only 1 frame captured

Post by Andi79 » Tue Jul 30, 2019 7:26 am


I'm new in zoneminder and i have big problems with configuration. ZM should caputure on Mocord mode, unfortuanbly it fires 1 event per second and captures 1 frame for it. There is a mssage "Not Capturing", but thousands (motion?) events .

I have a IPC120 capera and use the sourctype ffmpeg and path or snapshot.jpg[...]

Is this wrong? Why that many events?

That generally means your motion sensitivity is set too high. Every minor change is trigger an alarm. This article may help you get started.
