Periodically pull a snapshot from my camera to the Hubitat file system

About 5 years ago, I was quite into writing my own apps for Hubitat, but now I have forgotten how to do it. I would like to pull the snapshot jpg from my security camera every 30 seconds and put it into the Hubitat file system so that it can be checked using the remote login. I know there is a driver called the File Manager Device by thebearmay that is listed as an Actuator, but I don't know how to implement it. Is there a walkthrough for coding/setting up a periodic action like this?

Just need to create a virtual device with it. The driver has an uploadImage command that takes 2 parameters - the URL to the image, and the destination File Manager name. Should be able use it from within Rule Machine (custom command) or webCoRE.


That worked like a charm! Thank you!
