Fortress Nerdsville – Part 2

Well the next stage of the CCTV system was to install the Zoneminder and thankfully it was fairly straightforward, following the process on the link below

The only tricky part was getting the video capture card to be recognised properly. I am able to monitor the camera pictures remotely via the web but at the moment something isn’t right as I cannot get any ‘events or alarms’ to trigger.

And to add to the frustration a remote server reboot has failed to restart so will have to wait till I get home this evening.
