 Low Cost Web Hosting Service

Skype Telephone ServicesGet All My Foscam IP Camera Developer Examples With One Hour Of One-On-One Support To Implement Them Click Here

Even if you currently don't have a Web Server or Hosting Service. It's easy to start doing so. For as little as $5 U.S. dollars a month. Using Hosting Services like as just one example DigitalOcean's Digital Cloud SSD ("Solid State Drive") VPS ("Virtual Private Servers") Hosting Services:

Click For More Information

Which I used specifically for the examples shown in my prior article here. As to not be subjected to any resource restrictions by a Shared Hosting Service. Which I used for my other prior examples shown here prior to the last examples show in my prior article here and also use normally as well. You can do this without any need use or register any Domain name. Also saving money.

Where you can configure your own flavor of Linux systems and options. To do things like this and also store other data from your IP Cameras. Like your own FTP interface without being subjected to any restrictions a Shared Hosting Service may have. Such as blocked ports, memory usage, process usage and other limits they may impose.

These are the Web Server resources being used with one copy of each example in the last article being run at the same time



Above Web Server was configured for these example with:

Ubuntu 12.04.3 x64 1GB Ram 30GB SSD Disk 2TB Transfer per Month Bandwidth Maximum

Apache/2.2.22 (Ubuntu)

PHP/5.3.10-1ubuntu3.9 with Suhosin-Patch

vsftp ("FTP")

Telnet

SSH

HTTPS

MySQL

memcache

swap file

FFmpeg

avconv

The beauty about going this route, for IP Camera owners. Is that you can control every aspect of what software you use for your Web Server as well as stop/start the Web Server as needed to make changes. The IP Address is unique and can be used directly without any Domain name if needed. As the example here is doing.

The Web Server is your personal Web Server. Without being shared by others. So you have a clear view of the resource being used and also knowing that all those resources are your resources. So that you can do Web Server Tuning as well. It can also support as many Domains as you wish. In the event your currently have Web Sites and are under restrictions on a Shared Hosting Plan.

It's a great alternative method to store Snapshots and Videos for your IP Cameras, without the need to run your own system to do so 24/7/365. It also has built-in RAID ("Redundant Array of Independent Disks") so even a disk outage would not cause a loss of IP Camera files. After all the purpose of IP Cameras are security. So, having fault-tolerant disk storage is important. Even more so for multiple IP Cameras.

Click For More Information

I also wanted to set the stage for my next posts here. Which will be about providing secure real-time video from your IP Cameras and generating SMS messages, when your IP Cameras detect alarms or go offline or become unavailable.

While many IP Cameras have the ability to tell you when their ISP IP Address changes. None have the ability to tell you that they went offline and are not currently available.

Extended Access Restrictions for all Foscam IP Camera Models

If someone were to try to access the Interface that was not allowed to do so and they tried to grab Snapshots or Refreshed Snapshots from your Foscam IP Camera(s). There are Extended Access Restrictions you can implement and use with the Interface. To deny anyone access to the Interface directly. Even if they know the file location of the Interface on the web server.

Example ("Compare above links HTML source code to links below"):

http://107.170.59.150/foscam/FoscamChinaAttempt.htm

https://107.170.59.150/foscam/FoscamChinaAttempt.htm

The Facts

One of the downsides of accessing your IP Cameras over insecure Internet connections or displaying "Real-Time" image(s) of your Foscam IP Cameras in Social Media sites, Blogs, Forums, Web Pages, Instant Messengers or even in Emails as an image or as links. Is that by doing so, you expose and show your Foscam IP Cameras DDNS and Port or ISP IP Address and Port and User Id and Password credentials for your Foscam IP Camera.

This Interface provides methods that resolve the above issues with future versions and functionality to come. Even while using HTTP unsecure access methods to any of your Foscam IP Cameras.

Secure Private Use

These images and their very secure methods. Contain no reference to your Foscam IP Cameras Model information, DDNS, IP Address or Cameras User credentials on where the Foscam IP Camera images originated from or how they were obtained.

In fact. These methods can be used to check on your Foscam IP Cameras when you are using any Internet browser capable device that is using public or semi-private Internet access. Such as public WiFi access or even your workplace and other semi-private internet connections for your Internet connection at that time.

Where you do not trust or wish to broadcast ANY information about your Foscam IP Cameras when accessing them on any risky or potentially unsecure Internet connection.

Where by doing so. Could and can expose you to Identity Theft or other IP Camera abuses. If others could use that exposed information. To abuse your IP Cameras by changing their position and/or viewing their video streams at anytime and/or gain access to your IP Cameras configurations. Thereby and possibly ("Depending on the User Id Level you used to access your IP Camera when using those unsecure Internet connections") others could also learn your Email and/or FTP User Ids and Passwords for them. Why take that RISK on a unsecure internet connection when there no longer is a need to do so?

Note: Once someone learns where your IP Camera is located ("DDNS and/or ISP IP Address") over an unsecure Internet connection. While also having any valid IP Camera User Id and Password information that was exposed because of using that unsecure Internet connection. They can connect to your IP Camera and based on the IP Cameras User Id level and Password that they ("Sniffed") and captured over a unsecured Internet connection. They can also determine what type of IP Camera is being used during that ("Sniffing") process.

At the very minimum, they would have unfettered 24/7/365 access to your IP Cameras video streams anytime your IP Camera was online and still using that same DDNS and Port or ISP IP Address and Port and User Id and Password for that IP Camera, that they ("Sniffed") on that unsecure Internet connection. That's a "Best Case" scenario and definitely not the worse case scenario and for sure, not worth the risk.

Some corporate, workplace, Hotspots and other Internet connections or their proxies. May block and not allow access to ports other than ports 80 and 443. This gets around those blocks as well. Allowing you to always have access to your Foscam IP Cameras.

Secure Public Use

Here are methods to securely display your Foscam IP Cameras "Real-Time" in Social Media sites, Emails, Forums, Blogs, Web Pages, Instant Messengers and anyplace where you can include an image or links in your post. As well as your own web pages which can now include a "Real-Time" Snapshot image of your Foscam IP Camera.

Without needing to include or expose any reference to your Foscam IP Cameras DDNS, IP Address or Foscam IP Cameras User credentials. With or without your own custom text and/or date and timestamp embedded in the actual image(s) displayed.

This is an excellent method for example. To display a current single image or automatically refreshed images of any Foscam IP Camera. MJPEG or H.264 based, in Real-Time, on a web page at the time a visitor visits and views that webpage. Without giving up any information about your Foscam IP Camera location or user credentials. While and when doing so.

Download

Both these examples require having access to a Web Server with PHP.

In some cases. Web Hosting services do NOT allow access to non-standard outgoing ports. Meaning a port other then port 80. If your Web Hosting service will not open a non-standard port to your current Foscam IP Cameras port. You will be forced to use port 80 for your Foscam IP Camera, to get this to work. The php script automatically checks and reports if this is the case.

Here are the nine files required for this Interface. All in a .zip file:

http://107.170.59.150/V30/SecureImageDisplayV30.zip

These examples below are using a 160x120 and 320x180 resolutions for live demonstration purposes. But you can display any camera resolution for your Real-Time Snapshots or automatic refreshed Snapshots of your Foscam IP Camera on Social Media sites, Blogs, Forums or anywhere that allows you to add an images and/or links to your post. Including your Emails.

Examples

Both examples below are using the same Interface with different configuration options.

First Example - Simple Proxy

The first example. Simply pulls a current image from your Foscam IP Camera in "Real Time" and displays it on the web page that references it. Left is Foscam FI8918W. Right is Foscam FI9821W-V2:



The images you see above. Are Real-Time images that were just created when you loaded and viewed this Forum post web page. Not old images from when this post was created and posted here in the forum.

You can do the same on any Forum, Blog, Social Media Site, Web Pages, Instant Messengers and in Emails that allows you to include images and/or links in your posts. Including your own Web Pages.

Even if the you are not allowed to include images in your posts. You can instead include a link that when clicked on can display a Real-Time image of your Foscam IP Camera. With or without custom text included in those images. Without exposing any information about your Foscam IP Cameras DDNS, ISP IP Address, Port, User Ids or Passwords to do so. Example:

Secure Single Images Without Custom Text

Foscam MJPEG based IP Camera:

http://107.170.59.150/FoscamPullImage2.php

Foscam H.264 based IP Camera:

http://107.170.59.150/test/SecureImageDisplayH264.php

You can also use these same secure methods that do not expose any information about your Foscam IP Camera. Such as your DDNS, ISP IP Address, Port, User Ids and Passwords. To display your Foscam IP Camera using automatic Real-Time images that refresh at the rate you desire by embedding the logic in a Web Page or including a link in Social Media sites, Blogs, Forums and Web Pages, Instant Messengers and your Emails. With or without custom text. Example:

Secure Images Automatically Refreshed Without Custom Text:

http://107.170.59.150/SecureRefreshWithoutText.htm

Display Multiple Cameras With Automatic Refreshed Secure Images

Images Automatically Refreshed With Multiple Cameras At The Same Time ("Same camera being used for live demonstration purposes"):

http://107.170.59.150/TwoCameras.htm

Note: You can display as many Foscam IP Cameras, at the same time as you wish. Each configured differently or the same. Each with or without custom text and using any combination of Foscam IP Camera models with each being the same or different sizes. In any display configuration you wish. With ALL Foscam IP Cameras being displayed. Using these totally secure methods.

The Web Server is not storing any image file on disk, in the above example.

This means that if your camera was offline or not available. That no images would be shown.

This example is simply acting as a go-between for where the images will be posted and the Foscam IP Camera. So that the location and User credentials for the Foscam IP Camera remain private and hidden.

Second Example - Custom Text - Automatic Throttle & Fallback

This example actually does create a single jpg file for each Foscam IP Camera on the web server, which is reused as needed. This can also help you control web server resources when using methods like this unlike example #1, which will try and pull a image, each and every time from your Foscam IP Camera.

This second example, has many benefits over the first example, shown here.

1. It stores the last real-time image received from your Foscam IP camera on disk ("With any changes you configured") so that IF your Foscam IP Camera was offline or not available. The last image stored on disk will be used automatically for image fallback and displayed automatically. Not letting anyone know your Foscam IP Camera is offline or not available. Assuming that your image is not using a timestamp of course.

2. You can set the number of seconds since the last real-time image received from your Foscam IP camera was written to disk to get a fresh image directly from your Foscam IP Camera. So that you can better control resources when/if needed. Only getting a fresh image from your Foscam IP Camera when or if the image on disk is greater then x seconds old. Automatically throttling real-time requests to your Foscam IP Camera.

3. Allows you to insert your custom text and/or a date timestamp into the actual image and store it on disk. Technically it's also possible to add your own logo to your Foscam IP Cameras images displayed, with few changes to do so.

4. Privacy. Say you don't want real-time images of your Foscam IP Camera displaying all the time. You can simply temporarily change the Password for the User Id that the Interface is using. In the Foscam IP Cameras configuration.

This will cause the Interfaces real-time request to the Foscam IP Camera when trying to get a real-time image to fail. Because the Interface will now be using the wrong Password.

With the Disk logging configuration on in the Interface. Then the last real-time image from your Foscam IP Camera will be used as the image displayed.

You then can at anytime later. Change the Password back to what the Interface is using and real-time images from your Foscam IP Camera will then be getting real-time images from your Foscam camera. Instead of the last image on disk.

Giving you privacy when you need it. While not displaying empty images while doing so.

5. You can access the last image stored on disk from the IP Camera directly.





The images you see above are "Real-Time" images that were created when you loaded and viewed this web page not old images from when this Forum post was created. They also create a single image file on the web server for each camera, that is reused and updated when this happens and that file can also be accessed directly as well. If any of the IP Cameras above were offline or not available, then the last image received from that IP Camera would be displayed above automatically.

Again, with no exposure of where the Foscam IP Cameras DDNS, or IP Address that created the image is located or any User Credentials for the Foscam IP Camera that produced the image above.

http://107.170.59.150/ipcam2.jpg

http://107.170.59.150/test/ipcam1.jpg

http://107.170.59.150/test/ipcam4.jpg

If any of the above Foscam IP Cameras were to go offline or become not available. Then the last real-time image received from the Foscam IP camera which was stored on disk. Would instead be used automatically and presented. Instead of a real-time image. This allows nobody to know that your Foscam IP Camera is offline or not available ("Assuming that you are not including date and time in your images").

Only the last real-time image received from your Foscam IP Camera is saved to disk, when using the disk option in the configuration for the Interface. So there is not any file clutter going on with multiple images from the same Foscam IP Camera being saved on disk.

Note: If you use the links above to get the files created by the images above, multiple times. Your browser may cache the files when using the link. Because the request to get the files, are not a unique request. However, the images shown above. Will be unique each and every time your refresh this Forum post web page, because it forces the images to be unique.

Both of these examples are TOTALLY secure methods. Simply using different configuration options available In the Interface. Allowing you to view your Foscam IP Cameras over unsecure Internet connections as well as share images of your Foscam IP Cameras. While providing total ambiguity about your Foscam IP Camera Model and maintaining the privacy of the DDNS, IP Address, Port and User Credentials of your Foscam IP Cameras.

You can create different copies of the Interface configured to be used for different purposes for the same Foscam IP Camera and you can use this Interface to display multiple Foscam IP Cameras at the same time. You can also reference and use any images created by the Interface that are stored on disk as the last image directly.

Secure Images and Refreshed Images Using HTTPS

Note: Even with the Foscam H.264 based IP Camera models that do support HTTPS. There is no requirement to port forward the HTTPS ports for those cameras to use these HTTPS methods with this Interface. Instead the Interface will use your SSL certificate on your Web Site avoiding any certificate warnings. If you have a valid and not self-signed SSL certificate for your Web Site.

The Interface also allows you to access any Foscam IP Camera model even MJPEG based camera models using HTTPS if desired. Accessing your Foscam MJPEG based IP Camera models, using HTTPS is normally not supported.

This can be very helpful if you wish to add your Foscam IP Camera in HTTPS based Web Pages.

Please note the Web Site being used for the examples is using a self-signed certificate which is why you will see a warning when using the example HTTPS links below:

Foscam MJPEG based IP Camera Single Secure Image:

https://107.170.59.150/ipcamera.php

Foscam H.264 based IP Camera Single Secure Image:

https://107.170.59.150/test/SecureImageDisplayH264WithText2.php

Two Foscam MJPEG based IP Cameras With Automatic Secure Image Refresh ("Same camera being used for live demonstration purposes:

Two Foscam H.264 based IP Cameras With Automatic Secure Image Refresh:

https://107.170.59.150/test/SecureImageDisplayH264Full2.htm

Secure Profile Pictures

In some cases, if your images are sized correctly. You can even use this Interface as your profile picture in Social Media sites, Blogs, Forums other Web Sites and even with some Instant Messengers. Allowing you to have Real-Time images of your Foscam IP Camera instead of any static images you currently maybe using there.

Unsecure Methods

These methods do not require having access to a web server. The actual HTML code can instead be stored on any browser capable device or even stored as an Email attachment and accessed from any browser capable device as needed.

Here are methods that will work with ANY IP Camera that will simply display refreshed images of your IP Cameras in a web page at your selected refresh rates and sizes. It only requires 1 line of HTML code per camera:

Here are unsecure methods to display and access your Foscam IP Cameras while using PTZ ("Pan/Tilt/Zoom") controls in a webpage as well:

 Is Your Wireless Network Configuration Impacting Your Skype Experience?

3rd Party Applications For SkypeAre you using wireless internet from the computer in question?

If so, depending on how your wireless card is configured, it could be hunting/roaming for other Wireless Access Points in your area.

Even if your wireless card is configured properly, if there are strong signals in your area, on same or close channels +-5 channels, this could also be the cause.

If, in fact the computer in question is wireless, then try this utility, it will show you what other Wireless Networks are in your area and what channels they are broadcasting and receiving on, this will allow you to see if there are any same channel or cross-over issues:

Click Here To Download For FREE

Click the Picture To Download

Or Click This Link To Download For FREE


So......

1. Is the computer in question interfacing to the internet via a wireless card?

If not forget the rest of these below.

2. Is Windows managing your wireless connection? If so, make sure that you don't have that config set up for the card to look/roam for other wireless networks? If you are using the wireless card makers software to manage the wireless connection look for a similar options and disable it or limit it.

3. Are you current with the latest drivers for your wireless card?

4. Are you current with all operating system updates, what operating system are you on?

5. What channel are you on with your wireless network? ("Use the above free utility to check")

Are there other networks within 5 channels on either side?

Example:

If your wireless network is on channel Six, you don't want any other wireless networks brodacasting/receiving above channel one, or below channel eleven.

Ideally, If possible, You want a 5 channel separation spread on both sides of your channel for any channel you see with 802.11g signals.

NOTE: Look the the RED network, it is on channel 6, but...it bleeds over signal wise as far back as channel 4, and as far forward as channel 8.

So, if you have a network on Channel 8, it would bleep over signal wise, as far back as channel 6 and as far forward as channel 10.

You can see the signal bleed over even using the GREEN example, on channel 9, if still bleeds over the RED network on Channel 6. If the GREEN network was on channel 10, ideally 11, there would be no cross-over signal bleeding.

Worse, look at two wireless networks on channel 6, RED & PURPLE, those wireless networks will have many problems keeping connections, and will require re-broadcasting data packets in some cases as well.

Look how much stronger ("Higer") the RED signal is over the PURPLE on the same channel, it will walk all over the PURPLE networked computers, and can cause many retransmissions of data packets which can cause calls to have very bad quality or lose their connections as well.

Even chat messages might need to be sent/delivered many times before they could be processed correctly.

This can also cause loss of connections, depending how bad it really is, and how wireless cards are configured as well.
