possibility of making a light sensor to put in the mailbox that will make an alarm?

how possible is it to make a light sensor that would send an alarm to ZM when its opened? i do have a camera facing the mailbox, unfortunately since its close to the road i cant put a motion on it to make an alarm. it would have to be solar powered, or maybe a a rechargeable battery would last long ...

Feature Request.

Setting the debug level to 3 lets you see the zone information, like pixel diff and pixel area.. which is very convenient for setting up the zones.. altho to see it you have to download the debug log and its not real time.

i request this to be added to the alarm notes.

Re: how are zones order processed?

so i just tried this which i think is the way preclusive zones are meant to work. i have a sidewalk going up to my porch, i really dont want my camera telling me when people are leaving, just coming. so i put the zone like this. on the path far from the house, i put a small active zone then in the m...

Re: how are zones order processed?

Re: are blobs working in 1.32.3?

can blobs be by themselves? No, Blob method is a progressive detection algorithm. Threshold then Area, Filtered Area then Blobs. https://wiki.zoneminder.com/Understanding_ZoneMinder's_Zoning_system_for_Dummies https://zoneminder.readthedocs.io/en/stable/userguide/definezone.html are blobs working i...

Re: how are zones order processed?

Zones are loaded Sorted by Type, then Id. Sorting is in ascending order so sorting by type, the order is: 'Active','Inclusive','Exclusive','Preclusive','Inactive','Privacy' So Preclusive will not be first. This might be the problem. hmm, preclusive should be first?? its pointless to have the alarm ...

how are zones order processed?

what order are the zones processed? are they by name? or size? or internal number when created? i have an active zone with a preclusive zone ontop of it. the active zone has a threshold of 25 and the preclusive 150. each one has a 3/3/2 area.. basically the default preset. i live on a corner and thi...

my driveway camera faces the street its a T intersection and at night the cars that turn left shine right into the camera lens causing it to do an adjustment and it causes an alarm. so ive setup a small square (its only 400 px) that is pretty much exactly where the lights are on the cars and i set i...

Frame Pictures out of order.

when i view frames for alarms and i click next or previous, i get pics from other cameras or ones days old even tho they are sequentially in numbers.
like Frame 16473-1100 might be from one camera, and Frame 16473-1101 from another.. then Frame 16473-1099 is from 3 days ago.
