Working in the security industry for some years I have collected some old hardware that i’m now installing at our house, both for security and for fun..
It also helps me keep track of my boys who are active, I mean…really, really active and it’s hard to watch both of them when we have “playground” all around the house. An video surveillance system gives me an overlook and helps me check and alarm if they “run away” :-)
I had some old IP cameras that wasn’t supported in LNVR(Lenel Network Video Recorder) that after some “hacking” of XML files for configuration could be used.
By studying XML files for other cameras and looking into the camera and streams and I managed to get the camera up and running.
The XML files are stored in: C:\ProgramData\Lenel\LNVSuite\Caps\Camera\
PS! As this is not supported I don’t recommend doing this with systems that are important to you!
To get the camera up and running I made the XML below. It’s possible to add more features to make an more advanced integration, but this is all I need to get the video stream.
