Features added November 7, 2014:

To read from an IP cam locate the http command to capture a single JPEG image snapshot for your camera. Or now with version 9020 use an RTSP string for your camera.  You need something like this:

Axis - http://IPADDRESS:PORT/axis-cgi/jpg/image.cgi

Sharx - http://IPADDRESS:PORT/snapshot.jpg

Foscam - http://IPADDRES:PORT/cgi-bin/CGIProxy.fcgi?cmd=snapPicture2&usr=[USER]&pwd=[PASS]

Exception: With Ubiquity Aircam set the camear to operate as http (not https). Enter the IP address and port number in SebecTec as follows: http://cameraIP:port

Snapshot commands vary from camera make and model.  Search the web for your camera snapshot command or contact Mike at for help.
