ZoneMinder Matrix Feature

Postby tbirkett » Sat Sep 05, 2009 11:53 am


A couple of things that would make ZoneMinder more interesting...

The ability to have a live record monitor so you can switch between cameras and record the resulting footage for example to follow a suspect on camera live.

Integration of an external controller: There are several telemetry controllers available most using RS485 the ability to use such a controller to control the live record screen (change cameras,= and control PTZs would greatly improve the commercial awareness of ZoneMinder.

Serial Data Streams: On the monitor configuration stage perhaps have an option to specify a serial port (/dev/ttys#) and the number of lines of text to display and an option of where to display the text (left right / top bottom) this could maybe use perl Tail or perl serial IO to read # of lines from the specified port. (I have seen one post about this earlier but know definite solution) this would enable integration of anything that outputs a serial text stream (with null modem cable)

Any thoughts??? I'm going to look into some of these things over the next few weeks (while trying to do my OU courses and work) I'll post anything interesting to this post... :idea:
