Re: How to disable PTZ motion detection durning camera movement

@Alec This thread asks the same question that the very first users of PTZ cameras had when combined with motion recording.... since basic motion detection is all about counting RGB color changes in pixels over time, a false trigger is created any time a move command is sent to a ptz camera. This is ...

Re: Why might analysis images not be available?

You can export the event as an mp4 then play it back with ffserver. Zoneminder would see it as a continuously looping rtsp camera. This is how the "cameras" at demo.zoneminder.com are set up. See this for details:

Re: How to disable PTZ motion detection durning camera movement

To avoid recording motion events when the ptz camera moves, set an appropriate value for the (up to three) max area fields in the camera's motion settings. You may also need/want to set a small value in the Frame Ignore Count fields too. To determine that value, look at the motion statistics for a f...

Re: ZoneMinder + Raspberry Pi 4?

Maybe things have changed with multimedia-deb repo, but the zoneminder package from this repo was known to be broken.
Multimedia-deb is not an official Debian repo so I'm not sure how to report bugs against their packages.

Re: ZoneMinder + Raspberry Pi 4?

My install came from the stock Raspian Buster repository. Forgive my ignorance, but if I'm placing the stuff from that conf in my conf-enabled/zoneminder.conf I have to replace all of the @variable@ with the actual path, yes? That's good to hear ZoneMinder has made it back into the Debian repositor...

Re: ZoneMinder + Raspberry Pi 4?

I have Zoneminder running on my Pi 4 with 4gb ram. Storage is on a NAS vs the SD or USB but that shouldn't be a problem. There are some tricks to getting the API to work (.htaccess files seem to not be generated/installed) and I can't get event notification working right but I have 5 Amcrest cams b...

You've identified an issue unique to Archlinux. Archlinux ZoneMinder documentation lives on the Archlinux wiki: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/ZoneMinder If any documentation needs to be changed, that is where it needs to happen. You might want to have a conversation with the package maintaine...

Re: H264 Pass through VS X264 Server Load

The short answer is yes, you should be using passthrough. As the name implies it passes the stream through, straight to storage, w/o modification, because modifying it in any way requires the stream to be decompressed, and decompressing h264/265 streams is expensive. I have nearly the same setup as ...

Re: Alarm on incoming traffic only

Set a value in the Extend Alarm Frame Count field for your preclusive zone. That will extend silencing the alarm for X frames past when the last motion was detected in the preclusive zone.

Re: Image buffer size

There is a direct relationship between how often keyframes are sent and memory requirements. The message you posted indicates the keyframes are coming in way too slowly. A value of 401 is unusually large... double check you are entering the kayframe value in the camera correctly. Keep in mind, in or...

Re: Who turned off the lights?

We already know what is sending the sigterm. For operating systems using systemd, all stop/start commands are redirected through Systemd, regardless of how the user or system tries to stop/start zoneminder. Consequently, the process id sending the sigterm is 1, in all cases. Systemd is detecting a f...

Re: Connecting wired ethernet camera via wifi

I'd recommend you stay away from using wifi with a camera system. You will have the same problem everyone else has... the camera will periodically go offline, and you will have to cycle power on the device to bring it back online. It is merely a question of how often this will happen. Sounds like yo...

The messages you posted are just warnings. They are not fatal, so that might not be the root cause of the API not working. In any case, from what you posted, verify the files and folders mentioned in the message: - /var/log/zm exists - /var/log/zm is owned by the web account user - /var/log/zm/cake_...
