Sure, use this perl script with a "system()" call or "exec()" call (depending on the circumstances) to do what you need with your LED script. http://www.zoneminder.com/wiki/index.php/FAQ#How_can_I_use_ZoneMinder_to_trigger_something_else_when_there_is_an_alarm.3F Where it says "do your stuff here" i...

Thanks for the tip. I had a feeling it was something like that (I've been looking for this for awhile so that my dog's presence at the back door can result in a bell), but I just got the syntax working. In 1.23.3, it's: Notes - matches - NAME_OF_ZONE where NAME_OF_ZONE does not appear to be case sen...

It's an old issue; the very bottom of my first post in this thread noted the same thing awhile back:

Though I was never completely certain if I was the only one who experienced it. :)

That snippet relates to tar files; we are working with ZIP files. Thanks for the tip though!

@blazer: why not? If you have a static IP you can specify one host that can access the database remotely (userID@host), I do this to administer mysql databases all the time. It's a pain when your home ISP changes your IP address, but in my case that only happens maybe once a year or so. @c0mputerkin...

It runs great on a remote windows machine; I had to create a new username and password for it to access mysql.

Then change the port Apache listens on in your ZM box. Since you don't have a router, you skip that step. In your httpd.conf, set "Listen 80" to "Listen 90" and try accessing your box at: (restart apache) <<ipaddress>>:90 Edit: I just saw your first line, every port is blocked? interesting, maybe yo...

On the CPU load, bilinear filtering makes a relatively small difference overall (observed load with 4 cams was 5-9% without, and 7-11% with it turned on for all 4 cams). If you're in the mood to experiment...just a few ideas: 1. Option to throttle update speed. It appears to update in realtime, whic...

Leandro, this is a really nice viewer! I had just been using FF on my desktop to view streams, but it just hogs memory forever until FF eventually crashes (a known issue, I know). This is a much more elegant solution and I like the fact that it's a standalone EXE. Just a note to anyone who uses this...

OP: you can change the port Apache listens on, then open up the relevant port on your router. How to do this is beyond the scope of a single post, and running a home server that is accessible on the internet is almost always disallowed by home broadband providers (and mobile providers as well). That...

That makes sense phil, good todo item. Either way, if you don't advertise your ZM box it's fairly unlikely someone is going to go to such lengths to guess filenames, and you could always use basic auth for another layer of protection.

Yep - you can edit /etc/apache2/conf.d/zoneminder.conf (or wherever yours sits - this is Ubuntu server 7.10) and where it says "Options Indexes FollowSymLinks", put a "-" sign before the word "Indexes". Mine now reads: Options -Indexes FollowSymLinks This doesn't stop someone from guessing a filenam...

Uncheck ZM_OPT_FAST_DELETE.

You're probably going to want to spend some time reviewing the documentation - it's just a fact of life with anything as featured and complex as a ZoneMinder installation.

It's not a filter option, it's in the ZM options page. This is the expected behavior - you delete the entries in the database and zmaudit comes along later (interval also specified in the options) and deletes the events.
