It's only obvious if you've already been down that alley, and then read the documentation again, and again ... ZoneMinder has some twisty bits in it that can trip you up, it might not be 100% intuitive, but it's pretty darn powerful!

Re: Foscam FI8904W frequently has all blue images captured

My Foscam I8905 keeps locking up, and needs rebooting. I wish I could cron a daily reboot. I weekly give all mine (not the same brand) a dose of salts with :- wget --http-user=root --http-password=$PASS -O /dev/null --post-data="Reset= Yes " http://cam01/DoReset.HTM or wget --http-user=root --http-...

Re: Foscam FI8904W frequently has all blue images captured

Thanks for the info. Actually, my first distro was slackware, so I get it. :) So was mine, in '93/94, when it first came on 20-30 floppy disks. Continuity, that's the thing ;) As far as that 'blue screen' thing, I just realized it shows up when the Event "Cause" is "Signal". Oh, well that's a givea...

Re: Can't open /tmp/zm/zmswap-m3/... No Such file or directo

Daft question, but do you have a /tmp/zm/zmswap-m3 .... directory, or have you accidentally/deliberateely purged /tmp while ZM was running?

What happens if you restart zoneminder, does it go away? "zmpkg.pl restart" from the command line ...

Re: Foscam FI8904W frequently has all blue images captured

Are the blue images coming from the camera, or from ZoneMinder? With my cameras (not the same brand), when there's a comms error between the capture demon of Zoneminder, and the camera (over an IP Link), the capture demon returns a placeholder "blue picture" which is analyzed and saved instead. I ca...

Re: setting post event record time

Click on the "source" for the camera you wish to tweak (3rd column of main ZoneMinder display), then "Buffers" tab and "Post Event Image Count". This is the number of frames stored AFTER the event has ended, and is in "frames", so work out how many frames-per-second your camera goes at, and pop some...

Well it's true, isn't it? :) You can use all sorts of notations in the filters. I'm not sure if the "ago" is needed/ignored, but it makes it clearer to me.

Re: How to move events between monitors?

Yep. Tried that. No joy. Oh, well the zone-define problem you had would definitely persist across waggling the camera on and off. I see :( I should never have been able to move a point out of range in the first place. ... it should have just put the point within range, Absolutely right, just clip i...

Re: How to move events between monitors?

The only solution in the mean time I could see was to re-add the camera. Each time I did, it came back green. I was able to get on with my day. While you are fixing whatever your underlying problem is, don't re-add the camera, try setting it from "Modect/Record" to "None" and then back to "Modect"....

Ability to remotely reboot camera on serious signal loss

As hinted it in http://www.zoneminder.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=29&t=21156&p=80211#p80211 Is it possible to add an option to specify a command to be run when a [IP?] camera is dropping the signal, or otherwise misbehaving?
