Re: Zoneminder won't stay connected to camera

I'm trying to troubleshoot this still so I've enabled debug logging. I'm just trying to find anything that seems relevant by looking at timestamps during instances where the cameras aren't visible, and also those files which mention the camera that can't be viewed. So far I've found these entries wh...

Re: Zoneminder won't stay connected to camera

From my experience with Zmodopipe, I found that it was easier to use a Video encoder for analog streams. See https://wiki.zoneminder.com/Hardware_compatibility_List#IP_Video_Encoder Used devices are available for <$100. Well I'd probably just buy more IP Cams if I was going to spend that kind of mo...

ZM is not calling up ssmtp when sending email

I've got ZM 1.30.4 on Ubuntu 16.04.5 and I've got ssmtp all properly configured and working to send emails. I've got the /etc/ssmtp.conf file set with proper permissions for www-data- to access it. When I do this... sudo -u www-data ssmtp -v myemail < mail.txt The email sends through just fine, and ...

Getting a sound to play on alarm

Okay well I had hacked in a fix for this https://forums.zoneminder.com/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=27129 But since Chrome upgraded from that version to 68.blahblahblah it no longer works. Apparently they're implementing a whole new API. I suppose my other recourse would be to make a script that will play a ...

Re: How to create image of ZM computer?

Are you trying to make an image you can put on a new disk and have it boot right up with everything as you've installed? If I were you I would just clone to a new disk now versus waiting for failure, drive failures may not be catastrophic and can cause a lot of headscrathing when they begin to act e...

Re: Analysis outlines on event thumbnails NOT in frames.php?

Oh that sounds pretty nice, would it work on a tablet version of chrome very well too? I have been hesitant to try out 1.31 until its stable release, but there's already lots of new features I wanna use.

Well I had a really long piece of feedback that the forum destroyed so feel free to ask any questions... But basically I still have a couple 4.4 devices I have to use because I'm poor. One in particular will not work with anything besides zmninja, and has actually resulted in stopping a home invasio...

Analysis outlines on event thumbnails NOT in frames.php?

Did things change in 1.30? I thought I remembered the red analysis outline being visible on the event thumbnails. Meaning, I click a monitor or use the filter to get events, and the thumbnails used had the outline in them. Now I have to click the event, click frames, and then click the alarmed frame...

API seems to fail when attempting to use component log files

I was trying to setup ZoneMinder to send logs to /var/log/zm/ in individual log files so that I could track it outside of syslog. Anyway, I noticed that when I enabled the "component logs" option in the Logging options of the web console, that the API would no longer authenticate properly. zmNinja w...

So I have 3 exterior cameras, and 1 interior camera. The exterior cameras monitor my front, back and side. I live in an apartment so I only need to monitor 3 exit/entrances from the outside. My kitchen is a central location in the apartment, meaning all rooms lead here, so I have an interior monitor...

Re: Connecting zoneminder to swan media port

Did you try VLC with your DVR stream? If you can get it to work in VLC it will work in Zoneminder. Yeah it just threw errors about the stream not having a frame and some kind of codec error I didn't understand, but it would show a frame of video and then crash. To be specific Swann DVR4-1300 model ...
