Re: x10 cameras with EvoCam and Indigo

This is, without modifying the python code for the Indigo Web server, not currently possible. The problem is showing an updating image or video stream on the Control Page. Some folks have proposed solutions that show an image, but I don't believe the image refreshes.
I posted on this thread
how to use the Indigo Web server to server Security Spy or Evo Cam image files that update. Note, however, that it is served on a dedicate page and not embedded inside a Control Page.
Getting video or updating images embedded in Control Pages is a high priority feature though. So hopefully the next major rev of Indigo will support this better.

I'm not sure if they will or not. Perhaps if you used the InterView USB video input device it would work. I would recommend sticking with IP cameras. I picked up a couple of D-Link DCS-910s from Fry's the other day for $80 each. Not the best camera in the world, but pretty descent. And probably better than the X10 cameras.
I did have to use a Windows machine to set their network settings, but after that the Mac works well (including using SecuritySpy).
