Prevent camera from recording for extended period

I use the API - with a json on or off - to enable recording and disable. My concern is for whatever reason the recording I start does not get turned off - did not receive the json OFF request, etc. Is there some way that I can set a max recording time? Or is there someway when I tell the camera to t...

Turn on camera via API for specified time?

I'm running hassio - and under certain conditions I want to turn on a ZM camera for a specified time. I know how to turn it on via zm/api/monitors/alarm/id:1/command:on.json (and off via the off.json) - but it would be convenient just have the camera turn off after some period of time. I can have ha...

Failed to open out file in event directory

This is on Ubuntu 18.04 - ZM 1.31.47. Not sure when it started - this is a new installation (within the last couple of weeks) - but I'm really starting to capture cam events now - so could have been that way from the beginning. I'm using external telnet trigger to turn on cams BTW - not depending on...

Impressions of 1.31.4

I installed a Ubuntu 18.04 and ZM 1.31.4 this weekend from scratch. So far it working without any issues. I have 7 of the POE Hikvision HD cameras - and one Foscam. Impressed so far though my setup is not very complicated. I don't do any of the "motion" detection inside of ZM - I depend on external ...

newbie Zone question

I actually have 2 question. The first question is - when you have a camera set up with more than one zone defined - how do you know WHICH zone may be going in alarm? Second question is - I saw a thread in this forum - https://forums.zoneminder.com/viewtopic.php?f=34&t=25081&p=95904&hilit=red#p95904 ...

Re: zmninja question

That was the issue asker - I had the internal IP address of my ZM server configured in the ZMnimja event server field. Changed it to the DDNS host name and it now works. Thanks for the quick reply to my question though. So great app and thanks for all your work on it. I'm going to make a donation fo...

Trying to get zmeventnotification.pl to work - the perl script that allows my android phone (using zmNinja) to receive alerts from the ZM server. As part of the install instructions it s...
