How do I set up a Mobotix T25, Mobotix S15

Please use camio.com/box instead.

DEPRECATED: These are old draft instructions that were not yet complete. We were investigating the usage of the IP Notify Profile as a better HTTP alternative to the use of FTP. However, we've switched to supporting H.264 RTSP streams only via camio.com/box.

Transfer Profile > FTP Profiles

Click FTP Profiles:

Add a new FTP Profile

For example, name the profile FTP-Camio, enter these values below, and press the Set button:

Name Value Description
FTP Server ftp.camio.com  
User Name paste your shortened Upload Token found at https://www.camio.com/token Use the shortened token.
Password camio Password is ignored, so this value doesn't matter.
Connection Passive FTP  
Streaming FTP Upload Off Camio relies on the motion-triggered uploads, not continuous uploads.
Directory Name frontdoor Enter a single-word camera name as the Directory Name (e.g. backyard, frontdoor, driveway)
File Name current.jpg  
File Type Video clip  
Clip File Type Single JPEG file(s)  
Clip Frame Rate 1 fps Camio analyzes frames at 1 frame per second.
Time Before 3 s Record 3 seconds before the motion trigger.
Time After 3 s Record 3 seconds after the motion trigger too.

Action Group Details

Click the Add new action button, enter these values below, and press the Set button:

Name Value Description
Action Type and Profile FTP - FTP-Camio Or whatever you named your FTP Profile above (e.g. FTP-Webcam)
Action Timeout 0 Do not timeout; keep uploading for the duration of the motion.

    Camio now supports H.264 RTSP streams only and the new Mobotix cameras support H.264. The switch to camio.com/box is is explained in http://go.camio.com/whybox and we've updated this article to explain that the old FTP/HTTP is deprecated. Apologies for outdated article.

    ive got the virtualbox working, the issue is I cant connect it to the mobotix camera. Do you have instructions that work for Mobotix cameras ?

    If you send the make/model (or even better link to manual), we will help find the right RTSP URL if the camera supports H.264 video via RTSP. We automate support via http://go.camio.com/rtsp changes. Thanks.

    Unfortunately, Mobotix says that model doesn't support H.264 according to https://www.mobotix.com/sites/default/files/2017-10/Mx_TS_M15_en_20170404.pdf.
