This option allows a user to remotely configure all Raptor settings
by transmitting configuration files to Raptor camera units in the
field from your PC or by sending text commands from your cellular
phone. Other functions include photos and GPS location
on demand, battery status, and retrieving error logs. This powerful function is
known as Configuration update Over-The-Air (COTA).
This requires a camera equipped with firmware version 2.00a or
later, as well as this version 2.00 or later of the PC PixController
Raptor Config software on a PC with Internet access. The other
requirement is an FTP server account. The FTP server acts as a
communication medium between the configuration program and the
remote camera units, as well as a repository in which a synchronized
copy of each camera’s configuration settings can be kept. In this
way, remote configuration update can be done from any computer
without having to worry about whether the settings are up-to-date.
Remote cameras do COTA updates on a user-selectable cycle of every
10 minutes, hourly, or daily. This is how often the Raptor will
“wake up” and check the FTP server for update requests. Four actions
can be requested remotely – Configuration Update, Error Log
Retrieval, GPS Fix Retrieval, and Remotely Triggered Image
The COTA server can be any FTP server to which the user has access.
The IT department of most agencies should be able to provide an FTP
account that can be used for this purpose. Also, many Internet
providers include a certain amount of web space that is accessed by
an FTP server. FTP accounts may also be available through
Trasferum.com for a one-time $15 fee.
Raptor External Device Port
Raptor External Device Port
The Raptor Device Port is an optional port for the Raptor™
wireless cameras and UndercoverEye™ Raptor systems. This option
includes an external industrial connector and cable system for
connecting 12V devices to the Raptor system for control options.
The Device Port is set up to control two different 12V devices.
One device is set up for momentary control such as solenoids,
and the other device is set up for peripheral devices such as IP
cameras and gateways.
COTA Functions include:
- Peripheral Re-Boot
- Peripheral Power Up
- Peripheral Power Down
- Trigger Device
This powerful feature will let
your Raptor be used for new applications such as remote control
animal trapping such as trapping feral hogs or powering on/off
live streaming IP cameras on-demand. The new COTA functions
include a 1-minute update cycle for fast latency control.
Control your Raptor remotely
with the COTA tab in the PC Setup Software
