NetBotz motion detection does not work with Pelco camera if HTTP is disabled on NetBotz appliance.

Issue:
NetBotz motion detection does not work with Pelco camera if HTTP is disabled on NetBotz appliance.

Product Line:
NetBotz Appliances Pelco Cameras

Environment:
All versions

Cause:
Camera motion does not work properly if you disable HTTP on the NetBotz appliance.

If you add a Pelco camera to a version 3 NetBotz appliance through pod sharing while HTTP is disabled, the camera will add and you can see video through Advanced View and the NetBotz appliance's web page. Since the appliance polls the camera to see if it has a motion detection sensor using HTTP however, we will never get that information and the motion detection sensor will not appear.

If you add the Pelco camera with HTTP enabled and then turn off HTTP, you will see the motion detection sensor however the messages for motion detected originate from the Pelco camera and are also sent via HTTP. With HTTP turned off, the NetBotz appliance will not receive the camera motion message and will not be able to alert. StruxureWare Central's surveillance will not know of this motion detection either so there will be no surveillance of this Pelco camera

Resolution:
Do not turn off HTTP as this port is required for communications.
