Discovery class is the main class in the package. With it you can register for changes to cameras on the network and respond accordingly when a camera is found on, or intentionally disconnects from, the network.
/*** Start listen for device advertisements on all network interface* addresses.*/: void;/*** Stop listening for device advertisements.*/: void;/*** Triggers a new search for devices on the network.*/: void;/*** Register a callback that is invoked when a device is found on the* network.*/: void;/*** Register a callback that is invoked when a device intentionally is* disconnecting from the network.*/: void;
Device class is a immutable description of a camera on the network.
