Viewing uploaded Zoneminder images

Hi,

I have ZM set up to upload old events onto a separate server. What if I later want to go back and view the old events? I could manually sift through the ZIPs, find the right one, convert to video etc, but that's all very awkward. Has anyone worked out a smarter way to do this?

thanks,

Dan

Re: Reolink or Amcrest or Hikvision?

Just to add, for anyone else trying to make the Reo-link work - I had to tick the "use RTSP response media URL" checkbox

On third thoughts, even swatch is overkill - awk does the trick, run at reboot with cron:

tail -F /var/log/syslog | awk ‘/FireEscape.*alarm start/ { system("wget http://[openhab server]/CMD?CamFireEscape=ON -P /tmp") }'

(and that flicks a virtual switch in my openHAB setup to run notifications etc)

Re: Trigger notification as soon as alarm starts

On second thoughts - ouch - much too complicated for me. I just want to run a simple script when an alarm is received, and zmeventserver looks like overkill. Using swatch to monitor syslog seems a lot easier...

Trigger notification as soon as alarm starts

Hi, I'm trying to trigger a notification as soon as an alarm starts (i.e. immediately, and not once the event has finished). So I set up a filter running in the background which has "monitor name equal to [name of monitor]". However this only fires when the event is finished. Is there a way I can tr...
