Sharx Security VIPcella SCNC2606 Wifi Wireless

Has anyone has success using this ip camera with Vera? ???

Can you post here its user manual and the link that you use to get an image.
If it’s outputting the images in jpeg/mjpeg it should work with vera, if it’s using activex it won’t.

Haven’t found the user manual on-line. Amazon users rated this device well.

Product Description
Product Description
This Wifi b/g wireless moonlight night vision IP camera has its own built in web server.

You can view the video from your own local area network or you can configure your router to view and control the camera from computers or cellphones on the internet, without dependence on any third party web sites or subscriptions.

With the built-in microphone you can listen in.

Excellent MPEG4 video quality at a full 640 x 480 resolution with up to 30 frames per second for fluid, natural motion color.

For viewing or recording a single camera no software is required besides just your browser. For viewing or recording multiple Sharx IP cameras the included MultiView software supports up to 4 Sharx IP cameras simultaneously. Truly amazing to see the streaming video on your web enabled cell phone. For frequent use we recommend to upgrade your cellphone service to unlimited data, which costs just $15/mo extra on the ATT network. You can see motion even on non-3G phones like SonyEricsson w580i. If your phone does not support video you can see automatically refreshing JPEG images.

At home, you can use this camera with your laptop or iPhone as a baby or pet monitor, and the very high light sensitivity in “moonlight mode” allows you to view out from a window to see what’s happening in the street as long as there is some background light available.

For night vision in absolute, total darkness with no visible light, upgrade to SCNC2607 which adds infrared night vision and a higher quality, wide angle lens. If you need bi-directional audio to talk back in addition to listening, consider the SCNC2601 and SCNC2602W models. Wireless operation supports WEP, WPA, WPA2 encryption.

Connect your camera to Vera’s Network and then enable Tech Support and send us a trouble report.
I’ll have a look at your camera. Also put in the report the username and password an ip address for the camera so I can access it.

Thanks CJ

This is Sharx’s tech support response -


While we cannot send you the user manual I would be more than happy to answer any questions you have, in as much detail as you would like.

The camera can output images in 4 different formats at 3 different resolutions and 2 different protocols, all at the same time.


MPEG4 (with or without ActiveX)


Resolutions: anything from 640x480 down to 176x244
Protocols: HTTP and RTSP
If you like, you can access our demo camera at
If required, username and password are both “demo” (without quotes)

From the above it seems that the Camera should work with vera.
I can’t access the settings from the demo page. The user doesn’t work.
I’ll need access to your camera to get the url that you need to put in Vera’s Ip Camera URL Device Data.

I have the same cameras and the same problem.

The Sharx support people are very helpful, but I don’t know where to start. I’ve got the IP and MAC address entered for one and the port is forwarded on the Verizon FIOS router, but I have no image and no control from the web interface. I can see and control the camera fine from the local network and the Sharx software.

How do you access the camera? It’s working from Firefox/Chrome or only from Internet Explorer?
When you’re viewing live camera in the browser right click on the image and click “Copy Image Location” / “Copy Image” and paste that url in another tab.
It’s showing a picture? If yes paste here that URL, if not, find a way to give me direct access to your camera so I can figure out if it’s possible to connect it to Vera or not.

Chart321, did you and MCV’s developers ever manage to get this IP camera working with Vera?

I have the Sharx SCNC2607, which should be similar to the 2606 in terms of setup. I have it working with the following inputs:

URL: snapshot.jpg
Username: myusername on Sharx
Password: mypassword on Sharx
MAC: 00:00:00:00:00:00 (i input my real MAC address for my Sharx)
IP: (IP address and the non-standard port I use for Sharx)

That’s it. After entering those variables, it worked.

What I don’t know about, however, is how to control the motion control and other features of the Sharx? Can I control those Sharx attributes from my MiCasaVerde?

If you can figure out or find the commands to operate the pan, tilt, zoom you can modify the camera’s implementation file and map the PTZ buttons in Vera to send commands compatible with your camera.

See this post that details how someone did that for the Foscam PTZ camera:

It’s also listed on the .99 cent iPhone app “live cams” as being supported as well
