Foscam FI9821W V2 with control

With the newer version of the Foscam firmware you are prompted to change the default login. I did this then added another user called admin. I'm not sure if this is necessary but I was able to get the camera to work with control.

Camera Video Settings:

Stream Type HD Mode

Resolution 720P

Bit Rate 128K

Frame Rate 5

Key Frame Interval 50

Variable bitrate Yes


Zoneminder Monitor Settings:

Source Type Ffmpeg

Control Type Foscam FI9821W (see note 1)

Control Device (Password) (see note 2)

Control Address IP-Address:88

Auto Stop Timeout 1

Note 1: Edit Foscam FI9821W and remove check marks in Zoom, Focus, White, Iris, and change Presets number from 16 to 8

Note 2: You may be able to use just the camera password or user=(user)&pwd=(password) Note 2 addendum: I was only able to PTZ working if Control Device was in the format of user:password

You should be able to use higher or lower resolutions but keep the WidthxHeight ratio within the 640x320 value
