Motion - Axis

Axis 2100, 210 series net cameras (and quite possibly most Axis models)

.. work very well with motion. Use this link in your motion.conf:

  • Axis 210: netcam_url http://CAMERA_IP/axis-cgi/jpg/image.cgi?resolution=640x480
  • Axis 2100 single jpg: netcam_url http://CAMERA_IP/axis-cgi/jpg/image.cgi?showlength=1
  • Axis 2100 mjpeg stream: netcam_url http://CAMERA_IP/axis-cgi/mjpg/video.cgi?showlength=1
For the Axis 2100 replace resolution=640x480 with its max. resolution of 320x240

Axis 241Q

If you want to put username and password in your link:


netcam_url http://username:password@AXIS_Server_IP/axis-cgi/mjpg/video.cgi?resolution=2CIF&camera=X (X is the camera, e.g Video1,2,3 or 4)
or
netcam_url http://username:password@AXIS_Server_IP/axis-cgi/jpg/image.cgi?resolution=4CIF&camera=X

Without username and password:

netcam_url http://AXIS_Server_IP/axis-cgi/mjpg/video.cgi?resolution=2CIF&camera=X (X is the camera, e.g Video1,2,3 or 4)
or
netcam_url http://AXIS_Server_IP/axis-cgi/jpg/image.cgi?resolution=4CIF&camera=X

Good luck

Axis M1011-W

Worked without problems.

Used:

http:// path_to_cam / jpg / 1 / image.jpg

Works very well in darkness (tough the image becomes b&w)!

Axis M3005-V

Worked without problems. Make sure when using WebService: Enabled in the camera setup, you must have synced ntp time on the computer running motion and the Axis camera.

Used: "http://USER:PASS@X.X.X.X:PORT/axis-cgi/mjpg/video.cgi?user=USER&pwd=PASS&resolution=640x480" for netcam_url in thread.conf.
