Ability to replay existing events against new zone settings...

For some areas outside, getting the cameras to capture just what I want is fairly hard to do (More so at night with passing vehicles, or stormy weather). Currently I am looking at the false positives, checking the alarm frame(s) to see where things are triggering, and then guessing at what to adjust...

Re: API: Can someone tell me why this doesn't work?

Thanks for the background info asker, and for breathing new life into the API.

It's not even funny how many frameworks there are for php now. I wonder why cakePHP was chosen.

Re: Questions about 'states'

Thanks jtech. Others have mentioned creating duplicate monitors to solve other issues too. I'll have to investigate this further... Does that increase cpu usage? I remember setting up monitors before and disabling them, yet I saw zmc processes that weren't 0% utilization. I'm thinking that fancy new...

Re: API: Can someone tell me why this doesn't work?

asker, The docs state: The API is built in CakePHP and lives under the /api directory. It provides a RESTful service and supports CRUD (create, retrieve, update, delete) functions for Monitors, Events, Frames , Zones and Config. Since it states "Frames" is already supposed to be part of the API, and...

Re: Questions about 'states'

Thanks for the reply knnniggett.

So the "state" information is only the configuration options under "Source" for each monitor, and maybe the settings under "Options" for the entire system?

Re: API: Can someone tell me why this doesn't work?

Lol, when I tried that I got this: Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 134217728 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 32 bytes) in /usr/share/zoneminder/www/api/lib/Cake/Model/Datasource/Database/Mysql.php on line 274 So, yeah, it's returning all the frames in the entire database. No matter what I tri...

Quality of RTSP question...

I noticed that when viewing a live feed from my camera, the quality isn't quite as good as when I use the camera's own web interface.

Is this an artifact of using rtsp, or is the lesser quality a result of going through ffmpeg?

Questions about 'states'

Can different states contain different zones? It seems like whenever I switch zones from the console, it overwrites the zones I had created for a different state. I'm not sure if this is because I may have accidentally clicked "save" instead of "apply" after selecting the different state or not. To ...

Re: Is there a way to only create an event if x number of consecutive alarm frames?

Thanks again asker.

I went ahead and added this to the cron script that swaps between sunrise and sunset:

curl -XPUT -k https://127.0.0.1/zm/api/monitors/1.json -d "Monitor[AlarmFrameCount]=2"

This API stuff opens doors... really like it.

Re: Is there a way to only create an event if x number of consecutive alarm frames?

Ah, thanks for that clarification.

Is that variable one that gets saved with the "state"? I.E. something I can use during "sunset" mode only?

It would be great if that setting was per zone instead of per monitor.

Is there a way to only create an event if x number of consecutive alarm frames?

I'm looking to do what this person asked 6 years ago: https://forums.zoneminder.com/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=15176 I live in an area where at night, the fog gets thick enough to cause mist to form. This looks like little flurries to the cameras and cause all kinds of spurious false alarms to trigger. I'...

Re: Linked monitors question...

Nevermind, I was doing what the FAQ mentioned I shouldn't -- looped the monitors.

So, just to be clear, if I link Monitor1 to Monitor2, but not Monitor2 to Monitor1, the linking is really bidirectional anyway, correct? If Monitor2 triggers, it will record on Monitor1 too?

How to purge the log?

In setting up the ZoneAlarm, I ran into some errors in the beginning that I was able to fix. However, now the "log" link on the main console still shows red. I'd like to purge the log if possible to clear this. Clicking on log and clicking on "clear" wipes the website view of logs entries, but a sub...
