My skin keeps being set back to classic

If I got to Options -> System and set SKIN_DEFAULT to 'custom' it doesn't seem to actually have any effect. Meanwhile, under Options -> Display if I set the skin to 'custom' and hit save it also has no effect, and the next time I load that page it will be showing 'classic' again. The only way to act...

3-wide, scale and enlarge on alarm behavior of 1.30.4 possible in 1.34.0?

I have been busy migrating my setup over from 1.30.4 and so far I have not been able to figure out how to emulate this older behavior with the UI in 1.34.0. I was hoping that I am just missing the option somewhere?

Re: SOUND_ON_ALARM still doesn't work

Heh that's one way to get it done. Yeah unfortunately that won't work for my situation though because my biggest need for having an alert sound is when I'm away from home, so no way to predict what host SSH would need to connect to unless I setup a dynamic DNS script at all the places I go, and I ha...

Re: SOUND_ON_ALARM still doesn't work

Yeah that would be a server-side beep rather than through the client you're viewing from. I did something similar before but need something to play on my laptop when I'm away from home. The hack I'm using currently utilizes Web Sound API... //Make a beep function with the new Web Sound API var audio...

Re: Anyone want to help me write a new geofencing script?

Well, I don't like using CGI but I actually know how to use it so I put together this cgi version and stuck it into ZM's cgi-bin. I think I have it set to properly sanitize the input values, since by printing only what matches the regex "runstate=[[:alpha:]]\{1,\}" with grep, it will exclude any oth...

Anyone want to help me write a new geofencing script?

So I used to use the method outlined here: https://forums.zoneminder.com/viewtopic.php?t=25499 The problem is the authentication method has changed in >= 1.3.4.0 I've figured out that someone would need to get the auth API token in order to authenticate and then curl the runstate .json API change li...

SOUND_ON_ALARM still doesn't work

I've had trouble getting this to work since 1.30.4 My 'ZM_DIR_SOUNDS' directory equals 'sounds'. I'm not sure if that means it should be relative to ZM's root or my apache web server's root? (/var/www/html/) But I have a directory called 'sounds' in both and it still does not play any sound. I have ...

Re: Zoneminder won't stay connected to camera

I'm trying to troubleshoot this still so I've enabled debug logging. I'm just trying to find anything that seems relevant by looking at timestamps during instances where the cameras aren't visible, and also those files which mention the camera that can't be viewed. So far I've found these entries wh...

Re: Zoneminder won't stay connected to camera

From my experience with Zmodopipe, I found that it was easier to use a Video encoder for analog streams. See https://wiki.zoneminder.com/Hardware_compatibility_List#IP_Video_Encoder Used devices are available for <$100. Well I'd probably just buy more IP Cams if I was going to spend that kind of mo...
