Re: UPS POWEROUT event to trigger Zoneminder

Thanks for all the input! So, it seems like a good idea to issue a zmtrigger |off| at low battery event. I am still testing and playing around with this. I am considering adding a fail safe |on+3600| at the power loss event. Would that be a problem if a |off| command comes before failsafe 3600? Also...

UPS POWEROUT event to trigger Zoneminder

I have a APCUPS connected to my ZM installation. The apcupsd daemon generates events like powerout and onbattery. The apsupsd then executes custom bash scripts with the same name in a certain folder. I made two script, powerout and mainsback. Powerout will trigger a recording on all monitors. Mainsb...

[SOLVED] Zmtrigger not starting

Ok, found the solution.

In the Servers section, the server itself needs to have the "Run Trigger Process" option set.

[SOLVED] Zmtrigger not starting

I cant make zmtrigger start with Zoneminder.

There is nothing in the logs. I have OPT_TRIGGERS checked.

I can start it with "sudo /usr/bin/zmtrigger.pl" and it works just fine.

What am I doing wrong?

I am on Ubuntu 18.04, latest Zoneminder.

Thanks,

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get full-upgrade
sudo add-apt-repository --remove ppa:iconnor/zoneminder-1.32

and all worked fine!

Re: dpkg tries to change ownership on remote mounted events folder

Eh, am I supposted to do:

sudo chmod -R a+rw events/

..on the remote server?

This gives me write permissions but does not solve dpkg configuration.

Re: /dev/shm goes 100% with no cameras

Thank you, I suspect this is the problem. Using multi server Zoneminder with a opi doesn't really solve my problem. I just want to stream 3 USB cameras to the more powerful main server for motion detection. And that is the opposite of what multi server ZM is all about if I understand correctly. Thanks

Re: /dev/shm goes 100% with no cameras

This is a multi server setup.

One server has all funktions.

The Pi has only the camera part.

What should ZM_SERVER_HOST point to? Always it self?

Thanks

/dev/shm goes 100% with no cameras

Hi, I am trying to set up a Zoneminder server on a orangePi running Armbian. Plan is to have a USB camera connected and add this server as a multiserver install to my main Zoneminder server. But /dev/shm keeps getting full. Whatever I do. Just starting Zoneminder without any camera configured. What ...

Re: Can't watch recordings after apt-get update

You are running a version from the zoneminder-master PPA. This is a development version so you can expect things to not work. If you need to have a working system switch to the zoneminder-1.32 PPA and overwrite your existing install. I think I followed your howto with a script and got that PPA. Can...

How do you change ppa?

I think I installed with the wrong ppa.
I installed on ubuntu 18.04 using:
http://ppa.launchpad.net/iconnor/zonemi ... ter/ubuntu

Can I just change it to:
ppa:iconnor/zoneminder-1.32

Thanks
