Edimax IC-3115W (WiFi IP Camera)

Seems to work fine. These settings assume the camera is set to the highest resolution; adjust capture width and height if not.

Edimax IC3116W (WiFi IP Camera 720p)

Edimax IC3116W

I wasn't able to get it working with H.264 (the camera is dropping half of the images every few minutes -> Motion alert). However, it works fine with MJPEG. Overall, I have to say that the image is not too great and IR illumination is weak (compared to other cameras).

Source Type: Ffmpeg
Source Path: rtsp://XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX:554/ipcam_mjpeg.sdp?tcp
Target Colorspace: 24 bit
Capture Width: 640
Capture Height: 480

Edimax IC3110P/W (LAN/(WiFi) IP Camera 1,3MP, PoE, Nightvision)

Edimax IC3110P

Same problem as with the IC3116W when using H.264. Works fine with MJPEG. Image quality is nice - absolutely no complains, worth the price (abt 85 Euros in Germany).

Source Type: Ffmpeg
Source Path: http://XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX/mjpg/video.mjpg
Target Colorspace: 24 bit
Capture Width: 1280
Capture Height: 1024

Note: I have not tested the WiFi-Version but according to the manual they are identical (except for the WiFi connectivity, of course).

Edimax IC-3140W (LAN, WiFi, 720p, Nightvision, manual focus)

Works fine with H264 and RTSP-stream. Image quality is nice, night vision quality is really great! Price is about 95,- EUR incl. tax in Germany.

Working configuration in ZoneMinder 1.28.1:
Source Type: Remote
Source Protocol: RTSP
Remote Method: RTP/RTSP
Remote Host Name: USER:PASSWORD@XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX (if you choose to set up a user / password in the camera's user menu)
Remote Host Port: 554
Remote Host Path: ipcam_h264.sdp
Target Colorspace: 24 bit
Capture Width: 1280
Capture Height: 720

Edimax IC1500

The edimax IC 1500 delivers a strange form of motion jpeg with a little help from a little script on your webserver you should be able to view the motion jpeg stream in zoneminder:

function handlejpeg($jpeg) {
  if(strlen($jpeg)) {
    echo "--video boundary--\r\n";
    echo "Content-length: ".strlen($jpeg)."\r\n";
    echo "Content-type: image/jpeg\r\n";
    echo "\r\n";
    echo "$jpeg"."\r\n\r\n";
  @ini_set('zlib.output_compression', 0);
  @ini_set('implicit_flush', 1);
  header('Content-Type: multipart/x-mixed-replace;boundary=--video boundary--');
  $handle = fopen("http://admin:1234@<YOURHOST>/snapshot.cgi", "rb");	
  if ($handle) {
    while (!feof($handle)) {
        $buffer = fgets($handle, 4096);
        if(trim($buffer)=="--myboundary") {
           $CT=fgets($handle, 4096);
           $CL=fgets($handle, 4096);
           $crap=fgets($handle, 4096);
           $cl=preg_replace("/Content-Length: /",'',trim($CL));
           for($j=0;$j<$cl;$j++) {
