How to get zmNinja setup with ZM

Post by BoldAdventure » Sun Dec 04, 2016 11:16 pm

So I downloaded the app, but I'm a bit confused on how to setup my ZM so I can access it remotely with the app. Documentation seems to be totally lacking when I search both wiki's for "remote access".

I setup ZM 1.3 desktop on Ubuntu. Do need to be running it as a server instead? Is their a wiki entry someone could point me too or faq?

What documentation do you find lacking?
https://github.com/pliablepixels/zmNinja/wiki

1) Make sure APIs work - follow the steps to check
2) Make sure ZM is accessible outside of your firewall if you want to use the app outside your LAN

That's all there is to it

Ugh. Yea just had a doah, I'm brain dead moment.

Looks like all I need to do then is get ZM outside my firewalled lan. API's are working. So off to setup a DDNS for myself. :D

zmNinja uses ZoneMinder APIs. You need to upgrade your ZM to an API version. 1.29 is the first stable version with API support, released on Jan 1 2016.
