I don't have any problem to have email alert, however the capture is not 720p, it's very small.. No way to change that?

Also, does anyone here knows what is the difference between Alert Motion/Trigger/Vox (this in in the email alert header)?

PS: Forgot to ask... How is the SD card supposed to be formated/which folder should it contain. Don't wanna delete all now..

Ok so new issue.. After few hours/days, i can't connect to the cam, neither video stream nor admin page. However the router shows the cam as connected and reachable.. What could cause this? Is it defective? Any suggestion on which newer/better (but not different in price, not much..) to buy from china direct?

I do own Synology and record video from 3 Escam cameras - all of them Escam Peashooter QD520.
Took some tries and looking around the net to figure the configuration but in the end it is quite straightforward - the trick is:

While not changing such setting on the IP Cam itself (it stays default from this perspective) you need to change port on Synology Surveillance Station to 8899.

Other topic: how do you read SD videos with another software than camera soft ? The player delivered on CD is not working (only sound, black screen)

Thanks a lot for your answers.

Anyone knows how to read the records without the escam app?

If you still want to add ESCAM camera via custom_vendors.xml, you need to change vendor name in the file to ESCAM2 or whatever (not ESCAM used by the app internally).

1-w audio should work via RTSP. Let me know if it works.
Audio is available in tinyCam Monitor PRO

Ah, I only just saw this - I wondered why I kept getting import errors
Thanks for updating for the cam; I've got the paid (Amazon, I think) version of the app as it's an excellent program. If you ever need something tested on the camera feel free to give me a shout. I could even set it up and message you an IP/Settings to view + test.
