Sitecom WLC-1000 Review & API endpoints

As mentioned in my post about using openhab & WLC-1000 I have a few sitecom WLC-1000 cameras, and would like to tell you the things I like, and don’t like, plus give you some usefull urls I found during my research on how to use them with openhab.

UPDATE 04-12-2017
After IOS11 the mobile app stopped working, they said it would be fixed but still no update, so if you only have an ios device, you can’t install the cam anymore for now.. I currently use memu to see the camera’s (pc android emulator), I will let you know when the app starts working again

 

I bought the cameras on ibood for a discount price of €41 each, (including shipping), normally they sell for around €70, which is really on the high side for this device.
I had a Philips b120n, they sell for around €50 on ebay, which I feel is a completer product.

What I like about the Sitecom WLC-1000

  • Pretty good video quality
    at 720p 30fps, you can check the quality of the picture in this video
  • Video Storage
    Comes with 8gb microsd, for local recording, and connects to google drive, for saving motion /audio detection recordings on your google drive
  • Setup is quite easy

The things I don’t like:

  • Nightvision & led
    Sitecom has chosen to add a blue led on top which is always on, and the nigt vision leds are visible too at night, It is a bit too bright to use as a baby camera, I did tape off the blue led, but I still find it a bit brighter in a dark room, compared to the B120N, I will add a picture of the camera brightness tonight.
  • Recording & Push notifications
    The cameras will only record when motion or sound is detected, if you have this feature on, and enable pushnotifications, you will receive a notification every minute when you are home, you can’t set a timeschedule for enabling motion detection. so you are forced to manually disable the notifications or motion detection in the app when at home (unless you are using a script like I mentioned in my previous post)
  • mobile app
    The mobile app feels incomplete, logging in with google account needs to be done every time you open the app, would’ve been nice if this only needed to be done once, or once every week..

Conclusion
For the price I paid, I’m defenitely not complaining, it’s a pretty good little device, although I would like to get some 1080p cams in the future for outside, (I really like the price and quality of the Amcrest Dome Camera) for now I will keep these indoors, and have them recording when away.

Some nice Urls you can use:

Rtsp stream, you can enter in vlc player, to see the stream directly on your pc:
rtsp://CAMERAIP/live0 (low quality video stream)
rtsp://CAMERAIP/live1 (high quality video stream)

Change settings through posting to the XML API:
http://CAMERAIP/CGI/CameraSetup

For instance, to enable motion detection, post:

<Item><MOTION_DETECTION><ENABLE>ON</ENABLE><SENSITIVITY>3</SENSITIVITY></MOTION_DETECTION></Item>

Disable motion detection:

<Item><MOTION_DETECTION><ENABLE>OFF</ENABLE><SENSITIVITY>0</SENSITIVITY></MOTION_DETECTION></Item>

Disable IR_LEDS:

<IR_LED>OFF</IR_LED>

Enable Auto switch IR_LEDS:

<IR_LED>auto</IR_LED>

    Hello Thomas, thanks for the informations that you provides. Since the end of january it is not possible to use both android or iOS application to communicate with sitecom cameras. The sitecom company is on bankruptcy.

    I’m developping an application to manage the camera. Do you have any idea of the payload to use for pairing the camera with a given endpoint?

    Thanks for your help.

      Hi there, Yes, I know, I have 3 useless cameras hanging as decoration at the moment :(… I meant to do a writeup but didn’t get round to doing it yet.

      Your project sounds great!

      I’ll try and list some more information I have left out of this article (I have some setup urls etc..) tomorrow.

          hi there, it’s taking a bit longer to go through all my notes on my old harddrive, and the firmware, I made a start with the article, and try and finish it this week. I’ll keep you posted.

          https://www.thomaslang.nl/sitecom-wlc-1000-firmware-information/

          I did find some assembly code for a setrootpwd command, would you be able to decypher that? I’m not sure if it’s the complete function, and it will take me some more time to start decoding it..

            Hello Thomas,

            Thanks for your help. Yes, i can try to reverse the assembly code. I will make some tests and then i will start making an app, for the moment i have only made a python script that get pictures from the rtsp stream and upload it on a rest api. I’ll keep you informed and of course I’ll share the code.

            edit: can you post the code of the decryption function for the call of CloudmodeInfo ?

          • Thomas Lang

            the decryption code is in the new post as well https://www.thomaslang.nl/sitecom-wlc-1000-firmware-information/

            this is the assembly part I found, not sure if it’s complete:

            Hello Thomas,

            My sitecom camera can rotate, do you have any idea of the payload i should use to do that ? How can i proceed to find the payload ? I have made a java application that streams the camera output, the app allows to enable / disable ir led. I will put it on my git soon.
            Regards,

            For the rotate you can only flip the image vertically:
            POST to:
            http://CAMIP/CGI/CameraSetup
            then add raw body:
            ON

            btw you can set almost any value you get from the /CGI/CameraSetting result in the same way:

    Hello Thomas, thanks for the informations that you provides. Since the end of january it is not possible to use both android or iOS application to communicate with sitecom cameras. The sitecom company is on bankruptcy.

    I’m developping an application to manage the camera. Do you have any idea of the payload to use for pairing the camera with a given endpoint?

    Thanks for your help.

      Hi there, Yes, I know, I have 3 useless cameras hanging as decoration at the moment :(… I meant to do a writeup but didn’t get round to doing it yet.

      Your project sounds great!

      I’ll try and list some more information I have left out of this article (I have some setup urls etc..) tomorrow.

    Hi Thomas,
    I did also buy the cam via iBOOD, EUR 39 so not too bad.
    I want to disable the infrared LEDs but I am not a developer; what is the easy way to perform that http POST command to get the LEDs off?
    Is that something that I can do with CURL maybe? any tips on the syntax?
    I have to say that with your article the camera gets even better value for money, thanks!
    Duncan

      If you have Google Chrome you can install postman, you can type in the url there and add the raw post data (the xml string), remember when you turn off the leds the night vision won’t work.

        Thanks.
        I managed to change the IR setting using https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/httpbot-http-rest-client/id1232603544 but it does behave a bit different than I had expected (or maybe hoped for); the “IR_LED=OFF” feature seems to not switch the IR LED off but does switch the camera IR sensor off.
        The IR LEDs however stay on and as these also give a bit of visible red light this prevents the camera to be used behind a window as the glass will still reflect this light a bit.
        I am curious if it is actually possible to disable the IR LEDs via software, or if this requires a hardware modification (or black tape of course, but that isn’t that sophisticated).
        How did you figure out these API commands by the way? Are there more (yet unknown) commands?

          Hi Duncan, I just tried this, in my case the IR Leds really turn off, only the blue light stays on (that one needs a bit of tape, unfortunately there is no way to disable it)

          Try it with postman in google chrome, see if you get a better result (turning them on and off will make a noise as well)

          The post url:
          http://CAMIP/CGI/CameraSetup

          Set body to raw:
          AUTO

          The response should look like:

          OK

          I figured out the commands because when you enter a specific url to a file on your cam that doesn’t exist for some reason it spits out a piece of their firmware and that contains API endpoints if you look between the unreadable data 😛
