WebCam-Control-Center Manual
Part 3: General Remarks

 

  • If you have enabled AVI recording, the next motion detection and the next file transfer are made not until the recording ends.
  • Motion detection halts while a file transfer is happening.
  • All saved program settings are loaded when the program starts and saved when the program ends in the file WCCC.DAT.
  • If you are using IP-Cams, all needed settings are loaded when the program starts and saved when the program ends in the file IPCAM.DAT.
  • The selected files for the file transfer upload are listed in the file FILES_T.DAT ( in file transfer mode) and in FILES_MD.DAT ( in motion detection mode). You can edit this file manually. In the first line stands the number of included files, and in the following lines are the filenames with paths.
  • The selected files for the email attachment are listed in the file ATTACH_T.DAT ( in file transfer mode ) and in ATTACH_MD.DAT ( in motion detection mode ). You can edit this file manually. In the first line stands the number of included files, and in the following lines are the filenames with paths.
  • The mask file MASK_widthxheight.BIN is generated when you close the SELECT RELEVANT AREAS dialog, and it is loaded when the program starts.
  • Click with the left mouse button on the taskbar icon to make the applications window appear in the foreground.
  • Click with the right mouse button on the taskbar icon to enable a menu from which you can quit the program.
  • You can right double click in the preview window to alternately show and hide the main window.
  • You can press the ESC key to hide the main window.
  • If you have selected FULLSCREEN or ONLY PREVIEW you can left click into the window or press ESC to change back to the former preview window size.
  • To get the best image quality on FULLSCREEN, change the preview window resolution to the highest before you select FULLSCREEN.
  • All pictures that are taken will be converted to RGB-24Bit. This works better for the motion detector and the conversion to other picture formats.
  • The conversion to GIF and/or JPG works for all pictures manually taken, pictures taken using FTP/Email/Perm.Pic.Mode and pictures taken at motion detection. It does not work for the START.BMP and AKT.BMP pictures, which are generated when motion detection is running. Only if you want to upload the actual picture that triggered the motion detection, you should select the AKT.JPG picture for the files to upload and enable the conversion to JPG.
  • The text output works for all pictures manually taken, pictures taken using FTP/Email/Perm.Pic.Mode and pictures taken at motion detection. It does not work for the START.BMP and AKT.BMP pictures, which are generated when motion detection is running.
  • The REMOVE BMP option does not work for the START.BMP and AKT.BMP pictures.
  • The email addresses to which email is being sent are saved in the file EMAIL_TO.DAT.
  • No matter if the IP-Cam pictures has the BMP- or JPG-format, the program works intern with BMP. So if you want to take a JPG picture, by button press, in motion detection mode etc., then you have to select the conversion to JPG.
