ZoneMinder is a set of applications which support capture, analysis, recording, and monitoring of video data coming from cameras attached to a GNU/Linux system. Its Web interface lets users view, archive, review, and delete images and movies. The image analysis system is highly configurable: users can retain specific events while eliminating false positives. ZoneMinder defines a set of individual 'zones' of varying sensitivity and functionality for each camera. Certain regions can be eliminated,and certain areas can be defined in such a way that they will alarm if thresholds are exceeded in conjunction with other zones. It is designed to run on kernels which support the Video For Linux (V4L) interface and has been tested with cameras attached to BTTV cards and also USB various cameras. It will work with both colour (24 bit) and black and white cameras and is designed to support as can be attached to a computer without too much degradation of performance.
