Re: Thank you and zone sensitivity

If the recording can't keep up, lower FPS and resolution (on the camera - not ZM) until it is stable . With my setup, I'm mildly disappointed that capture and analysis rates are quite low comparing to my unfounded expectations before getting my gears. i5-6500T CPU @ 2.50GHz RAM: 8GB Number of camer...

A possible bug with Event ID > Replay > All Events

Hi, I am new to Zoneminder (v1.34.20) and I have encountered an issue. Either I don't know how it works or it might be a bug. After clicking an Event ID > Replay > All Events or an Event Name > ... , one event is played, then a blank screen is shown with a countdown clock for a suitable length of ti...

Re: Translation Help Wanted!!

Probably. Please head up this effort. Sure. I have a few partially updated and working "zh_ xx .php"s on a pre-production box. Yes, it is "zh_ xx .php" with the correct locale naming conversion. Zoneminder just picks them in up straight away. Amazing! Thank you and folks for making Zoneminder so im...

A trivial error on the Web GUI — missing item across the top menu bar

For an unprivileged user with the following settings, "Console" is missing from the menu bar at the top. Nevertheless, one still can access it by passing no parameters to index.php. (Enabled, Stream, Events, Control, Monitors, Groups, System) = (Yes, View, View, None, None, None, None); And to acces...

Re: Translation Help Wanted!!

Updated Simplified Chinese translation big5_big5.php is not working in v1.34.20, but shouldn't it be called zh_tw.php ? And according to ISO 639-1, shouldn't cn_zh.php be called zh_cn.php instead? Other relevant locales are zh_sg and zh_hk . References Andiamo! Language Services Ltd (no date) ISO 6...

[SOLVED] Re: Axis M3025-VE - constantly switching between day/night modes

Problem SOLVED! Yes, it needs more hysteresis, it's not rocket science. Automated "dusk lights" have to figure this stuff out so they don't switch themselves off, by switching on ... :) So camera manufacturers really should have fixed this! Absolutely, what I needed is hysteresis, but now I'll settl...

Re: Axis M3025-VE - constantly switching between day/night modes

When I have an Axis M3025-VE camera's IR filter on auto, it ticks — switching between day/night modes — like a clock (as in tick-tock, tick-tock) for good several minutes during dusk and dawn. Can't they just have its light sensor less accurate? I have some initial responses from Axis technical sup...

Best to keep the cameras firewalled from the internet, and trust your firewall isn't backdoored too.
Thanks for very comprehensive info. I think I can trust the Debian team.

Re: Camera backdoor

That's reassuring. I might wish to look at the cameras when I'm away now and then. But I don't need to manage anything remotely, so no ssh nor vpn. BTW, noip.com seems to be exceedingly expensive. It costs $25 a year, whereas my entire web hosting package is only ~$150. Is it possible to run my own ...

Camera backdoor

I read a 2017 article on the Dahua backdoor <https://ipvm.com/reports/dahua-backdoor>. Is this practice wide spread? Apparently, Axis (2018) had a security breach too <https://www.csoonline.com/article/3282787/researchers-disclose-7-flaws-in-390-axis-ip-cameras-remote-attacker-could-take-control.htm...

Re: Thank you and zone sensitivity

Thanks for the tips. Disable JPEG saving, and use ffmpeg. That makes a lot of sense. Why didn't I think of that before? Before: ZMC ~30% CPU per camera, ZMA ~20% After: ZMC unchanged, ZMA ~8% Load is reduced from to ~2.6 to ~1.8 (on a 4-core) Still losing some frames, but not as severe as before. Po...

A couple trivial questions regarding time stamps

I've a couple trivial questions regarding time stamps. Font Size: In additional Default and Large, can we have a Very Large option? Once I made a change to the Timestamp tab: Why can't I set (Timestamp Label X, Timestamp Label X) = (0, 0)? Instead I'm having this error message: "! Valve must be grea...

Re: Thank you and zone sensitivity

So the alarm event is skipping; i.e. it suddenly shows the car halfway through the picture... I had this issue with a 4K cam. The solution was to do mocord/modect on the low res stream at a low FPS, and then record the high res stream. Linked monitors is another option, if you don't want 24/7 recor...

Re: Thank you and zone sensitivity

The worst case I've seen was an 1.5 seconds gap between two alarm frames. Even worse. I have a gap of 4 seconds between two consecutive alarm frames. The timestamps, that the camera put on and the one by Zoneminder, differ by 8 seconds. Not good. I wonder where to start to reduce them to more accep...
