ONVIF Notifications and ZoneMinder
ONVIF triggers external events in ZoneMinder
I finally put together everything I had learned about ZoneMinder external event triggering and ONVIF VideoAnalytics.
On reception of an ONVIF event the script generates a ZoneMinder event. Thus the ZoneMinder server does not need to analyze the video streams from several cameras. The cameras themselves watch for any movement. This saves a lot of CPU power and network bandwidth.
We can see the events in the ZoneMinder console.
ZoneMinder ONVIF options
I had to enhance the ZoneMinder monitor options for the script to have the necessary technical details. We do not fill these values manually. The ONVIF probing button gathers this information and fills the options with the correct values.
