    Hi, I own a Foscam FI9805W Camera, I'm having difficulty getting to work on Milestone Essential.

    Does anyone know if this camera will work with Milestone?

    I've had some progress, I've managed to have got the Camera to connect and it's showing a picture in the MileStone XProtect Management Application.

    However it will not work in the XProtect Smart Client software, It says "The server has lost connection to the camera" and yet I have a picture in the Management application software.

    Here is something i refer to with foscam.

    Also found somewhere on the web:


    Foscam FI8905 (& Foscam 8903) works with the Universal Driver. It most likely will work to get the video stream from your camera as well (you need locate the URL for the video stream).

    Either check the universal camera driver guide (mentioned above) or this page:

    http://hham.dk/XProtect/surv.html

    Specifically
    Codec: JPEG
    steaming Mode: HTTP
    delivery Mode: Multipart Stream (and found that "Non multipart stream" works too)
    Retrieval Mode: Streaming
    Connection URL: videostream.cgi (and found that "video.cgi" works too)

    You could also get a new camera. These days even 4mp cameras are dirt cheap.
