Help please for a new start with motion detection v 1.36
I've been running ZM v 1.34 for about 1.5 years I think and although my motion detection was very imperfect, it was acceptable. What I had was many false positives and few misses.
I had the opportunity of the Xmas break from work to do all those upgrades I need time for and can only do then. For this part of my home setup I was able to upgrade the Operating System, which allowed me to build ZM on a newer version. All this is done and after dealing with issues with the new database for ZM and the nginx config, I am up and running on version 1.36.5.
The plan was to create new installation and transplant by hand the cameras' settings and zones before tweaking. The plan has failed me, I'm guessing the new version of ZM requires me to start from scratch. What happened with the old motion settings was that no events were recorded.
This is what brings me here. A good reminder of how hard it can be for me to get motion setup.
I have started as usual with the wiki https://wiki.zoneminder.com/index.php/U ... or_Dummies and a couple of notable forum posts like http://forums.zoneminder.com/viewtopic.php?f=32&t=23024 and it's referenced viewtopic.php?f=11&t=22239&p=84476#p84476.
I have failed over the last few days to get my first step: getting low values enough to capture anything on Alarmed Pixels, and the same result with any of the presets. Cameras are in Modect. They are outdoor and their default Reference Image Blend 12.5% outdoor, Alarm Reference Image Blend %ge 6.25%, Analysis is enabled.
I have two outdoor cameras, the streaming and live view works perfectly. They overlook two different areas so I'm clear the settings will need to differ.
I seek your assistance to figure one out so I can use the method for the second.
This is my front camera. I have only one zone enabled that I want to figure out the motion for. Currently no events are recorded on Default or Best, high sensitivity. What do you recommend I set it to to begin with? The camera is streaming at 6fps from source at 2560X1920 pixels & 24 bit colour.
Thanks in advance.
