Re: Need Recommendation for Zone Minder Server

I'm running ver 1.30.04 on Debian 9 with 4 2mp poe cameras set to Mocord at 9 fps and everything works fine. I want to upgrade the cameras to at least 4mp, possibly as high as 8mp if the price is right, as well as add 5 more cameras for a total of 9. Buy a used server on ebay or a local IT recycler...

Re: Zoneminder 1.33.X Debian 9

As a test I fired up a Debian 9 machine, updated it, installed Apache, Mariadb and PHP. Added source: # ZoneMinder repository deb https://zmrepo.zoneminder.com/debian/release stretch/ Except for the Zoneminder source I followed the install instructions at: https://wiki.zoneminder.com/Debian_9_64-bit...

Re: Need Recommendation for Zone Minder Server

4 mp is overkill for a security camera system. I run 17 cameras 640x480 5 fps on an i5 quad core, 16 GB Ram, 1 TB WD Black HD. Mocord on 5 cameras while working modect the rest of the time. HD averages 70% used with 30 day purge.
Stay with lower res cameras and buy yourself a new laptop!

Re: Color Bullet Camera Scrolling Video From New Installation

Go back remove the settings you added: kernel.shmmax = 8589934592 kernel.shmall = 39321 Those settings have not been needed for years and may just make matters worse. Here is a link to the install procedures for 1.30.4 on Debian 9: https://wiki.zoneminder.com/Debian_9_64-bit_with_Zoneminder_1.30.4_t...

Check the whole php.ini file. Mine had one more timezone line at the very end. Or just run php_info and see if php outputs the correct timezone.
If you use one of my install scripts the date entry will be appended to the php.ini file. For most this will not be an issue.

Re: live stream works but not event replay (just see the first frame, hitting play doenst do anything)

Try saving jpgs vs. mp4.

Also it is good to cite your Linux distro and version as some issues are OS specific. The fixes are, too. Hardware info might be good to know as well.

Re: Cannot start zoneminder

With Linux you could have put the old hard drive in the new PC and it will run. Glad you found how to upgrade the database!

Re: zoneminder wrong timesetamp

Are you sure the time is coming from Zoneminder? Or is it the camera time in the image?

Other suggestion is to not run in Docker...

Re: Connecting wired ethernet camera via wifi

Many of the WIFI extenders have an ethernet port that is used to configure the device. Once parted from the cable the port does not serve as a cable connection through the WIFI. I have a Linksys RE4000W extender that will provide connection through its ethernet ports. If you use an old router look u...

Re: Camera feed not showing

Hi. I'm a complete amateur when it comes to this software, as well as ubuntu in general. So, I installed the 1.32.3 version on ubuntu 16.04. The camera I am trying to connect is a Hikvision DS-2cd2t55fwd-i8. I searched the documentation in both the standard ZM compatibility list and the other one p...

Re: Zoneminder on Ubuntu 19.04

Should add that the script is for AMD64. For other versions follow the procedures to compile the missing file for MP4 support and modify the Zoneminder install package for your version.

Re: 1.32.3 - Can't create frame capture images from video because there is no video file for this event

MP4 support for Disco was changed. Initially I was able to get 1.32.3 working with jpeg file support as noted in the wiki. Today I noticed that mp4 support was figured out for Disco but required compiling a binary and repackaging the ZM install. So, I set out to do a script that does the install fro...
