Changing Hikvision settings and updating firmware

Not a compatibility listing. In order to change some of the settings (such as the on screen display) or even to upgrade firmware on Hikvision IP cameras - at least for my model DS-2CD2042WD-I - you need to have their web plugin installed, and the plugin only seems to work with Internet Explorer. I h...

Re: upgraded from fedora 27 to fedora 29 and zoneminder fails to start

Yes I do thanks for letting me know :) I've switched back to stable and it's working fine. And FYI for others, if you need to switch from the testing package back to the stable, disable your testing repo, and then I had to use the the package, version and arch for the install to pull in the stable v...

Re: upgraded from fedora 27 to fedora 29 and zoneminder fails to start

Thanks, I installed a test build (zoneminder-1.32.3-1.1.20181211gitg1e8c4276b.fc29.x86_64 and its related packages), and it's working now :-D I did notice there are leftover merge / conflict tags in the README.httpd, these: <<<<<<< HEAD If this step is not performed correctly, the web console will a...

upgraded from fedora 27 to fedora 29 and zoneminder fails to start

Running zoneminder on Fedora 29 via an upgrade from Fedora 27. I'm using zoneminder via rpmfusion, currently at: zoneminder-1.32.2-1.fc29.x86_64 On fc27, I was also running 1.32.2.-1 with no issues, the package showed zoneminder-1.32.2-1.fc27.x86_64 Starting zoneminder fails, in the log files, I see...

Re: Upgrades issues

It most certainly does: https://github.com/ZoneMinder/zoneminder/blob/master/distros/redhat/readme/README.Redhat7#L7 This tripped me up - the new install step 6 explicitly mentions the required symlink, but upgrade step 3 doesn't :-( I'm now trying to figure out what I need in the zoneminder.conf -...

Re: Help: Connecing IP cameras directly to computer vis ethernet

My question is: Can I connect these IP cameras directly to the my unbuntu/zoneminder computer using ethernet cable? The BTHomeHub4 router is downstairs and it would be a major job to feed ethernet cable from the attic down to the router. I assume I would have to buy some multi-port ethernet switch ...

Re: Amcrest IP2M-844E setup notes

Aww, I found these:

https://askdns.com/ip/54.158.250.32

Maps to amcrestcloud.com, camcloud.com and foscamcloud.com

https://askdns.com/ip/52.52.42.29

Doesn't show any mappings.

https://askdns.com/ip/54.87.129.131

Maps to amcrestview.com

But the above all have aws host names too.

Re: Amcrest IP2M-844E setup notes

The cameras frequently want to connect to 52.52.42.29 (UDP/8800), 54.158.250.32 (HTTP), and 54.87.129.131 (TCP/12366); these are blocked. The above are all amazonaws.com addresses, but I'd guess they are mapped to actual host names. Do you have tcpdump output for DNS lookups for the camera? I don't...

Re: Inadvertant upgrade from 1.28 to 1.29 now socket_sendto issue

Thanks, but I was not looking for a full install or re-install :-( I changed PATH_ZMS from /cgi-bin/zm/nph-zms to /cgi-bin-zm/nph-zms, and it's now working. I guess that /etc/httpd/conf.d/zoneminder.conf was modified to use cgi-bin-zm, but the upgrade didn't change PATH_ZMS. This in /etc/httpd/conf....

Re: Inadvertant upgrade from 1.28 to 1.29 now socket_sendto issue

I'm hitting this same issue on a Fedora 23 system, I haven't tried the re-install option yet. Edit: I'm now at zoneminder-1.29.0-3.fc23.x86_64 via the /etc/yum.repos.d/zmrepo-fedora.repo that points to http://zmrepo.mehvc.com/f/$releasever/$basearch I did shutdown zoneminder, and delete old sockets ...

Good timing because the Barn Swallows returned today.
However, the Sparrow has been inspecting the nest daily so it is going to be interesting to see what happens.
Very nice, thanks for sharing!

Nope, please post if you find anything!

I'll probably get a c270 or similar at some point, though the behavior of zoneminder and my quickcam pro is annoying, it's still working OK :-(

Re: Low-light behavior of cheap vs branded cams

And, I just noticed my quickcam pro is back down to 5 FPS again, and per my other post, no idea how to get it to a higher FPS :-(

Re: Low-light behavior of cheap vs branded cams

BTW, let us know if you do try one of those newer quickcam pros, I was thinking of getting one.
