Re: IR lighting on/off depending on image brightness

So it doesn't have built-in IR cut?
Unless there's a zm feature I'm not aware of, I don't think so.

Re: Using Raspberry Pi 4's versus a old computer

The problem is it uses a lot of power and even the best home use battery backup system I can buy cannot power it for more than 15 minutes or so. I've solved that by using a battery (35AH deep cycle), charger and inverter and a relay. When power is on, the UPS (APC) passes the AC and charges the int...

What's this to do with ZM?

Re: Upgrade 1.36.5 to 1.36.7 - Montage image quality degraded

I suspect zms is getting overrun...can you reduce frame rate and/or resolution to see if that helps?
The bit with how the scale and layout work has been more or less that way for a while. Not likely relevant to the quality issue.

Re: same duration events

Zone mods: go to the Console. Click the zone column of the camera (probably/should be 1 default) You'll see a view of the camera. If the default zone is there, it'll be all reddish - the active zone. If not, make a new one. Click on the image or zone - the options appear. You can adjust the zone are...

Re: same duration events

Not sure this is even on the radar. anymore.
Storage is cheap. :)
So I think most of us just use Mocord to get everything, even if motion that is there is too small to trigger detection.
Not saying this isn't a problem, but the workaround is simple.

Re: NVR replacement ZM high CPU

FWIW, more cores make a big diff, if that's an option.
Also, if you can drop from 10 to say 6FPS will probably also be a big help.
And crf doesn't matter with passthrough.

The Zoneminder master 1.37.1~20210830133533-bionic is working perfectly ! Are you running anything using Video Writer with h264 libx264? On my focal install all the frames are scrunched into the first couple of seconds of the mp4, or it has just the first frame for the whole thing. Reverting to 1.3...
