Re: IR camera and fog

I have seen quite a few moths, far too many spiders but just recently I have quite a few round "floaters". These only occur at night and seem to be transparent, like a soap bubble and always moving at about the same speed with a slow zig-zag or even a circular motion. I'll upload a video/stills to f...

Re: H,View HV-400G2 POE outdoor camera

Just as an update I tried to load a firmware update to these cameras and could not get this to complete even using the suggested Windows/IE platform to connect to the camera. Just for added entertainment the website is offline with an SSL certificate problem so I could not contact the vendor for sup...

Re: Zoneminder unusable: intermittent zmc issue with monitors (start/terminate/restart loop)

I was thinking more of checking you could grab useable data from the camera in the first instance and checking the quality from a sample file.

Re: Upgraded now the play button does not work

I have similar issues on my busiest camera, I have three identical units. The most recent addition runs a steady 10fps, the first one I added wanders its frame rate from 7.5 to 9 fps with the same settings, I cloned the first camera to add the newest and they run through the same POE switch. The tem...

Re: Zoneminder unusable: intermittent zmc issue with monitors (start/terminate/restart loop)

Do your cameras support any other video sources that you could try ?

Have you tried stopping zoneminder completely and grabbing video directly from these sources with ffmpeg to see if they stream correctly independently ?

Spiders

I don't mind spiders generally as every one is worth its weight in mosquitoes, this is a good thing. Spiders seem to like one outside camera quite a lot, this is not a good thing. There are a few brands of Spider-B-gone spray on Amazon that are supposed to keep the hairy little beggars away from cam...

H,View HV-400G2 POE outdoor camera

I have two HV-400G2 cameras working on my first ever install of Zoneminder 1.32 Well its my second install but only because I overestimated the ability of a quad core Intel Atom for the first run. I used a retired Webserver with 16Gb and two quad core opterons to host Ubuntu 18.04.01-LTS and scratch...

Re: Adding a monitor on a new build

Cracked it, I now have two cameras running in monitor mode and will add my settings to the working hardware compatibility section under H.View HV-400G2

ffmpeg is my new favourite utility.

Re: Adding a monitor on a new build

No change, unable to detect any cameras with the interfaces swapped it just broke my IPMI connection.

Re: Adding a monitor on a new build

Aha, I see the ZMOnvif script only works on the first interface.

I will try swapping the private and public interface configurations and report back.

Adding a monitor on a new build

I have a new build of Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS on a dedicated system, wiped and re-installed according to the WiKi on how to do it the easy way, a concise but invaluable bit of reference, many thanks for that. For my own peace of mind the cameras are all on an isolated network with no internet access, the...
