Question on status of Amazon S3 support

Post by sypheXsquare » Wed Dec 20, 2017 4:23 am

I apologize in advance if this is the wrong place to post, but I wanted to inquire about the current status of ZoneMinder and Amazon S3. I guess this would be a simple non-issue if you can dump a data directory to the cloud, but would probably be useful to someone technically inclined.

I use it via s3fs. The lag is a problem.

So what I do is record locally and use a background filter to copy events to s3 storage.

Funny you mention this - I found a node.js based solution which was more work to get it working than to build one.. so I just built this:

https://github.com/CampsiteHelper/ZoneMinderS3

It uploads alarm image frames to s3 in short order. Allows me to do local full recording (MORECORD) and send relevant frame up for safekeeping.

This looks pretty good,

Is it easy to get working?

Does it allow upload of all footage or just alarmed images? is there a way to choose a different email address for different cameras?

Many thanks

Zmjm15,

Its pretty easy to get working assuming you know how to setup an S3 bucket and permissions on AWS.

It only uploads alarm'd images.

I strongly doubt most most folks have upstream bandwidth to support uploading all images so I didn't build that in.

Thanks Kevrm,

I want to set up a Raspberry pi with the camera module on it to put into my car, and then be able to upload alarmed images via 3g/4g, do you know if that is do-able?
