Applications :: Multiple Ip Camera Monitoring Software?

Nov 5, 2009

I setup ip cameras for a lot of my clients, not to mention the ones around my own spaces, but I use a mac at home and the software that I use for them is Windows only.

I'm trying to find something worth while that will let me view the multiple ip cameras at once, just grid up the monitor basically.

I've seen EvoCam from [URL], but it doesn't appear to be true multiple cam like i'm looking for, you basically have to open each camera in a separate window and arrange them on the screen each time.

I'm looking for something a little more "once i've set it, that's how it is everytime."

IMac :: Best Temperature Monitoring Widget - Any Recommendations?

Mar 21, 2009

Looking for a recommendation on temperature widget. This new i5 is too hot to the touch on the top. Well I could hold my hand there but it is not fun to do so. So I want a good widget/etc that will give me an idea of how hot it really is. On a side note. I cannot hear the drive or fans in my new i5. For wow players, all options (including full shadows but no full screen bloom), it bottoms out around 27fps in heavy effects environments or fast spin in busy Dalaran.

Peaks are beyond refresh (in fact I may want to cap that). After a three hour session the top portion of the aluminum enclosure was too hot to keep my hand pressed to it so I am looking for something to convince myself I am not going to end up with a cooked iMac in a few weeks. Since my desk is in the center of the room there is no problem with air flow but I don't want to have to run the ceiling fan.

Intel Mac :: Camera Won't Work In Skype

Jun 11, 2012

Upgraded to Lion and now Skype won't recognise the imac camera. "Built in isight" is listed in the video prefrences but the test screen is blank. The Skype calls show a video icon with a cross through it and when I click it it blinks, then stays crossed off.

Camera works in facetime and photobooth (both apps closed down). Have restarted Skype but no change. Skype ok with Macbook Air, iPhone and iPad.

OS X :: Won't Work With Camera / Only Recognized In Safe Boot Mode

Sep 7, 2010

Samsung TL350
OS X 10.5.8, MacBook

I cannot get my camera to be recognized by my computer when I plug it in and the computer is normally booted.

* If plug the camera into my MacBook, Image Capture and iPhoto will not recognize it.
* If I plug the SD card into my computer with a card reader, the card will be read just fine.
* The camera works on two other MacBook Pros
* The camera will be found on my MacBook if I boot into Safe Mode
* The camera is found in System Profiler when the computer is normally booted, however, the information provided is limited.
* The camera is found in System Profiler when the computer is Safe Booted, and the camera shows the full amount of information about the camera

When I open the system log and then plug the camera in, I receive the following:

Sep 6 11:46:14 JoAlDe kernel[0]: USBF: 958.769 AppleUSBEHCI0x27b8800::Found a transaction which hasn't moved in 5 seconds on bus 0xfd, timing out! (Addr: 3, EP: 0)
Sep 6 11:46:19 JoAlDe kernel[0]: USBF: 963.770 AppleUSBEHCI0x27b8800::Found a transaction past the completion deadline on bus 0xfd, timing out! (Addr: 3, EP: 1)

From what I understand, this means that the computer is unable to see that the camera is a Mass Storage Device, thus it times out and is unable to boot it as such.

So I set up my system with the USB Prober and the associated logging file.

I ran the USB Prober on level 7 while I connected the camera.

I know zilch about reading and comprehending any of the results except this snippet really stuck out to me:

It occurred twice more:

3635.575 [5] Finding driver for interface #0 of Samsung Digital Camera, matching personality using com.apple.iokit.IOUSBUserClient, score: 104999, wildCard = 5
3635.575 [6] Matched: idVendor (8107) idProduct (4152) bcdDevice (256) bConfigurationValue (1) bInterfaceNumber (0)
3635.575 [6] Didn't Match: nothing

Just looking at this particular result, it looks like the computer is unable to identify what exactly USB device is being plugged in.

Intel Mac :: Firewire 400 Camera Doesn't Work With 800 Port?

Jun 26, 2012

I have a firewire 400 camera that i'm using for a project and one firewire 800 slot on my iMac (Late 2009). When I plug the camera in, nothing responds no matter what I do - tried resetting the PRAM and SMC. Compare this to my older iMac (Late 2007) which has both firewire 800 and 400 ports. I plug it in and it pops up using the underlying Quicktime controller api on either the 800 or 400 port no problem. So I figured after trying to install a firewire camera library (libdc1394) which I need for my project which didn't work, that it must be a hardware issue, so I took it to the Apple store. The genius at the store booted the OS (Lion) from a firewire drive via 400 to 800 cable (no external power to the f/w drive was used) and then using the spare 400 slot on the hard drive, he plugged (daisy chaining) in my camera and it loaded! So this suggested 2 things - my OS is corrupt or my card can't read straight from my device but why a hard drive in between would change this is beyond me. I came home and installed OS X on to an external USB hard drive and loaded up from it - so this is a fresh version of Lion, there should be no software issues. Plug the camera in to the I/O board of the iMac but load the OS from the external USB hard drive - nothing happens, the profiler doesn't detect anything at all. On a side note, I installed XP and Ubuntu Linux and they also can't detect it, which further suggests its the device or I/O board when interfacing directly with this camera. I've tried providing the devices with external power, daisy chaining 2 cameras, using a usb hub....nothing works. Just for good measure, I tried to boot Lion off the external USB on my older iMac and again, it worked no problem, which to me really narrows it down to the hardware. 

I feel like perhaps the port is a bit dodgy and when the genius daisy chained it, it worked better, but no idea why. Someone said I should get a firewire 400 to usb adaptor

OS X :: Remote Access & Monitoring?

Jan 13, 2011

So two questions (I will try to write out as best as I can, hopefully it's understandable).

1: Is it possible that while I am on a business trip with my laptop that if I needed to access my network at work that I can remotely access it to view computers on the network with abilities to grab files from a computer, check things / alter things, and maintain. If so how?

2: If someone is on my network is it possible to see what traffic they are bringing in or out of my network without installing a file on their pc / mac to know the site they entered, file download, etc.

Applications :: Monitoring Webpages For Changes?

Nov 25, 2008

I was wondering if anyone knows of a good app for the Mac that will monitor a given web page for any changes in content and immediately send an email or other alert letting me know. I don't care so much about the particular changes, just the fact that a change was made.

I was looking at Web Secretary, but it's a *nix app that doesn't have a GUI and I'm not entirely sure it would do what I need. I would rather have something a bit more user-friendly anyway, and preferably free.
