Hi,

You can use the Pelco SDK - create your own software that requests a snapshot from all camera at the same time.

here is the Pelco Developer Netwoek link: Pelco Developer Network (PDN) | PDN Home

Hi,

On the Sarix web interface, under the settings, there is a tab for Events. You can setup a timer event every x hours. Next you can setup a handler to run every time the timer is triggered. The handler allows to uplaod a JPEG to an FTP server or to save a JPEG to a SD Card. You can select which one is suitable to you.

Please note, this will have to be configured per camera as far as I am aware.

As Plamen suggested, there may be some option on the SDK to do this as well in a more customizable fashion.

Hi Anghad,

This will make snapshots for each camera, but each camera will make the snapshot in different moment. The requirement is to have snapshot of all cameras in the same moment.

Hi Plamen ;             I am agree with Angad, Since in Sarix Web interface we synchronize it with our time server so it will give us the snaps at the same time

You are wrong. Listen to Plamen.

In camera menus you can choose only Time period. For example, Take a snapshot every 3600 seconds, but you cannot enter exec time, for example, each hour at xx:00:00. Another problem that you cannot set all 800 cameras at the same time. So it will take up to 2 hours to get all 800 new images.

Hi,

Please, see this discussion regarding how to take a snapshot from camera: Re: I have Spectra 1080p camera. I need support with it.

You can use this way from within your own multithread application.

If you have a computer/server then you can run this program:

SeqDownload

And use http://Ip_adress/jpeg
