One suggestion for this AMAZING package

Post by rwinkel » Wed Nov 06, 2013 2:47 pm

Just installed ZM 1.26.4 here and I have to say it's rilley kewl :)
I have 4 axis 212 PTZ cameras (soon to be more) "modect"ed by a
CPU0: Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5520 @ 2.27GHz stepping 05
with 8gb of ram with centos 6.4 on a vm under vmware esx and it's working flawlessly after I reverted zm_rtp_source.cpp to the previous version.
The things you can do with this are amazing.
One thing that occurred to me is that the museum guard that's going to be using it would probably benefit from
some kind of visual alert in the console window when events are happening. Maybe the text "Monitor-X" could be flashed red or something. That would stand out with the standard skin.
Also as I mentioned in a previous thread I can't enter user:password with the IP# in the camera source panel.
Anyway, thanks for all you guys (and gals?) have accomplished. Really amazing.

I figured out the problem with adding a userid:password to the remote host name field. The password has an equals (=) in it. Line 84 of
web/skins/classic/views/js/monitor.js.php
only allows characters [0-9a-zA-Z_.:@-]. This seems overly restrictive. I'm going to hack my copy but someone might consider just including all printable characters.

For a notification feature, Zm already offers a lot of ways to notify someone.

You can for example:

Have ZM send an email when an event has occured
Have ZM send a SMS when an event has occured
Monitor ZM's logs
Have ZM output log entries to a 3rd party logging utility
etc

If you are good with programming, possibilities are almost endless

However if you want a specific type of notification on the main interface, I agree, that would be cool.

If you want to request such feature, open a feature request on the github page, the devs will rank the priority of your request and if agreed its useful/handy it will be added to the list....

This is how a project goes from good to GREAT!
