New and improved features in AbelCam 4.2

  • Use date/time substitutions for file name in

    • Local Save
    • FTP Upload
    • Video Save

  • Exclude selected cameras from web server
    the Capture Device configuration form has a new checkbox 'Do not use for web server'
    if this is checked, the camera won't be shown on the web pages generated by the builtin web server.
    The camera will still be configurable through the web administration pages.
    Use this, if you have cameras to monitor private areas

  • Organize Local Save and FTP Upload by Date/Time
    The date/time substitutions are now supported for the path used in Local Save and/or FTP Upload.
    Example:c:\AbelCam\Cam0\#yyyy\#MM\#dd will create the folder structure when running 2011-01-29 until 2011-02-04
    Folders are created when a image is to be stored by Local Save or FTP Upload.
    When you use those substitutions, whe housekeeping features are not available.


  • Execute Command on Local Save
      If you want to execute commands when motion has been detected there's now a simple solution.
    The command to be executed can be a batch file or any executable. Remember: it should be terminated before the next save, or you're going to run out of resources.
