New mobile app Surveillance Pro for IPhone

Post by monex » Tue Oct 17, 2017 6:42 pm

Hi,

besides zmNinja I've recently found a new app for IPhone devices which also supports ZoneMinder. You can find a short feature video here. The free basic version seems to be adequate for a single home ZoneMinder installation. Of course the features can be extended if you purchase a subscription. The full list of features is available at the itunes web page.

I think this might be an interesting alternative to zmNinja, at least for IPhone users. Please let me know what you think.

Greetings,
Dirk

Are you the author? I’d love to get it to work. So far I’ve not managed to get it to login to my ZM system

No i'm not the author :)

Are you using the latest ZoneMinder version? As far as I know there is a recent version required.

If the instructions from the video did not work, maybe you can try to contact the developer through facebock :)

Okay. Thanks for the post.
If at all you decide to use the app and would like to, please feel free to point the author to this mobile forum - he/she can start a thread here introducing the app and possibly support folks who are interested.

(I am not that interested to reach out to the dev as I don't really have an immediate use for it, but others may)

Hi,

I'm the author of Surveillance Pro and I just registered here to support people interested in and/or using the app.

Dirk, thanks for mentioning the App. Hope it works good for you.

Asker, if you don't mind, I'd be interested in learning why it doesn't recognize your Zoneminder instance
I tried hard to make it autodetect correctly in all kinds of setups.

I reckon you have a 1.30.x and have the API enabled. How does the path to your index.php look like?
Is there a non-standard port involved or did you mount the API on another port and/or prefix compared
to the index.php?
Cheers,

:M:

No problem, and welcome to the forum.
Yes, I have 1.31.1 with APIs enabled and working (I am the author of zmNinja and it uses APIs too, so I'm sure its in order).
My url is of the format "https://server:port/zm" where port is non standard (not 80)

No custom tweaks.

Strange, I just remapped my Zoneminder instance to another port and it did work here. Surveillance Pro won't automagically scan all possible ports though, so I had to enter "http://io.local:666" here to make it find the instance.
Cheers,
