Looking for Outdoor IP Webcam for FTP (something simple please)

(1/2) > >>

flyingvranch:
I want to add a webcam for my website. It has to be able to FTP an image at regular intervals and overwrite the file with the same name every time so as to not fill up my directory with images.

This seems like a simple request, but I am having a hard time finding an outdoor IP webcam that will do that. All of the camera operating interfaces I have used so far are very confusing, want you to use their proprietary website etc.,  and I have yet to get a successful FTP from any of them.

Any help would be much appreciated!
Thank You!

Thanks for the suggestion! Does it overwrite the file each time so it has the same file name each upload? And does it actually in fact load a file at all? I am well versed in FTP (mostly) and for the life of me I cannot get my Amcrest cameras to upload anything even though their FTP Test function says successful. I do appreciate the help!

I guess I don't know enough about FTP to be able to say for sure.  It uploads something, but they seem to be timestamped YYYMMDDHH:MM

I wrote a post (https://www.wxforum.net/index.php?topic=43546.msg443473#msg443473) on how I set up my webcam earlier this year to include hardware and software I purchased. I use IPTimelapse software that has many options to include overwriting files. You can choose how often you want the camera to capture an image and then ftp that to your server. The filename is always the same, so it overwrites itself with each ftp. Here's where my file is displayed: https://novawx.dscloud.me/wxcam.php. Hope this helps with your decision.
