I purchased a Smarthome Wireless IP Camera (75790) and have it working perfectly on my LAN and WAN using DDNS. I have HouseLinc with 35 devices. The advetisinng says it works with HouseLinc easily. I have the latest HouseLinc Version 2.9.27. The camera does not show up automatically and the camera does not have a Set Button. Therefore I added it manually but I can’t link it to anything and the video will not display in HouseLinc (…not a JPEG image). How can I get this camera to be as functional as the advertising says it can be? I have not been able to find any documentation on how this is supposed to work. Any help would be appreciated.
Add /snapshot.cgi to the address. For example, if the address is 192.168.0.12 and the port is 3456, use 192.168.0.12:3456/snapshot.cgi
The camera is not an Insteon device, so it doesn't link to anything. You can have it send an email image, though, by placing it as an Action for an Event.

The /snapshot.cgi made the camera work in HouseLinc. Thanks for that. After reading the advertising again, I found that the 4 examples end with the same result "send an email image". Seems like that is all it can do, rather disappointing. They should have made this an Insteon device.
