Re: [SOLVED] no score despite movement in frame and med/high sensitivity

There are couple of things to note: 1) Don't rely on the presets. They work okay for indoor testing purposes, but rarely work at all for outdoor views with changing light levels. You should expect to manually tune all of your zones for all of your cameras. 2) ZoneMinder only records statistics for a...

Re: Ubuntu 18.04 + nginx cgi issue - no streaming

For the distro you are using, /zm/cgi-bin/nph-zms is the only correct value for PATH_ZMS with no trailing spaces when doing normal streaming. Don't be confused by the symlink. zms knows how it was called, and will do something different if it was executed as just "zms" rather than "nph-zms". The pro...

Re: Strange replay behaviour

It sounds like your motion zones are not setup correctly, rather than some kind of error condition. Start by reviewing the documentation on how to set up motion zones, if you have not already. These two in particular: http://zoneminder.readthedocs.io/en/stable/userguide/definezone.html https://wiki....

Re: Ubuntu 18.04 + nginx cgi issue - no streaming

In a perfect world, I'd rather we all switched to nginx. Unfortunately, I don't use it as much as I want to, though. Looking at the screenshot shown in an earlier post, PATH_ZMS is not set correctly. Value of PATH_ZMS from the sreenshot: /zm/cgi-bin/zms What is should be set to: /zm/cgi-bin/ nph- zms

Re: ZM errors in log

Buffer overrun always means the system is being driven too hard. One or more components are not able to keep up. However, it's unclear what happened first... did the camera go offline and then the cpu blew up trying to reconnect, or are you running your system right on the edge of stability, where a...

Re: How can i divide recordings in 10 minutes with MODETEC

First, welcome to open source software, where there is no shortage of users who love to tell us what the developers should be working on, for free, on their own time, out the sheer goodness of their hearts. However, there is a very real shortage of people willing to do the actual work. You can make ...

Re: How can i divide recordings in 10 minutes with MODETEC

Use run states to record on modect when the restaurant is closed, or otherwise expected to not be busy. Then schedule a different run state, which will put the camera into record or mocord during the busy times. Start here to learn about run states: http://zoneminder.readthedocs.io/en/stable/usergui...

Re: How can i divide recordings in 10 minutes with MODETEC

Please refer to the help text that describes EVENT_CLOSE_MODE. It does not apply to modect. So the answer to the question asked in the title is, you can't divide recordings into 10 minute segments using modect. That is what mocord is for. Is the constant motion something you want to record? If it is...

Re: Zoneminder in Arch Linux missing dependencies

I'm not sure how many arch linux users are in this forum. You may want to try your question in the arch linux forum or contact the package manager directly. The dependencies shown in the error message are all available in redhat & debian repos. Come to think of it, I might even be the redhat package...

Re: Layout messed up after 1.31.44 update

ZM_CACHEDIR is the correct name of the cmake macro.

Re: Layout messed up after 1.31.44 update

Thank you knight-of-ni! :D :D -DCMAKE_CACHEDIR was the key. Changes in Apache configuration I followed earlier. So WEB interface works now. Are there any other changes related to upgrade from 1.31.1? Here I think on build & configure scripts. I'm not a package maintainer for Slackware, but would li...

Re: Layout messed up after 1.31.44 update

@zd59 your case is going to be different than most of the other users in this thread. Essentially, what is going on here is the packaging scripts for each distro need to be updated to account for the new changes in zoneminder. We take care of Ubuntu and Redhat, but other distros will require coordin...

Since I live in the US, I missed the GDPR implications of this question. We are discussing this internally and will roll out a solution that complies with that asap.
