The HTTP Request Sender module in Xeoma IP security cameras software

Starting from Xeoma 14.5.19, released on May 13, 2014, IP security cameras software called Xeoma offers to use its HTTP request sender module.


This module allows to generate and send HTTP requests. It will perfectly work with the smart home systems or supplement your home security system. If you want to send motion-triggered requests, connect the module after the motion detector. The module will send HTTP request with configurable parameters to the specified address when it receives image. For example, when the motion is detected, the module will send HTTP request to the “HTTP switcher” module and it will enable other modules, for example:
