Re: [?] Brightness spike with Logitech C310

I don't have that camera but could you use the settings in the zone to set maximums so radical changes don't trigger an alarm.

See https://wiki.zoneminder.com/Defining_Zo ... armed_Area

Check the various "maximum" settings as well as perhaps " Overload Frame Ignore Count"

Anyone using filters with a script to encrypt emails or uploads?

Hi, I have a camera inside and for security I would like to have zoneminder send me an email when an event is triggered. Possibly with the video or a few images from it. This way if someone breaks in and steals the computer running Zoneminder I still have the videos/image remotely stored. The proble...

Re: HIKvision DS-2CD2132F-IS firmware versionV5.3.0 build 150513

Hi, can you see the image using the hikvision admin page? Firmware on Hikvision cameras can be a bit dicey because there are all sorts of variations such as US version, international and Chinese. Recently they started making it hard to put firmware for a different region on a certain cam (people oft...

Re: Zoneminder crashing and taking down apache on signal los

knnniggett, Thanks again for your reply. I really do appreciate your time and efforts. Unfortunately the state of things with Zoneminder in Gentoo seems a bit "spartan". I recently tried posting a topic in the forums there to rally some users and perhaps developers to fix things a little bit after h...

Re: Zoneminder crashing and taking down apache on signal los

Hmmm. I was able to get a live version from source compiled by making a new ebuild (took some hacking as the old one was from the svn days and needed to be changed to git) but now I am running into some more serious issues. 1. At localhost/zm I see the following in the upper corner: (note: some log ...

Re: Zoneminder crashing and taking down apache on signal los

Known issue. Pretty sure we merged some changes in master to alleviate this. Try using a development snapshot of the master branch. Packages are available for Redhat distros, Ubuntu, and Debian. Thanks Knnniggett. I found a live ebuild (zoneminder-9999) for Gentoo at gpo (dot) zugaina (dot) org/AJA...

Zoneminder crashing and taking down apache on signal loss

Hi, after a lot of struggle I was able to get zoneminder working on Gentoo Linux. The biggest problem I am facing at the moment is that for some strange reason when the signal is lost to the camera (whether it is due to use of the microwave, the cable getting unpluged, having to reset the connection...
