Doorbell -> Camera Snapshot -> Email.
I am trying to achieve the following:
- Someone presses the button on my doorbell, which triggers a rule. (already working).
- This rule should take a snapshot from my camera
- The snapshot should be emailed to me.
Step 1: The doorbell -> rule triggers works through a fibaro binary sensor. Sofar so good.
Step 2: I've added my camera (Foscam FI9853EP) and can view both the live stream and the snapshot, so communication with my camera is also working.
According to all the information that i have und foi should configure the FTP settings from the Dashboard into my camera. My camera should then save the snapshot to the ftp://my.zipato.com server and zipato portal should be able to retrieve the snapshot.
Step 3: I need to create an Send Message block, where i add an attachment from my camera, which will make the email contain the last snapshot.
The problem i encounter is that i can't seem to login into the ftp://my.zipato.com with the provided ftp credentials in thee Dashboard. My camera supports a test button to test the credentials, but it keeps failing. Using any other ftp program also doesn't connect. The connection seems to stall before i can fill in the provided username.
What i am doing wrong? Is perhaps the ftp site down?
