CCTV View Review

*** 13 Mar 2014: Version 1.1.0.0 of CCTV View adds synchronisation of settings as well as some minor layout changes and code improvements.

*** 22 Feb 2014: Just launched CCTV Monitor, it's based on this extension but without the popup view. Some of it's features: Options are synced between browsers, descriptions can be displayed in a transparent overlay, tabs can be set to rotate automatically at a predefined interval. Check it out!

This extension allows you to define up to 16 cctv or webcam urls. Every time the toolbar button is clicked it will show an updated version of the image.

I wrote it to be able to look at my cctv cameras with the click of a button. I use Zoneminder (http://www.zoneminder.com), an open source cctv monitoring system. you can either use the image url from the watch window or the jpeg stream url from the montage window. For still images just copy the image url from the watch window (should look something like http://server/cgi-bin/nph-zms?mode=single&monitor=13&scale=100&connkey=193577&rand=1314794770 and paste this in the image url fields on the CCTV View options page.

For streaming jpeg images you'll need to copy the url parameter from the video stream on the montage window.

This extension needs access to connect.facebook.net to allow the facebook like button.
It also needs access to tabs which unfortunately includes browsing activity, this is needed to allow the monitor page to be loaded and for the target links you can set for each camera.
