If you own a Pan-Tilt webcam or network IP camera that is not listed above that works with the latest versions of iCam and the iCamSource please let us know.

Thanks! :)

Bring the Foscam camera view to the front, then sweep across screen left to right - right to left, or up and down = pan / tilt.

Are you able to control your camera using the standard web interface controls? Also, are you running the latest version of the iCamSource, version 2.4?

Pan and Tilt works on the Trendnet TV-IP422W! Wow! Thanks!

One tip to pass along. Make sure you that in iCamSource you are using your admin username and password. In my experience with the IP422, you have to have admin privileges to do pan and tilt. Of course, made a contribution, too. Great work!

Next, how about adding pan/tilt presets?  ;)

Thanks for the tips ... I've added the Trendnet cam to the list. :)

As for presets, it's on our "todo" list.

I've got a logitech orbit AF, that works somewhat well on my mac mini server with an icam setup. Since there are no drivers besides mac os x's, is this feature on both platforms?

*update*

i've since then shoved one of my xp vm's on that server and gotten it to work successfully through there, so i'm guessing it's missing the functions of the logitech driver. Also, the logitech doesn't work nearly as well as the usb dumb cam i've used on the mac before. It sucks they won't create drivers.

I have a Tenvis cam and could not get the Pan-Tilt to work with the URL that gets suggested from the help page.  I was reading the help here and thought I would try FOSCAM since it was approved and used the video.cgi extension that was suggested and it worked!  I now have the pan tilt working great - thanks for adding this feature.

I've got a Logitech Orbit/Sphere AF and can't get the pan and tilt to function.  I have iCam 2.1.1 on my iPhone 4 and iCamSource 2.4.1 on my Windows 7 64bit PC.

JoeB72 - There was a bug in versions 2.4 and 2.4.1 that prevented the Logitech PTZ functions from working correctly in certain situations.  That particular bug has been fixed in version 2.4.2. 

You can get version 2.4.2 here: http://skjm.com/icam/iCamSetup2.4.2.exe

Please let me know if that fix resolves your problem.

Hey guys I am new to the forum but I just wanted to say that the latest iCam software 2.4 on my Mac is freakin awesome.

I had a Dlink DCS-930L and and DCS-932L and had them working great with iCam.  I came across an awesome deal at B&H photo that I couldn't pass so I returned these and bought 3 of the Foscam FI8918W.  They are normally $120 but are going for $90, no tax and free shipping.


    http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/780103-REG/FOSCAM_FI8918W_B_FI8918W_Wireless_IP_Camera.html

    http://www.amazon.com/Foscam-Wireless-Camera-antennas-Black/dp/B004UMN7KE - with 9db antennas


Set up was a breeze.  The cameras come with a CD (Mac or PC) and the only tool you need from it is the IP tool.  This is what tells you your IP of the camera.

Here are the steps to set it up:

1) Plug in the power for the camera and connect it to your wireless router
2) Open up the "IP Camera Tool" to get the IP of your camera
3) Open up an internet browser and type in http://"IP from previous step"
4) The login is "admin" and there isn't a password.
5) Now you can set up your camera preferences.  The important part is to set up the wireless.  Hit "scan" to find your network and enter your password for the network. (I had to hit scan twice for it to work)
6) Once you hit "Submit" your camera will need to reset (30 seconds)

You can leave your camera plugged in directly or you can unplug it and move it to wherever you want.  ***Remember that if you choose to use it wirelessly, it will re-identify the IP to the next available number. For example - Hard wired into the router it was 0.0.0.20; wireless it is now 0.0.0.21.  You can can always run the "IP Camera Tool'

Now start iCam and choose "Ethernet/Wifi".  For your address plug in "http://"IP found above"/video.cgi.  Your login on the next line is the same as your login into the camera.  If you didn't set a password then your login is "admin" and password is blank.  Also set the "Auto Config Router" button.

Start em up and it should work flawlessly!  I have 3 wireless Foscams running without an issue!

You guys at iCam are doing a great job! Keep it up! I'm not freaking out anymore about whether or not I closed my garage doors!

I would like to know if you support Sony SN30 IP pan-tilt zoom cameras. Thanks.
