Re: Upgrades issues

2. The contents of the ZoneMinder Apache config file have changed. In addition, this ZoneMinder package now requires you to manually symlink the ZoneMinder Apache config file. See new install step 6 and upgrade step 3 below for details. What this is saying is that previously, the Apache config file...

Re: Fine tuning motion for outdoor camera

Once your buffers are set, then that's when you should start lowering the Min Area fields until you capture the events you are looking for. This is a tuning process that will often require you to strike a balance. Making things really sensitive will record cards going down the street but it will als...

Re: Fine tuning motion for outdoor camera

See the documentation about the image buffers. https://zoneminder.readthedocs.io/en/stable/userguide/definemonitor.html#buffers-tab You need to set a pre-event buffer and a post event buffer. The values are in frames. I usually go with 5 seconds pre and 5 post so do the maths to convert seconds to f...

Re: Upgrades issues

See the README included with the package.
The new apache config file no longer installs automatically.

Re: Fine tuning motion for outdoor camera

One other thing, I recall Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) setting on cheaper cameras can also be a source of ghosting or smearing around moving objects. If the camera in question has this setting, either lower the value or turn it off. The side effect to this is areas in the shadows will be under exposed. ...

Re: Fine tuning motion for outdoor camera

1) Do not rely on the presets for outdoor cameras. Plan on configuring the motion settings by hand for every outdoor camera. 2) Assuming the objects of interest are on the ground, don't point your camera at the sky. Assuming you want to capture the cars in the street, lower the camera's field to the...

Re: RTSP camera set up

Yeah, that's the problem. You need to increase the size of /dev/shm, probably by a lot.

Here is how we set /dev/shm for our Dockerfiles:

Re: RTSP camera set up

Sounds like you are doing it right. If you can see the stream from VLC using the RTSP url then that should work in ZoneMinder as well. Disable all cameras but one. To do that, do both: set it's function to none and uncheck the enabled checkbox. Leave one camera enabled and set its function to Monito...

Re: zmtrigger.pl failure in versions over 1.30.4

zm-alarm.pl is definitely broken. It simply needed to be updated to the latest way of accessing mapped memory. The following commit fixes zm-alarm on my test system: https://github.com/ZoneMinder/zoneminder/commit/284d622464f83ec7898501c97daeb2d848c45aa7 zmtrigger continues to work fine for me, howe...

Re: zmtrigger.pl failure in versions over 1.30.4

One simple way to find a particular function call within any project is to grep the source code for it: $ grep -r zmMemGet ./ ./scripts/ZoneMinder/lib/ZoneMinder/Memory.pm.in: my $data = zmMemGet( $monitor, $offset, $size ); ./scripts/ZoneMinder/lib/ZoneMinder/Memory/Mapped.pm: zmMemGet ./scripts/Zo...
