Software Dev / Re: Remote control AND data transfer

I tried to set up save to NFS (Synology disk station) from my Chronos 2.1 using 0.5 firmware and did not succeed.

Are ther any instructions how to set up NFS file save?
The manual referenced in the User manual explains SMB shares only!
Which user name from the camera is trying to connect to the share?

SMB V1 support has been dropped by many vendors for security reasons. So the Synology does no longer support it and I won't set up an SMB Version 1 share on my PC for the same reason.

Not sure what OS you are using.
On linux, I followed these directions to set up an NFS server:

This issues has been resolved with the 0.5 V software update.

I called using the number available on their site, and choosing the option to speak with sales/tech support. Called around 2 or 3 pm their time.

Software Dev / Data processing from RAM
« on: August 07, 2020, 10:04:24 AM »
Hi folks,

I am interested in doing some processing prior to saving the video, or even just the processed data, onto the HD. My current routine is as follows, using python:

1) Set camera parameters
2) Collect data (1 second)
3) Store data on a laptop HD, transferred via Ethernet (~40 seconds  :'( )
4) Reduce data (few seconds) and store it.

The bottleneck is currently occurring due to the transfer. I am wondering if anyone has had any luck in pre-processing data prior to storage/save request? The camera itself already has python on it, so I believe it should be possible. I am looking to accessing the data directly from the cameras RAM, and potentially processing it on the camera prior to transfer.

Any suggestions or hints would be much appreciated.

Thank you!

They are still operational, talked to them on the phone yesterday.
The supply chain has been kinda goofed up for a lot of different things, electronic components included, due to COVID. My order was delayed by ~ 2 months because they could not get the appropriate part delivered to them.

Thank you for the update! The development is coming along very nicely.
I am not sure if I was not able to find it, but is there a place where 'bugs' can be reported?
For example, saving the file using python/json confuses the camera, where it needs to be restarted. Frame number starts jumping around wildly.

post ='control/startFilesave', \
   json = {'format': 'h264',\
               'device': 'nfs',\
               'filename': 'test',\
               'start': 0,\

It appears as though the v0.4 does not come with the nfs-common package for NFS network storage, SMB is available though.
I was able to ssh into the camera (root@camera_ip, but prompted with the password. I am hesitant to post the root password on the forums, not sure if it is allowed, but guessing worked.
Installing the nfs-common while being connected to the interned did allow me to setup an NFS folder, which shows up in the cameras GUI. However, when trying to save a file, it hangs, even when the save is to the internal micro card. I am still able to ping the device.

Will provide a guide once all the issues are resolved.

Figured I would add that, trying to SSH into the camera does not work. It is asking me for a password.

Thank you for the suggestion NiNeff.

I have been trying to do this over the NFS option in the camera (util.->Network->NFS Network Storage) which allows you to enter two fields, Address and Mount.
The NFS is configured on the host (tried with a laptop and a desktop, ubuntu 18 and 16). I used the computer IP as address, and entered the path for mount, following direction from :

However, when I press the 'test' button, an error pops up informing me the "NFS share /var/nfs/general/ on ip_address is not connected!"
I am able to ping/operate the camera though. A bit lost at this point.
Hoping some one else has had better luck.

Hi everyone,

Wondering if anyone has suggestions on how to transfer data from the camera to the connected laptop? I can currently control Chronos 1.4( v 0.4) remotely with python using json, but having difficulty determining how to get data onto the laptop.

Thank you in advance.
