Re: question on setting up zone sensitivity

My blend percentage was previously set at 7%. What I've done differently today is go through and delete the zones and added more zones that are smaller in size. When looking down a hallway, I decided to create a near zone and a far zone. I used fast, high sensitivity with the default settings, and s...

question on setting up zone sensitivity

I have 5 Foscam cameras monitoring an equipment warehouse. When I have full frames set for motion detection, it detects everything fine. In an effort to cut down the number of recordings that need to be reviewed, I would like to set my zones so that motion is only detected if someone is physically t...

Re: Thousands of Blue Screen events on remote IP cameras

Unfortunately this Foscam camera produces a constant corrupt JPEG data error in the logs. They fixed this on another model with a firmware update, but haven't fixed this model yet. I'll just keep tinkering and hopefully figure it out at some point. Appreciate the suggestions!

Re: Thousands of Blue Screen events on remote IP cameras

Finally have some time to start tinkering with this again. I have image buffer set to 50, which I read as a suggested max. Warmup frames is 25, pre event image count is 10 and post event image count is also 10. Max FPS is set to 7. All 5 Foscam FI8910W cameras are set the same way. Still getting blu...

Re: Thousands of Blue Screen events on remote IP cameras

What setting are you using? I copied the same setup to my 1.25 install, so on the buffers tab, image buffer size (frames) is set to 40 on each (5) camera. The quote you had above seems to suggest 50 would be an upper limit. I can't help but think the faster system I am now running on shouldn't need ...

Re: Thousands of Blue Screen events on remote IP cameras

When I look at my camera setup, the Max FPS field is blank. I left it that way in 1.25 because that was the same way I had it set in 1.24. Again, same number of cameras, identical zone setups, same network, but on the faster computer running 1.25, I get these errors, whereas the slower single core C...

Re: Thousands of Blue Screen events on remote IP cameras

Sorry to dig up an old thread, but this is exactly the issue I am having. Was running 1.24.2 on an older single core cpu server with older 10.x Ubuntu. Setup 1.25.0 on a newer dual core with Mint Linux and same 5 cameras, but now I get numerous "signal" recordings with blue frames. Has anyone found ...

False recordings after migrating from 1.24 on old server

I ran 1.24 on a server at work with 5 Foscam FI8910W cameras for a couple weeks. All cameras are set for motion detection. Most all of my zones were set for fast, high sensitivity. The load on that old computer was too much, so I received a newer computer with better hardware specs. Did a new instal...

Noob question: Are capture cards required with IP cameras

I'm looking at the possibility of using ZoneMinder with up to 4 IP cameras. Do I also need a capture card for recording video from motion detection events, or is that only required for analog cameras? When reading part of the FAQ on the wiki, it discussed ways to reduce system load when using IP cam...
