Starting ZM with an externally-connected button/switch?

Given my daily routines varies so much I cannot currently use crontabs to satisfactorily manage the starting/stopping of my ZM installation. Hence as things stand I have a simple start/stop script on my desktop which I use to start/stop ZM when I leave/return-to the house. It works okay - for me at ...

Check the rating label on the power supply - it'll tell you what input voltages/frequencies it will accept. I suspectyou will find it'll happily take 60Hz as outside the US many power supplies these days are multi-voltage SMPS's and hence are quite adaptable to a variety of inputs. If you have no jo...

Is there meant to be a space before that trailing slash? Or rather, is there meant to be a slash there?

It might have nothing to do with it, but thought I'd mention it...

Okay, I see. Thanks for the clarification. All I really need is a quick way to see a snapshot of the current camera view on my PDA so this will be ideal.

Will give it a try!

I like the sound of this as I too occasionally access ZM via my PDA. Currently I'm rotating the screen every time but to not have to would obviously be a bonus. I'm completely ignorant when it comes to patching so could you briefly summarise what I have to do to implement this? Also, can you confirm...

You could always 'roll your own' with a breakout plug/socket on the unused cores of the cable.

I can certainly recommend the Panasonic range of IP cameras (I've got the BL-C1 myself) - high quality piece of kit, highly configurable and superb support behind them (manual and website).

I've just replied to your PM but see you're now sorted! Anyway, just to add a few more things for anyone else that might be interested: The path can also be set to /nphmotiongjpeg?Res... etc to capture images as an MJPEG stream. I capture at around 3fps and found that snapshotjpeg used less network ...

Furthermore, if an alarm occurs and you want to include x seconds of preamble then all those frames would be at a lower quality. This could obscure valuable detail of activity that may not have been high enough to trigger the alarm earlier but still important enough to want to retain.

Good point! Hadn't occured to me the OP may not necessarily be in the UK!

Re: CCTV Benefits ?

As expected all you have to be aware of if that you can only record images of your property, and not public places, plus exhibiting a sign that shows CCTV cameras are in use for security and crime prevention. They really need to check their facts before giving such broadbrush advice. You should ask...

I could be way off the target here (as it sure sounds like you know what you're doing!) but isn't the 'Idle' referring to the state as in not 'alarm' or 'alert'? Or had you triggered it (motion or forced alarm) yet it still didn't change?
