Embed your Sensr.net camera’s live view

Users have asked us for a way to embed their cameras in other sites, like the website for a business or a personal blog. This week we rolled out a widget that will let you do just that.  Just log in to sensr.net and select the my widgets item from the pull down menu.  This will take you to the widgets page where you can get the embed code for your camera.

The code looks something like this:

And when you embed it into your blog or web page you’ll get something like this. The live stream will be viewable on the page where you embed the code, so folks can watch your camera directly from your webpage. If they click on the “live view” banner at the top, it will take them to the DVR view for your camera. This will allow them to see what was going on in the past on your camera too.

Note that the live view only shows images as fast as your cameras sends images to sensr.net. If your camera is setup to only send an image per hour, then the live view will only show an image per hour. We recommend sending an image per second, but it’s up to you!

Let us know what you think….

    I have gone trough all the steps to connect to sensor.net from my foscam FI8905W, inserted the log-in credentials, ftp server and set to PASV with 1 second inetervals and ticked the upload image box prior to sending the images. No success.

    I have performed a test and and it fails with a “incorrect username and password message”.

    Any ideas?

      This means you are probably not using the correct server, username or password. Double check that the settings in your camera match those on the sensr.net site. (Make sure you use sensr.net not sensor.net for the server settings.)

      Hope this helps!

    Can the widget be made any larger?

    We would like a larger viewer on our website for our live stream. How do we increase the size of this widget?

    • sheffler says:

      Yes, you can add width and height parameters to the widget like this:

      <script type=”text/javascript” src=”http://sensr.net/widgets/live_view/8709c7e1ab/128?width=400&height=300″>

    Is there an HTML5 (iOS compatible) version the embeddable widget? That would be a great option.
