Re: Zoneminder keeps crashing

Could this have something to do with it?

Re: Zoneminder and Seperate HDD for recording

What are the permissions of /mnt and /mnt/vdb?

On CentOS they'd both need to have the eXecute bit set for all users else Apache can't see or traverse the directories below them, so maybe it's the same with Ubuntu and other distros?

I would have thought that it should still see the disk size though.

Re: Shadows set off motion

In my mind, it's about detecting changes larger than the things you're looking for and using those large-scale changes to prevent other zones triggering.

Re: Shadows set off motion

I found that making a fairly large Preclusive zone and detecting changes (but not blobs) that affect a significant percentage of that zone stopped most shadow- and cloud- and sunlight-induced false alarms.

I get this too, using ZM 1.32.2 on CentOS 7.

Re: DiskSpace column shows incorrect values

11 GB out of 218 GB is about 5%, which is coincidentally the default amount of reserved space for ext2/3/4 file systems. You can change the value using tune2fs -m X /dev/sdYZ where X is the percentage of reserved space desired (e.g. 1, 0.5, etc.) and YZ is the partition identifier (e.g. 'c1' for /de...

Re: Zoneminder unusable: intermittent zmc issue with monitors (start/terminate/restart loop)

Have you tried using MediaInfo to inspect a stream saved using FFMpeg and -codec copy? That might provide some clues.

Only downside is the cameras can't set their clocks
Can you set up an NTP service on the ZM machine and have the cameras get their time from that?

Re: Image degradation

Quality 6 I don't know what the range available is on that camera, but most of the cameras and video software I've come across use lower numbers for better quality - On my current cheapo-Chinese things the scale runs from 1 through 6, with 6 being lowest quality. Maybe trying a lower number is wort...

Re: Dedicated drive issue - Ubuntu 18.04

My situation is similar but not exactly the same (I'm simply using a directory under /home rather than a dedicated disk, and I'm moving the entire /var/lib/zoneminder directory) and I found that I also had to change the Default Storage Path at Options -> Storage in the ZoneMinder console. I also had...

Re: problem with camera switching back and forth to night vision

Maximum Alarm Area = "If more than this much of the zone changes, don't raise an alarm"

It can be set in pixels or percent.
