Re: External storage

Did you chown the mount to www-data (deb) or apache (centos)?

Re: Rebuilt Pi 4 4G w/1T SSD

Post logs. You will have slowdown running X / chromium on the Pi. I would advise against doing that. Are you able to get one camera working? Try one first. Don't setup all of them at once. You have posted other similar posts, where I think you managed to get it working with GPU_MEM set to 512 on the...

Re: refresher on adding ip cams again.

It would be helpful if you could detail what paths you used to get the camera working. Other people will come across these posts, and would benefit in that knowledge.

A walkthrough for adding ip cameras is on the wiki at https://wiki.zoneminder.com/Finding_Camera_Stream_Paths

Re: The requested address '/zm/api/' was not found on this server.

There is no need to preface this command with a login.json. API commands can be called without logging in be...

Re: New ZM Instant Event Notify daemon project published

On your readme at the end, the second gist link is broken.

For offloading camera motion detection. It's already in ZM. https://wiki.zoneminder.com/Axis_Motion_Detection How it is implemented depends on the camera. In 2.5 Disk requirements, you mention mocord mode. you mean modect. Mocord records 24/7. Modect only records events. Your calculations seem off f...

I can't speak for docker w/zm (hopefully someone else will chime in) but you can always backup the db and then go back / restore should something go wrong.

Re: My first camera

Review https://wiki.zoneminder.com/Hardware_Compatibilty_List to see existing Hikvision paths. It's likely to work. There should also be a user manual for the camera that documents the path. Their cameras are fairly well supported. I would recommend you purchase 1 camera, test that it works, then bu...

Re: No Video in ZM Console

What is the model of camera? What install instructions did you use? What are your source settings for the camera?

Can you watch the stream in VLC or FFMPEG?
