
Capture Height 480

Notes: libvlc ends up with a segmentation fault in some installations. Source type: Remote and RTSP settings may work. I couldn't make it work, but I suspect that it was a problem with the capture size.

Maximum frame rate this IP web camera can handle is 15 fps at 640x480. The <USERNAME> and <PASSWORD> are found in the "Users Settings" section of the IP Camera's web setup page. Pan Tilt Control is not available in Zoneminder 1.25.0 at this time (Feb 2012.) This IP camera does not have a zoom function, only pan and tilt.
