i created 3 groups of cams that work with this app, but only group 1 has full functionality.
not all foscam cameras use the same CGI commands. there are 2 kinds of CGI. the older cams that use the old CGI are not supported by this app.
if your cam isnt here it can still work, but i dont know the type. to check if your cam is working with this app, give this url in your browser:
if this gives back info then you can use the app. please contact me to add the camtype.
if all requirements are met you can install the app.

you can chose to let the app recreate the dashboard every time you start the app or when you are satisfied with the dashboard, or want to customize it, then set create_dashboard to false after the first time.
if you have done everything right you now can start your dashboard like http://your_dashboard_ip:dashboard_poort/dashboard_file_name
