Re: Motion Time of Day Limitation

@wkulecz: Yes, you are getting more at what I am thinking about. I think in zoneminder this would be best implemented as associated with individual zones. This way you could have zones with different sensitivities which activate at different times. It would need a new table to manage day of the week...

Re: Thousands of Blue Screen events on remote IP cameras

Sounds like a plan. If you find something out, let us know.

Re: Thousands of Blue Screen events on remote IP cameras

Sounds like it is a different issue. Just similar symptoms. All I could suggest at this point is to be very systematic in your trials. Pick a netural setting for every setting and change only one at a time (extreme high then extremem low). See if any settings make any difference. Beyond that, no ide...

Re: Thousands of Blue Screen events on remote IP cameras

DarkBeer, if the FPS is blank it will use the max possible. That should mean that it would wait for the images to come in I think, but I suggest to try setting it to 3fps, 7 fps, 12 fps, and 20 fps. Let it run for like 5 minutes each, and see if there is a difference. Also, if it creates blue images...

Re: Thousands of Blue Screen events on remote IP cameras

I don't think it is the same. The ring buffer maintains a group of images such that if an alarm comes you can record the already occured images. However, the managing of downloading of images into the ring buffer is where I think the issue is. The ring buffer will hold x images, but I think it still...

Re: Thousands of Blue Screen events on remote IP cameras

From what I have seen, I think it is related to the amount of time it takes the image to transfer over the network. I think if zoneminder is still receiving the previous image, it may still request the next image from the camera. When that happens I don't think zoneminder handles two images coming i...

Memory or RamDrive Buffer?

My zoneminder system is also my data storage system for the whole house. I use a raid-1 drive setup and cycle out a thrid drive about every two weeks to ensure my data is safe and secure. However, after having two drives fail a couple weeks ago (not exactly at the same time, so no data was lost). Al...

Re: Thousands of Blue Screen events on remote IP cameras

Stealtboy: I am also using the dlink wireless cameras. Please be sure to try what I wrote about the wireless settings on the wireless router our access point. Try forcing it to only support G. You may not want to leave it, but test it.

Re: Frame Skip disable during alerts?

Humm.. Well maybe I've been wasting my time. I think I found the function and it seems like it already ignores the frame skip during an alert. Can someone confirm that I am reading the code correctly? File: zm_monitor.cpp Function: bool Monitor::Analyse() Snippet: else if ( state == ALERT ) { event-...

Re: Frame Skip disable during alerts?

I assume this would have to be in the c code as apposed to the runtime scripts. I tried to look through zma and zmc, but I still can't find the function that checks if frame skips are enabled. I did find where it checks the frame rate setting (used for analysis), but nothing to have it skip frames b...

Re: Multiple Disk Handling - without LVM or RAID

You can also just use mdadm for a free software raid that performs about as well as the cheap motherboard raid chips. You just need equal amounts of spare unallocated space on multiple drives and you can form a software raid with those partitions. I run my entire machine using software raid 1 that s...

Re: Thousands of Blue Screen events on remote IP cameras

Hi Briago, Thanks for your reply. All of these cameras are wired on an isolated VLAN. No wireless routers - any other ideas? Micah J I don't have any direct ideas, but from what I saw in my situation the issue was related to the network having intermittent data transfer loss. When the pakets were d...

Re: Thousands of Blue Screen events on remote IP cameras

I've used wired cameras for years. I recently got an IP wireless camera to test them out for friends and family that want a similar setup to mine now, but can't (or won't) run the wires. I was also getting many zero byte (blue) images from the camera (seemingly random). I tried many options with fra...

Frame Skip disable during alerts?

I like to use a script which produces a daily summary video for each camera. I like to use MoCord to get a view of the whole day, not just during alerts. As a result I need a big difference between frames per second during non-alerts and alerts. To keep a full day's review to about 2 minutes (for ca...
