Re: ZoneMinder Reolink E1 Pro camera issues

I bought a Reolink camera, had to return it. Just did not work very well on Zoneminder. Video became very distorted when analysing. I am using the GW Security 5077 6077 and 5037 cameras which work very well. I even had a Foscam RC2 that was fine too.

Re: Change function of camera when changing Hubitat location mode

Wrote one using groovy (no curl) as well but want to see about getting it running as a systemd service and eventually see if I can run it directly from the Hubitat hub directly when switching location modes.

Change function of camera when changing Hubitat location mode

Switched over to the Hubitat platform: 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 Hubitat location mode changing between [Home] and [Away]. I run it under a cron job every 5 minu...

Re: API not working after upgrade

I do like the new design and it seems to be working very well. Especially the low dev/shm. Re: API - I too seem to be getting the same error on my script. {"success":false,"data":{"name":"An Internal Error Has Occurred.","message":"An Internal Error Has Occurred.","url":"\/zm\/api\/monitors\/3.json?...

Re: Camera Switch to None,Disabled alone

Could you have a script running via cron job that updates camera through api?
Check your Apache access log for POST /zm/api/monitors/x.json where x is the camera's id. around the time it changes.
Your LOG_LEVEL_WEBLOG would need to be set to INFO I believe for it to be logged.

Re: Timestamp in events are not there when using passthrough

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...
