Re: Home/Away Mode

I believe if you set all the options while in a different mode, ie, when in Away mode send an email to your sms service. Home mode options would not be sent.

Re: [RESOLVED] ZoneMinder 1.25.0 extremely slow to log in et

I am aware that you can use a special perl patch to use the axis built in cameras's motion detection. This will offload your server's cpu for handling cameras that do not do motion detection...I can't recall where I had seen that specific article, but it's arond on this site somewhere...

Re: WAR Corrupt JPEG data: 1 extraneous bytes before marker

All my foscams happily run at 640x480. I do set the fps to max of 5 tho and the rate=11 in the Remote Host Path setting:

Re: WAR Corrupt JPEG data: 1 extraneous bytes before marker

We are always tuning our zones. This warning has *nothing* to do with motion detection at all. Just a few errounous bytes on the jpeg envelope, not the contents.

Re: WAR Corrupt JPEG data: 1 extraneous bytes before marker

@px03afk - Yes there's some extraneous data in the jpg and that's probably a bug that needs to be fixed. However firmware changes are a bit more risky so I prefer to work around it until "they" get it working someday. For the price/performance I am not complaining if this is the only issue I have ha...

Re: Simple Email Notification?

Hey I have some script that checks for motion events. Here's a version I use but I had to base my auth on something more specific to my needs). I had to install sendmail and fuss with the /etc/mail/submit.mc: define(`SMART_HOST', `myisp.smtpserver.com')dnl MASQUERADE_AS(`mydns.dyndns.org')dnl which ...

Current /etc/wicd/postconnect/wirelessup script

I had mentioned I replaced NetworkManager with wicd for passwordless auto boot. I wanted to share my wicd script to ensure zm plus all the other key daemons were up and running. Note after installing wicd, to disable NetworkManager I did the following: cd /etc/init.d; sudo mv network-manager network...

Re: WAR Corrupt JPEG data: 1 extraneous bytes before marker

Just got an email asking how I fixed this. Again, simply add the following line just before the Warning(...) line at or near line 63 of zm_jpeg.cpp: if (!strstr(buffer, "Corrupt JPEG data:")) // this is the new line of code that will eliminate the Foscam 8918W camera... The above code instructs the ...

Re: Counting Vehicles

Sounds viable, if you use zmu -l to list notice when your left monitor (same cam) is pre-alarm after your right one, then you know the direction (car travels right to left). while : do sudo zmu -l -U $usr -P $pwd done | perl -pe 'BEGIN{$left=1;$right=3;} #set to the appropriate left/right mon ids ($...

Hi, I did this with a remote foscam (this as little to do with zm): crontab -e # enter the following into the file: # m h dom mon dow command 0,30 * * * * /var/www/src/getsnap.sh > /tmp/cron_getsnap.sh 2>&1 Then create a script file, eg: cat<<EOF>/var/www/src/getsnap.sh #!/bin/bash /usr/bin/wget -q ...

Re: big probleme with FOSCAM IP PT/IR cam FI8918W random res

Hi, I am using three foscam FI8918W's with no firmware updates on 1.25.0 (now masterTheKnife's 1.25.1 version). Two are wireless one is wired. I get an occasional 1 frame signal alarm (dropped frame?) mabye 1-2 per 24hr period. I had to do a small (1 line patch) to zm_jpeg.cpp in both orginal 1.25.0...

Re: WAR Corrupt JPEG data: 1 extraneous bytes before marker

I was getting this one my newly added foscam monitors. I just disabled them with the following code @ zm_jpeg.cpp:63 (zmerr->pub.format_message)( cinfo, buffer ); if (!strstr(buffer, "Corrupt JPEG data:")) // add this line before warning. It was quite annoying. Warning( "%s", buffer ); There's proba...

Re: ZoneMinder 1.25.0 - preview

Hi, just getting around to zoneminder (v1.25.0) after all these years of procrastination....anyways...i built ZM tarball and ran on an old Dell 1.6GHz with 2 cores running Knoppix 6.4.4 off a usb install with a few symlinks to the hard drive for storage. My first ZM cam is an Axis 207W. I will be ad...
