This scripting guide is DISCONTINUED and only applicable to Axis video products using firmware version 4.xx.
Most Axis video products support embedded
shell scripting. It is, for example, possible to create your
own web interface, create scripts that start the buffering
of images, start the upload of files via FTP or SMTP, modify
the existing event script etc. The functionality
available may however be product/release dependent.
- Keep in mind that the flash chip manufacturer estimates the
number of writes to the flash chips to about 100,000, thus you
should avoid writing large numbers of temporary files to flash.
Use the RAM disk mounted on /tmp instead.
- Check the memory resources available before getting started,
some video products are better suited for embedded scripting
than others. Please see the Product Interface Guide below.
- Axis Communications provides NO support for application
development of any kind. The information is provided "as
is", and there is no guarantee that the examples provided
will work in your particular application.
