zmonvif-events

A JS CLI tool that attempts to bridge the gap between your ONVIF camera's motion detection and Zoneminder.

Why?

In a typical Zoneminder installation the server will do video processing to determine which frames have motion. Unfortunately this task is quite CPU intensive.

Fortunately some ONVIF cameras have built in motion detection features, which notify subscribers when an event occurs.

This tool connects to an ONVIF camera and subscribes to these messages. When the motion state changes, it uses Zoneminder's API to arm the selected monitor
