How to add to your system
- Go to the webadmin, click on Show devices tree (at the bottom of the menu) and select the machine to which the camera is attached.
- Create child device > Pick device template and pick the Motion Wrapper device template (#64).
- Go to the Motion Wrapper device if it's not already selected, Create child device > Pick device template.
- Add device category > Description: USB Cameras, Parent: Surveillance Cameras, save, close.
- Manufacturer: logitech, Device Category: USB Cameras < Surveillance Cameras < Peripherals, Add device template.
- What type of device will this be?: It's a simple, generic serial device..., What is the name or model #: QuickCam Sphere, Add.
- Now go to Advanced > Configuration > Device Templates (in the top bar) and pick the Device Template you have just created (QuickCam Sphere).
- Uncheck Implements DCE
- Click Add a new controlled via category device, select Interfaces - Surveillance Video Interfaces #111 from the list and save
- Set Packages: to PWC Camera Drivers
- Under Device data add all of the same parameters that the "Generic Analog Camera #66" template has.
- Save and close
- Go back to the Motion Wrapper device you added earlier in the devices tree, Create child device > Pick device template
- You should be able to select your newly added QuickCam Sphere from the list now.
- With a bit of patience some software will be installed automaticly and after regenerating the orbiter screens and a reload of the router your QuickCam Sphere should be available now.
I guess you could skip step 3 entirely if you go for the Generic Analog Camera template instead, but where's the fun in that?
Unfortunately the camera won't move, I have tried enabeling the Pan/Tilt/Zoom (as well as the Camera Commands) Commands in the device template but that didn't do much. Basicly all that needs to be done is echo "<x-angle> <y-angle>" > /sys/class/video4linux/video0/pan_tilt to move it, which already works from the command line, but I'm not sure how to get LMCE to do it.
