Raspbian Install + Benchmark

I tested out an RPI3 and wrote up some notes. An install process is in the writeup, as well as on https://wiki.zoneminder.com/Raspbian . Because I am not allowed to attach pdfs here it can be downloaded from https://git.steakelectronics.com/adminguy/ZM_Docs/src/branch/master/20181227_RPI3_Install_an...

Re: Alarm Mode - Use Static JPG and ZMTrigger as alarm only

Guardline sounds good, though outside of my budget. I am currently using microwave motion sensors (HFS-DC06H), but they are so effective, they pick up mice on the ceiling tiles... The Numato board is interesting, though I don't see the benefit of those over something like an Arduino. The screw termi...

Re: Error Installation Pi 1 : error 1698 (28000)

Mysql has a different password than what you are typing. Reset the password for mysql by doing

Code: Select all

dpkg-reconfigure mysql-server-#.#
as root. Replace the # with the version of your mysql.

Re: Error Installation Pi 1 : error 1698 (28000)

Sounds like mysql doesn't like the password. You can enter the password in on the command line and omit the .my.cnf if you aren't worried particularly about security. I'm not sure why that guide used the .my.cnf file for the password. Seems overkill for the home user. I don't have an RPI1 though, so...

Re: planning home area cover

Should I try to cover the perimeter on the fence with many cheaper/2MP cams or attach better (maybe 4-5MP) cams on the balconies of the house so as to cover more (but not all) of the area of the field? The field is full of trees (only few tall ones, more olive trees, fruit trees, bushes, etc.). Als...

Re: Multiple zma processes on Record - ARM platform

Maybe I am misreading you logs, but it looks like you are attempting to use x264 encode. That mode is not currently compatible on Arm architecture, and I'm not sure how you even enabled it since we disabled it from the gui. It will appear to work, but the recorded video will not be playable. Passth...

Re: Multiple zma processes on Record - ARM platform

record_multiplezmas_weblog2.jpg The errors don't seem to indicate anything regarding ZMA. I tried changing Analysis Frames, as well as increasing Buffer frames, but there is no difference. Resolution is 800x600. FPS is limited at 20, and ZMC records around 11FPS. I tried limiting FPS at the camera ...

Multiple zma processes on Record - ARM platform

I did some benchmarking of ZM and found that Modect performed better than Record. It looks like Record spawns a number of zma daemons that load the CPU. This was using ZM 1.32.2 on the RPI 3. To install, I used Raspbian Stretch Lite, and added the sid and experimental repos, per the guide here: http...

Re: Wiki /Raspbian: "Install Jessie 64bit" - Newbie Confused

I will take a look at the wiki article for Raspbian and update it. Anyone is welcome to make a wiki account, you need only send a message to one of the admins (take a look at the "website issues" forum here for more details). It had been locked down, because spam was a problem when anyone could crea...

Re: Wiki /Raspbian: "Install Jessie 64bit" - Newbie Confused

You should be able to get ZM running on Raspbian Stretch 32 bit. I have done this. The wiki may be incorrect. Yes, as you mentioned, there are severe limitations with an RPI vs a traditional desktop/server. I wouldn't recommend it for anything more than SD or lower resolution of a limited number of ...

Re: Capture still images from ZM

ZM should be able to serve the latest image (I assume jpg, jpeg) from the monitor. See this post: https://forums.zoneminder.com/viewtopic.php?f=36&t=26905&p=104121 You can grab the latest image with the following command: zmu -m 1 -i -U username -P password Run it every 90 seconds (or however often ...

Re: ZM hardware video accelerated

Video manipulation is controlled by ffmpeg. So the answer is: if ffmpeg is compiled with HW acceleration in my distribution then zoneminder is HW accelerated :D else zoneminder is NOT HW accelerated :cry: endif Look at the source code. From my understanding Libavcodec is used for the "ffmpeg method...
