ZoneMinder is a web/net cam web-server-stack web application to create streams of video for security feeds. ZoneMinder supports motion logging, zooming, and other DVR functions.

Installation

# emerge www-misc/zoneminder

Configuration

ZoneMinder's configuration files are located @ /etc/conf.d/zoneminder & /etc/zm.conf.

Apache

/etc/apache2/vhosts.d/10_zoneminder.conf - Set apache configs.
ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/zms "/usr/libexec/zoneminder/cgi-bin/zms"

/etc/zm.conf - Set db password in ZoneMinder configs.

ZM_DB_PASS=changeme

Database

MySQL

ZoneMinder requires a database to run. Package:MySQL and its equivalent alternatives will suffice.

# mysql -u root -p
mysql> create database zm;
mysql> \q

Deploy ZoneMinder's database settings:

# mysql -p zm < /usr/share/zoneminder/db/zm_create.sql

Create a database user for ZoneMinder to use. Make sure the /etc/zm.conf zm db user & zm db pass settings match the users, and passwords here.

# mysql -u root -p
mysql> use zm;
mysql> grant select,insert,update,delete on zm.* to 'zmuser'@localhost identified by 'changeme';
mysql> flush privileges;
mysql> \q

Init

To start the ZoneMinder service:

# rc-update add zoneminder
# rc

Web Interface

The ZoneMinder web interface can be viewed @ http://127.0.0.1/zm/index.php

If you're having problems serving this webapp via php-fpm:

# ln -s /usr/share/zoneminder/www/ /var/www/localhost/htdocs/zoneminder
and instead view the cms @ http://127.0.0.1/zoneminder/index.php

Mobile Web Interface

To the top right of ZoneMinder's web interface click options. Select the display tab. Change ZM_SKIN to mobile, and hit save.

To revert the changes visit your install and instead of index.php use index.php?skin=classic

ZoneMinder is skinable, funtoo suggests using a bootstrap skin instead.

Bandwidth

In the web interface, to the center click "low" and a dialog window will pop up allowing you to change it to medium, or high.

Console

The web interface can control the zoneminder process. To the right of "console" click either running, or stopped. Dialog windows will pop up allowing you to stop, or run ZoneMinder.

Adding Cameras

To the bottom left select "add new monitor." In the window that pops up, to the top right are probe & presets. Any further configuration settings that are required are probably listed in the hardware compatibility list.
