Export camera list/ip/configs?

SecuritySpy is working well for us, but I'm looking to add more cameras and move them all to a new subnet

I can see all the existing camera names, IP addresses, etc in SecuritySpy, but I'd like to be able to get that all in a spreadsheet.

Is there support for such an export, or a way to open the SecuritySpy Preferences export?


  • I'm afraid the Preferences file is in a custom binary format that can't be imported into a spreadsheet.

    The closest thing is the XML resource that is available via the web interface at https://address:port/systemInfo - this contains a bunch of information about each camera, and may provide the information you are looking for in an easily parseable format.

  • The xml file you linked to is perfect for what I'm trying to do.

    Thank you!

  • There are a number of tools I would normally use to help automate this, but they expect json, vs xml output.

    I'm not sure how much dev effort that would take, but it would help me keep track of changes to our camera system over time.

    Thanks again.

  • It's unlikely that we'll be adding JSON, sorry. I'm not sure what workflow you are using but there are ways to convert XML to JSON, so perhaps this is something you can look at.
