Zoneminder configuration for Floureon 1080P

Posted / Публикувана 2017-11-21 in category / в категория: Uncategorized

Recently I bought Floureon 1080P 18x. I was planning to use it to test an idea about car license plate recognition. The camera came with software for Windows which was no go for me because I was planning to use Ubuntu linux. After spending some time looking for a linux software to control the cam I found Zoneminder. It is free and open source but it lacked support for Floureon cameras. Long story short, I had to make some additions to Zoneminder in order to make it work.

Here is a simple guide:

1. Zoneminder additions

If you are using Zomeminder version equal or greater than 1.31.2 then you have my additions built-in an you may skip to point 2. Camera configuration. If you are using earlier versions you will have to:

  1. Create a file Floureon.pm in /usr/share/perl5/ZoneMinder/Control/ and paste the content from here. Make sure file permissions are the same as of the other files in this directory.
  2. Execute this line in order to insert new data in the zm's DB: insert into Controls values (28,'Floureon 1080P','Ffmpeg','Floureon',0,0,0,1,0,0,0,1,1,18,1,1,0,0,0,1,1,0,0,1,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,1,1,0,0,1,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,1,20,0,1,1,1,0,0,0,1,1,0,0,0,0,1,1,8,0,0,1,0,0,0,0,1,1,8,0,0,0,0);

 

2. Camera configuration

When adding new monitor for your Floureon camera here is the configuration for it:

General tab:

Source tab:

Remote host name should be like: username:password@ip

Important: 'Remote host path' must be /1/h264major. I had really hard finding the correct path.

 

Control tab:

Control address should be like: username:password@ip
