Further discussion about dealing with fog/vehicle lights at night...

In a previous response from knnniggett (thank you btw), this list was given as one recommended way to set up a camera for outdoor use. I wanted to discuss this further in its own thread since I had already done all of these steps previous to this list being posted. 1) Delete all the preclusive zones...

Re: Different red outline issue...possible broken preclusion zone logic?

Please leave your assumptions that less is better at the metaphorical door. This is a technical support forum, and more data is definitely better. The Forum Rules, which you read, quite literally say that. This is not a joke. I have yet to encounter a post with too much data (the search key works q...

Re: Real-time stats viewable?

Actually, this is a separate issue with another camera. I had made two changes: 1) I changed the motion detection of my zones to the preset Best, High Sensitivity from Fast, High Sensitivity. 2) I enabled the config setting "Use a weighted algorithm to calculate the centre of an alarm." Yet as I was...

Re: Where to change ZM memory usage above 50%?

Thank you, that worked. I attempted to edit the documentation to add some details about that solution to cover other possible distros, but when I clicked on the "Edit on GitHub" link at the top, I got a 404 error: https://github.com/ZoneMinder/ZoneMinder/blob/ee889678cc9dde8772b3ebbfadd0640cf158cd26...

Re: Different red outline issue...possible broken preclusion zone logic?

We here in this technical support forum are mere mortals. We don't have a crystall ball, nor do we have magical powers. Until you produce the data we need, then we can't give you a complete answer. I imagine you say this often here (I saw it in the READ MY FIRST forum post too). As someone who work...

Re: Where to change ZM memory usage above 50%?

knnniggett, Are you talking about this line? "If you want to increase this limit to 70% of your memory, add the following to /etc/fstab tmpfs /run/shm tmpfs defaults,noexec,nosuid,size=70% 0 0" df -h shows the path is /dev/shm: tmpfs 3.7G 3.1G 658M 83% /dev/shm not /run/shm I thought those instructi...

Where to change ZM memory usage above 50%?

According to the docs:
https://zoneminder.readthedocs.io/en/stable/faq.html

"Also remember by default ZM only uses 50% of your available memory unless you change it."

I'd like to bump this up to 70% or 80%, but I can't find out where to modify this setting.

Re: Different red outline issue...possible broken preclusion zone logic?

knnniggett, Interesting, Since you're asking for more information, can it be implied that it's possible to have an alarmed frame, triggered by motion, and not have any red outlines on it? I figured my particular circumstance ruled out a lot of the reasons for any additional information. Let me see i...

Different red outline issue...possible broken preclusion zone logic?

I followed the instructions and re-built the rpm for centos using the git repository for the other problem with red outlines not getting painted into the frames. However, I seem to still be having a problem since alarms are triggering, but nothing is showing as outlined. Here's an example of an alar...

Real-time stats viewable?

Is there a way to look at the real-time zone stats on a live feed? I've got some activity that isn't triggering an alarm and I want to figure out if it's because of not sensitive enough active zones or too sensitive preclusive zones.

If I write this, will it be adopted?

I'd like to modify the export code so that it generates a filename that includes the camera name, and a timestamp so that I don't have to manually rename the zip files each time I export (it's currently always named zmexport.zip). If I do this and submit a pull request, will it be adopted?

Any way to default to "High B/W"?

I haven't had to deal with slow bandwidth for quite some time now -- hell, my cell phone gets faster data rates than my home.

How can I configure zoneminder to default to "high" instead of "low" when opening in a browser?

Auto-tuning of zones based on user feedback....

I know this is a pie-n-the-sky request -- It's likely way too complex but ... The best analogy would be spam filtering --- some filters allow one to train the filter by telling it what is spam and what is ham. I'm looking for something similar here. As I go through the captured events, I can flag it...

Additional info for alarm frames...

Currently, there is an existing feature that will draw a border around the area of the image that triggered the event. This is nice. What I'd also like is feedback that would tell me the sensitivity numbers for that zone so that the frame wouldn't have triggered -- I.E. find the threshold. This woul...
