Re: Difficulty installing

Ping @iconnor is this https://zoneminder.readthedocs.io/en/la ... -04-bionic needing to be updated? It still seems to reference 1.32.

Re: time lapse?

Go to 'Defining Monitors' and set all three fps fields to '0.1' This would wreck other things, but should work (in theory) if all I wanted was timelapse. Also, somewhere in the documentation it recommends setting FPS on the camera, not within ZM. All my cameras are set to 10FPS which has worked ver...

Re: Modetect false alarms

I gave up on motion detection on any outdoor scenes long ago. Clouds, winds, headlights all that stuff is motion.

Re: time lapse?

I have this working, but its by no means polished. Its in 2 parts: 1 - a cron script that uses the API to create a 1second alarm on a regular schedule. Works, currently set for every 5 minutes. 2 - Another script that will run once per day that finds the first frame from each alarm, extracts a copy ...

Re: Camers not viewable on lan when no internet connection.

I use local IP address for this situation, usually https://192.168.1.X/zm instead of the DNS name. Your browser may cry and whine about cert mismatch...but this approach always works for me.

Also, the monitor source should be local IP, not any alpha name.

Re: time lapse?

What about using the API to arm the monitor, then immediately disarm it. Should be two simple calls, separated by a couple seconds. This could be done however often you want to pull the time lapse photo. Then run a daily script that would pull the first image from each event and store it somewhere o...

Real time. Store an image from monitor X every specified amount of time.

Re: DAHUA PTZ control

The Amcrest supposedly are rebranded Dahua (confirm, deny anyone?)

Did you try the Amcrest script? I have done no comparison of their API docs, so they may be completely different.

Upgrade from older versions

I have a very reliable 1.30.0 that's been running for a couple years. Is there an upgrade path or do I need to remove and reinstall as though new?

Re: Amcrest control error

Configuration is explained in the documentation here https://zoneminder.readthedocs.io/en/1.34.5/userguide/cameracontrol.html The only tricky part for the Amcrest is the control address. Open the monitor, go to control tab, select controllable, enter "login:password@cameraIP:80" in the control addre...
