Re: Time dependent zones

The way I have solved this problem is to make duplicated monitors with the same zones, but different settings on the zones. I switch the active monitors based on sunrise and sunset using sunwait ( https://sourceforge.net/projects/sunwait4windows/ ). It's kind of a pain to set it up this way, but on...

Re: Instant notification on alarm + machine learning object detection

Well, I'm not really sure what's going on with Mutt for you then. Is there anything in your mail logs? (I'm not sure where that is for systems with systemd; I'm guessing in journalctl. On my system /var/log/maillog keeps track of emails that failed to send.) Since you are not sending image attachmen...

Re: Instant notification on alarm + machine learning object detection

It looks like an error with mutt. Googling the error message turns up some hits ( https://www.google.com/search?q=mutt+error+sending+message+127 ), but I'm not sure if they are helpful. I would recommend taking a look and see if anything seems relevant to your situation. When you sent a test message...

Re: Suitable hardware ?

I use one of these with four cameras, and it works well: https://www.zotac.com/us/product/mini_pcs/zbox-bi325 It's not particularly fast, but it does the job. I think it could scale to 6 cameras with no issues as long as you don't try to run at a high framerate and resolution. My 4 cameras are each ...

Re: Instant notification on alarm + machine learning object detection

I would like for it to be a maintained part of Zoneminder which could be enabled or disabled as desired. In many installs, I believe that the Zoneminder motion detection works well enough on its own, but in other situations (such as outside) it works not so well and this add-on would dramatically i...

Re: Instant notification on alarm + machine learning object detection

Sure, I'd be honored! What did you have in mind, though, integrating it into ZoneMinder itself in some way, or as a separate script the way it is now?

Re: Instant notification on alarm + machine learning object detection

I added an option called notify_incomplete_events. If set to yes, it will send notifications for events that have not completed yet, so that you can be alerted as soon as possible. This is beneficial if you tend to have long-running events, or just don't want to waste those few seconds while an even...

Re: Instant notification on alarm

I am looking at your zoneminder-notifier. I would like very much to implement it on my ZM install. I have a some questions.... 1 - The readme says "ZoneMinder with API enabled (tested with 1.32.3)" is required. Does your code use any of the API that is not available in older versions such as 1.30.x...

Re: Video not recorded

I really don't see how that patch could have any effect, as the value of staticConfig.video_file_format is '%s/%s' Or at least it is supposed to be. I don't see how it could be anything else. Somehow though it would have to be in order for the code to give the errors you have posted. I don't unders...

Re: Instant notification on alarm

I have ditched my perl script and switched to a Python script that uses the API. Inspired by asker's zmeventserver, I have also added object detection with OpenCV + YOLO v3 to eliminate false notifications, which is working really well. This method also has the benefit of not reading the shared memo...

Re: Machine learning video detection

I have implemented something similar to asker in my own notification daemon. It uses the API and polls for new events at a user-specified frequency (by default, 3 seconds). When ZoneMinder is not running, it checks (by default) every 15 seconds to see if it has started up. If using object detection,...

@abi can this be related?

viewtopic.php?f=38&t=27927#p109118
I think it's different, because in my case no mp4 files were being written at all, and errors were showing up in the logs. But it could possibly be something similar, I guess.

Re: Video not recorded

I got the video working. I had to add the following patch. Apparently staticConfig.video_file_format was not getting set properly for me, and I have no idea why, since it seems to be working everywhere else. Should I file as an issue on Github? --- src/zm_event.cpp 2019-01-21 23:17:19.881961455 -050...

Re: Video not recorded

Similar issue here. I am running ZoneMinder on Slackware. I just upgraded from 1.30.4 to 1.32.3. I have compiled it with ffmpeg, x264, and mp4v2 support. Everything seems to work fine with frames as it did in the previous version, including exporting the video after the fact, but if I try to get it ...
