Desktop Screen Recording and Monitoring

Zoneminder can record the desktop of a user's computer. All that is required is to serve images or video of the desktop on the LAN. It's doesn't have to be HTTP and MJPEG/RTSP. It can be SMB mapped to the ZM server, and then read as File type in ZM. I started with Windows computers, as most small bu...

Re: No Video in ZM Console

It sounds like you have everything working except the camera. See https://wiki.zoneminder.com/Finding_Camera_Stream_Paths You could also post the logs, that may help. Don't put a Max FPS in ZM. Do ensure you get the Resolution correct. You can test it in VLC gui or ffmpeg first to get the resolution...

Readthedocs is on 1.32.3

Official ZM Documentation redirects to 1.32.3 on zoneminder.readthedocs.io.

1.34 is there, but by default it goes to 1.32.3

Re: Home alarm system

You can receive alarms from zmtrigger.pl (it's a telnet server), and act on those. https://wiki.zoneminder.com/ZMTrigger You can set a filter to activate a shell script. https://zoneminder.readthedocs.io/en/1.32.3/userguide/filterevents.html There are likely other ways. I don't know how you would in...

Re: Sending email from ZM

Literally the same post as viewtopic.php?f=38&t=28841&p=112796

Is this advanced AI spam? Or maybe you just reposted. Did you ever try the other email service?

Re: Sending email from ZM

Everything I know is covered in https://wiki.zoneminder.com/Email You can try adding DEBUG=yes to ssmtp.conf As a sanity check, try a different email server, something that other people have used on the forums. 400 errors I think mean it's an error on the servers part. 500 errors mean it's a user er...

Re: Restrict user access to only local network devices

Apache can block based on IP address. Try that, and only allow certain IPs. Most employees don't understand how to access servers from the internet via ip address and port, so they probably wouldn't know to look for ZM on the WAN. Alternatively, you could route all WAN from the ZM server through a V...

The nph-zms view just give a snapshot image at that moment. Can I have live streaming url. I would like to have live stream with boxes overlay.
See wiki.zoneminder.com/Example_Camera_View_HTML

This should stream, I think mjpeg to your browser.

Re: Is ZoneMinder Streaming API fast enough for live broadcasting?

To be fair, my experience is with an RPI, so you might have better luck with an x86 based CPU / server hardware.

Re: ZMRepo Builds - Debian Stretch and Jessie incomplete

Also, looks like 1.32.3 and 1.34 on zmrepo are missing the /etc/init.d/zoneminder script. Including this file will retain compatibility with sysvinit. The init file from 1.30.4 works ok for these releases. Another note: ZMRepo currently has release and release-1.34. Release has 1.32.3. In order to n...

ZMRepo Builds - Debian Stretch and Jessie incomplete

Some builds for Stretch and Jessie are not there. Are these planned to be supported? I'm almost positive 1.34 will build on stretch, as I've tested 1.33 with Devuan Ascii (which is more or less similar), so I don't think much has changed. Review https://zmrepo.zoneminder.com/Debian/ and you'll see s...

Re: Is ZoneMinder Streaming API fast enough for live broadcasting?

In my experience, there is about a 5-10 second delay from a remote 4G hotspot and VPN to a LAN.

Re: Superimposing Labels on an image

It sounds like what you are trying to do is a video overlay. You want to overlay boxes on the video feeds. Not typical behavior of ZM, but ZM provides the video streams via Apache, so you should be able to grab those video feeds, add the overlay, and serve the resulting stream. I'm not sure exactly ...

Re: Superimposing Labels on an image

1000 vehicles is a lot. Let's forget that, and assume you have something like 20 boxes per camera. You can setup 20 zones, and then act upon that, so I'm going to guess that this 'is' possible.

Alternatively, you will want to investigate zmeventnotification server, and also ozone.network

Re: API Error To access remotely on zmNinja

For new users, its easiest to use the wiki installation docs, or the official docs (former preferred). See wiki.zoneminder.com/Helpful_user_contributed_resources Debian / Ubuntu is the easiest. Since you've chosen FreeNAS, that is a tougher road for setup. The debug logs on ZMNinja, will give more d...
