I’m trying to only have the camera connected when it’s needed (in order to save power), but if left alone for two minutes it turns off completely. Is there an easy way to make the camera not time out (i.e. a way to ping the camera every so often that reliably keeps the camera active enough to not time out, but also will not interfere with the camera’s functions on other threads)?
It would be best if this method was possible while the camera was disconnected, and stays disconnected. I’ve been trying to find an attribute of the camera to read while disconnected to make it stay on but nothing has worked so far.
