Still Picture in a toilet

Post by Curious_ben » Thu Feb 04, 2016 10:03 am

Dear all,

I would like to explore if it is possible to configure Zoneminder to take picture when there is no human detected.

The scenerio is that we would like to monitor the cleaning services in a toilet. So, we just need still picture and when there is no human inside a toilet.

Thank you in advance

That sounds like a law suit waiting to happen. One glitch in the "human detection", a picture snapped of someone using the facilities gets "accidentally shared" and the company goes a few million in the hole from the lawsuit.

Come on...do you think that someone is going to think about installing cameras in a toilet to record ladies without clothing? He's interested in watching how the throne shines after the cleaning services have left the area!

Maybe I jumped to a hasty assumption and he's just trying to prove that the squirrels are really the culprit in the stolen toilet paper problem and not Jane from accounting.

why not point the camera somewhere else in the bathroom ?

like at the door?


or if you want to see if someone is making a mess, I guess you could try to trigger recording when the door opens/closes ?


stick a sign up saying a photo is taken every time the door opens/closes to cover your ass from getting sued
