I am not a frequent poster but check the board daily to see what I might learn. I am hoping someone can help with this issue.
I have 4 webcams; two are USB types and two are wired network cameras. One of the network cameras (a D-link DCS-1000) has been powered from a UPS for a few years; the other (a Hawking HNC300) was powered from a normal outlet. Both network cameras have been in use for several years in their respective locations.
I use the internal FTP option for both network cameras to send images to my webpage every 10 minutes from 6am to 10pm. I also have webcam software that sends these images to a separate page. This set up has worked for some time.
Recently I added a UPS for the other network camera so that power interruptions would not reset the network camera. The first day that camera was powered from the new UPS it began to reset the image counter at random times in the day back to image #1. This spoils the daily image history for my 6am to 10pm webpage.
Over the course of the past 10 days I have tried to find the cause of the camera resets. I tried a second UPS with the same result. If I plug the camera back into a normal outlet, it works without any resets. I have made these changes from UPS power to standard outlet power multiple times with the same result.
I am stumped why the camera would reset while powered from a UPS units.
Anyone with similar experience? suggestions?

You can go back a few days and see the image stream was interrupted.
