Change function of camera when changing SmartThings location mode

Not sure if anyone is interested in this but I wrote a PHP CLI script to update certain (inside) monitors to change from [Monitor] to [Modect] and back depending on Smarthings location mode changing between [Home] and [Away]. I run it under a cron job every 5 minutes. #!/usr/bin/php <?php /*********...

I just found it odd that Zoneminder puts the timestamp on the live preview and not the stored events.

Re: gapless events pause between events

I guess no one else has seen this issue. Anyhow looking at another problem with timestamps not posting in stored events I changed [Video Writer = X264 Camera Passthrough] to be [Video Writer = X264 Encode] and I now can review gapless events without it pausing between each event. Only problem now is...

Timestamp in events are not there when using passthrough

Is it normal for the Zoneminder's timestamp to be missing in stored events when using [Video Writer = X264 Camera Passthrough] vs [Video Writer = X264 Encode]?

Re: Zoneminder does not start in the running state after reboot

Issued command
sudo systemctl enable zoneminder.service
and that did the trick.
Thank you for pointing me in the right direction Bluemax!

Re: Zoneminder does not start in the running state after reboot

I thought that is what /etc/init.d/zoneminder was suppose to do. Not sure why this is not working. I even added the sleep 15 command in there after start() Looking through the syslog I do not see Apr 11 07:32:11 railcar44 systemd[1]: Starting ZoneMinder CCTV recording and surveillance system... unti...

gapless events pause between events

When viewing an event, selecting Replay "None", plays the event once and stops. Selecting Replay "Single Event" plays the event over and over without stopping. Selecting Replay "All Events" Plays each event without intervention, in order with a 1 minute 7 second pause between each event. Selecting R...

Re: New Storage issue

Actually on my system ZoneMinder set the default events storage to be /var/cache/zoneminder/events owner = www-data with read/write and file create/delete access group = www-data with read/write and file create/delete access and that works. I'm just trying to get it to point to a larger drive and th...

[Solved] New Storage issue

Bought a 2TB hard drive, formatted it ext4, mounted it at /mnt/Storage_A, created folders /zoneminder/events. Cannot get ZoneMinder to access that area to store events. web_php.log keeps posting 03/20/21 17:53:28.438922 web_php[7819].WAR [192.168.54.88] [Storage::disk_usage_percent: path /mnt/Storag...
