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 exampl...

Re: Can't initiate email notifications

This may have been asked before, but do you have your filter set to run in the background? What if you create a new filter that is not set to run in the background, set it to email you, and then hit Execute? Make sure it is something that will return a match. You can use Submit to check.

Re: Instant notification on alarm

A couple more tweaks: 1. Allow sending notifications to more than one address. Just enter multiple addresses in the @toaddrs list. 2. I was previously getting at least two alerts for each event, one for being in alarm/alert/tape state, and the other for a new event. I added a variable alarm_overload...

Re: Instant notification on alarm

I made a couple changes (edited the code in the first post). 1. I found out that if the run state changes (either stopped -> running or in any other way that causes a different set of monitors to be enabled), the list of monitors needs to be rebuilt. Therefore, I put the code to create the list of m...

Re: Can't initiate email notifications

I believe AutoEmail is the flag that gets set for an event matching your filter conditions when you have "Email details of all matches" checked. Just curious, have you tried it without ssmtp? I suppose another thing you could is to add more Info() calls in zmfilter.pl. That way you could see if the ...

Re: Can't initiate email notifications

Not exactly a solution for your filter problem, but you could try this motion alert notification script I created. It doesn't depend on filters, so you can see if that works. Be sure to edit the inputs as described in the first post. https://forums.zoneminder.com/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=26758 Feel free ...

Instant notification on alarm + machine learning object detection

UPDATE 1/31/19: I have ditched the Perl script below and switched to Python with the ZoneMinder API. I have also implemented object detection to eliminate false alerts. See post 12 for more information and a link to the code. It's easy to set up filters to send SMS or email notifications. The proble...

Re: Another Schedule Question

Depending on how many different permutations of zones you want to have, you could just duplicate the monitor but set the zones differently. Then use run states to enable/disable them at different times of the day. This is what I'm doing with one of mine to change motion detection sensitivity for day...

Re: Analysis FPS

Well, I can partially answer my own question. For one thing, the Analysis FPS doesn't have to be an integer, so I set it to 2.5 while my cameras stream at 5 FPS. It does pretty much what I thought, except that when in Modect mode the events will be saved at the Analysis FPS, not the stream FPS. When...

Re: log analysis help requested

Are they IP cameras, though? It could be your ISP being flakey, I guess. What is your system load like?

Re: log analysis help requested

Are these wifi cameras? I had similar problems (with the exception of the ffmpeg warning, as far as I remember) after upgrading my router's firmware, which, as it turned out, made the network unstable and caused the to disconnect frequently. I also ended up with many events caused by "Signal." When ...

Analysis FPS

Hi, I don't see any documentation on this setting. There is a little bit of info on the forums, but not a lot, so I wanted to get some clarification. I have my IP camera set to stream at 5 FPS. That seems to be plenty for recording events, and my wifi bandwidth handles it fine. If the Analysis FPS d...

Re: Clone zones to new monitor

Another thing that I just found out: if I attempt to create zones by entering in values for the points instead of dragging them with the mouse, the areas (listed next to each zone at the bottom when you click on the "zones" link for a monitor) end up all wrong. If you try to enter all the values in ...
