Is it possible to run PHP scripts in the camera? Now now it is. PHP Me is a powerful and flexible tool to add specific behavior beyond the camera capabilities without ACAP development. Scripts can be triggered with a button in the user interface, URL or by a camera event (e.g. timer recurrence, digital in-port or analytics add-ons).
If the script is initiated manually, a browser window is opened and the result is displayed. If the script is triggered by an event the script will run silent and all output is ignored. It is possible to provide arguments to the script when it is triggered by an event.
- In order to get a reasonable size of the cross-compiled version of PHP some functionality had to be excluded. You may not be able to do everything PHP is able to offer.
- PHP does not integrate into the web server. This means that you cannot write stand-alone PHP CGI without PHP Me.
- The EAP file is about 2 MB and will expand to about 6 MB during installation. This may be a limitation if you have other large add-ons installed on the camera.
- Axis camera based on ARTPEC 4/5 or ARM
- Camera FW 5.60 or later
