It took a while, but I eventually recovered from the DocumentIO debacle and obtained an Axis 240Q video server. I installed it with some BNC splitters so my home security cameras will be recorded locally by my crappy QSee DVR, while 2 miles away at my downtown datacenter, open source ZoneMinder records the IP streams from the 240Q.
Anyone interested in pulling the video stream can utilize using the following details. I post them for others as well as my own recognizance. I hate keeping manuals around, even in PDF form… something about them just doesn’t sit right, like I don’t trust them. I’m pretty sure a blender manual tried to kill me last week.
