email from IPCAM to logger without internet connection

smile Apr 2, 2022 11:04 AM

Hi to all

I'm researching, but before wasting too much time I prefer to ask immediately here. Can a CR1000X receive an email from an IPCAM without an internet connection, but only connected in the same LAN through a router?

I guess that logger or router should do email server?

In the event of an alarm recorded by the IPCAM, the logger must be informed to activate procedures. Unfortunately the IPcam has no digital channels and works only through folders in an FTP server and in the logger this does not work. Other suggestions are welcome.

Many thanks

I'm curious if you found a solution. The logger can be an ftp server but I've read that it doesn't allow subfolders. 

You could run an LAN email server on low power SBC (e.g. raspberry pi zero) for the camera and logger to communicate through but it'd be rather complicated. Can you poll the camera over http for alarm status?

communicating http with the IPcam could be another solution, thanks, perhaps more complex than the one I have in mind. I am interested in the solution of running a script (I think ready) in the router that can operate as an e-mail server between logger and IPcam. In practice, only when, if for various problems, the internet connection is not present and a hypothetical IPcam alarm could not be communicated to the logger, which is important for the safety of the site.

What about an ftp server on the router? Might be easier than an email server. It could then store the photos there and the logger could log in and check for a new photo? Or a script on the router could check for new files in the ftp directory and then trigger a http endpoint on the logger to do its set procedures
