I bought this camera the same time I bought the OfficeOne IP900 cameras, but never got around to using this until now. The camera seems to be fairly easy to setup. Plug it in and it will get an IP address via DHCP. The supplied software CD contains some management software which runs on Windows, but since I’m not a Windows user, I haven’t tried it out yet.
I finally set up my NodePhone service on my FreePBX/Asterisk server after telling myself to do it for a while.
There wasn’t a lot of concrete information out there but through lots of Googling I figured out enough to set it up via the Web GUI.
The following settings are the ones I used to set up the trunk –
Trunk Name: Internode
Outbound Caller ID: Your Internode DID Number
Everything between Outbound CallerID and the Outgoing Settings can be left as default.
Under Outgoing Settings, I’ve used the following settings, however since my Asterisk server is behind a NAT, I’ve set
nat=yes on both Peer details and User Details. If your Asterisk server isn’t behind a NAT, you shouldn’t need those settings.
Trunk Name: nodephone
For Incoming settings:
User Context: [YOUR NUMBER]
For the Registration:
Register String: [YOUR NUMBER]:[YOUR PASSWORD]@sip.internode.on.net/[YOUR NUMBER]
These settings should get your trunk up and running.

python processes on one of my servers so that I would know if one of them went down.
I already had Zabbix and SNMP monitoring setup on this server so decided to have a play around with SNMP Process monitoring.

My last electricity bill that I received seemed very very high so I’ve decided to try and monitor my home’s power usage, and as an added bonus, I can also start IoT-ing my house.
I purchased one of these – an Ankuoo Wifi Controlled Power Meter and Socket – to start off with so I can determine the power usage of specific appliances. Later on, I’ll also get a full house power monitoring system, but I wanted to start off small so I can determine how much power usage I’m incurring for things like leasving my TV on standby.
