Like the K2, the K5 also has a webserver, which can be used to access the SD card, change parameters or issue commands to the K5. Simply connect your smartphone, tablet, laptop or whatever to the wifi of the K5. Then you can access the K5 via web browser. http://192.168.1.254 This will give you direct access to the SD Card. rtsp://192.168.1.254 Using e.g. VLC, this will show the Live View. Looks like this To issue commands or change settings, they must be send as an URL to the K5. The syntax is... http://192.168.1.254/?custom=1&cmd=xxx&par=yyy xxx = the command or parameter you would like call/change yyy = the value you would like to set For exampe: http://192.168.1.254/?custom=1&cmd=2001&par=0 will stop recording. While.. http://192.168.1.254/?custom=1&cmd=2001&par=1 ..will start recording http://192.168.1.254/?custom=1&cmd=2002&par=25 will change the resolution to 1080p@96 (Front) and 1080p@30 (Rear) (see table below)
http://192.168.1.254/?custom=1&cmd=4004 will delete all files (there is no "par" here) I made a list of all commands I know so far, but there are still commands that I don't know what they are good for. I was also able to get shell access to the K5 by soldering some cables to the UART pads of the board. In case someone crazy wants to try this too.... Warning Do not operate the K5 with the top cover removed for a longer period, as the top cover/case acts as a heatsink for the DSP. You can see the thermal pad, which makes contact between DSP and top cover. You will either need an extra heatsink or to drill a hole in the case to lead the cables outside. You can read the pin descriptions on the bottom left corner. RX1 TX1 GND. So compared to the K2, the K5 makes is easy to get access. Connection parameters are 115200,8,N,1 (as usual) With the cables connected to an USB UART, you can use a serial console to connect to the K5.
