Re: Working QSee/Swann/Zmodo DVR support! - Updated 2013-04-21

I wrote up something on Zmodopipe in the wiki. Might help someone. https://wiki.zoneminder.com/Zmodopipe Thanks! Works okay enough for me so far. I have my DVR being captured on zoneminder via s-video but not being able to distinguish which camera set the motion is kind of a pain. For a while I won...

Connecting zoneminder to Swann DVR4-1300 Media Port

I have an old DVR that I want to setup to work with ZoneMinder. Right now I have it setup to send the TV-Out to my PC with a capture card and monitor it thorugh zoneminder like that, but I don't like that every channel is brought on one signal to be treated as a single monitor by zoneminder. I've be...

Re: Expand play sound on alarm capabilities (WEB_SOUND_ON_ALARM)

Hi david, I realize this is an older post, but it is more recent than most on this topic. I made an attempt at #1 on your list. I tried to take what I knew from C coding and carry it over, but I'm no coder. It's been working for me so far however. https://forums.zoneminder.com/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=27...

POPUP_ON_ALARM for Chrome and SOUND_ON_ALARM for montage view

Introductary Banter Hi everybody. So neither of these features were working properly for me. Well, SOUND_ON_ALARM was, but not for montage view. The pop-up on alarm never worked for me either. I spent the last couple of days figure out how to hack them into shape. I don't really know JavaScript or ...

Re: WEB_POPUP_ON_ALARM doesn't (and has never) work

Was kind of hoping to find a Linux-based browser that it would work for at least. I've managed to find a workaround at least. if ( POPUP_ON_ALARM ) { if (navigator.userAgent.indexOf('Chrome/') > 0) { if (window.detwin) { window.detwin.close(); window.detwin = null; } } window.detwin = window.open('h...

SV3C 1080P IP66, PoE, Dome Camera for $45? or ReoLink RLC-420 for $60?

Hey I'm looking around for some PoE cameras. I don't need anything fancy, and in fact would like to strip as much bells and whistles off as I can to take price down. These are within my budget range for cameras, and claim they're ZoneMinder compatible, but just wondering if anyone here has experienc...

WEB_POPUP_ON_ALARM doesn't (and has never) work

Okay so I was looking through options to get my browser window to alert me on motion, I got the sound working, but this WEB_POPUP_ON_ALARM doesn't seem to work at all. I've searched, and all I can find is a handful of threads that were either never replied to, or explaining that your browser must su...

Re: Instant notification on alarm

Cool! I only just realized that the alerts weren't really instantaneous. I also like that this enables you to send it to multiple email addresses. Is there any way you think you could modify this to send a notification to one email address or another based on which zone was triggered? So for example...

Re: Another Schedule Question

I'd be curious to see what you come up with. I use ZoneMinder with one single monitor that is a 4 channel DVR so everything I do is by zone only and not by monitor. Would really help me out to do something similar.

Re: Can't initiate email notifications

You set your filter to run in the background right? Open up the Log and force an alarm, then copy and past so we can see what ZM is doing. If you set the "Filter Log - Copmonet" drop-down to zmfilter.py, you should see entries like this... Date/Time Component Server PID Level Message File Line 2017-...

Filtering and Gapless Events

So I'm running Zoneminder with one monitor that is an S-Video source of my 4 channel analog DVR system. I have zones setup for each different camera on places I want to monitor such as my BackPorch, my Porch/Walk, and my BedroomDoor and BathroomDoor (inside). I setup a filter to exclude anything tha...

Re: Thinking about ways to improve my security system...

Here is a photo of an IP camera. There are two connectors shown, a RJ-45 port and a power connector. The user has two options. They can power the device through a POE Switch in which case the power connector is not used. The other option is to use a router (or non-POE switch) plus an external power...
