Full Description

docker-zoneminder

Docker container for zoneminder v1.31.44

"ZoneMinder the top Linux video camera security and surveillance solution. ZoneMinder is intended for use in single or multi-camera video security applications, including commercial or home CCTV, theft prevention and child, family member or home monitoring and other domestic care scenarios such as nanny cam installations. It supports capture, analysis, recording, and monitoring of video data coming from one or more video or network cameras attached to a Linux system. ZoneMinder also support web and semi-automatic control of Pan/Tilt/Zoom cameras using a variety of protocols. It is suitable for use as a DIY home video security system and for commercial or professional video security and surveillance. It can also be integrated into a home automation system via X.10 or other protocols. If you're looking for a low cost CCTV system or a more flexible alternative to cheap DVR systems then why not give ZoneMinder a try?"

Install dependencies

To install docker in Ubuntu 16.04 use the commands:

sudo apt-get update
sudo wget -qO- <https://get.docker.com/> | sh

To install docker in other operating systems check docker online documentation

Usage

To run with MySQL in a separate container use the command below:

docker network create net
docker run -d -e TZ=America/New_York -e MYSQL_USER=zmuser -e MYSQL_PASSWORD=zmpass -e MYSQL_DATABASE=zm -e MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD=mysqlpsswd -e MYSQL_ROOT_HOST=% --net net --name db mysql/mysql-server:5.7
echo "wait until MySQL startup..."
docker run -d --shm-size=4096m -e TZ=America/New_York -e ZM_DB_HOST=db --net net --name zm -p 80:80 quantumobject/docker-zoneminder

Set the timezone per environment variable

-e TZ=Europe/London

or in yml:

environment:

 - TZ=Europe/London

Default value is America/New_York .

Accessing the Zoneminder applications

After that check with your browser at addresses plus the port assigned by docker:

Them log in with login/password : admin/admin , Please change password right away and check on-line documentation to configure zoneminder.

note: ffmpeg was added and path for it is /usr/bin/ffmpeg if needed for configuration at options .

and if you change System=> "Authenticate user logins to ZoneMinder" you at this moment need to change "Method used to relay authentication information " to "None" if this not done you will be unable to see live view. This only recommended if you are using https to protect password(This relate to a misconfiguration or problem with this container still trying to find a better solutions).

if timeline fail please check TimeZone at php.ini is the correct one for your server( default is America/New York).

To access the container from the server that the container is running :

$ docker exec -it container_id /bin/bash

Docker Swarm deployment

This projects is implemented to be deployed as docker-compose or swarm stack. Here an example of the docker swarm stack

above docker-compose.yml stack example asume a directory structure at $PWD as is

$PWD/mysql      # (MySQL Data, drwxr-xr-x 6   27 27)
$PWD/zoneminder # (directory for images, drwxrwx--- 5 root 33)
$PWD/backup     # (directory for backups, drwxr-xr-x 2 root root)
$PWD/conf       # (configuration files, drwxrwxr-x  7 1000 1000, only conf/mysql/my.cnf is required)
cat conf/mysql/my.cnf
# For advice on how to change settings please see

[mysqld]
#
# Remove leading # and set to the amount of RAM for the most important data
# cache in MySQL. Start at 70% of total RAM for dedicated server, else 10%.
# innodb_buffer_pool_size = 128M
#
# Remove leading # to turn on a very important data integrity option: logging
# changes to the binary log between backups.
# log_bin
#
# Remove leading # to set options mainly useful for reporting servers.

to deploy above stack first initialize your swarm at least with one node for testing

docker swarm init
docker stack deploy -c docker-compose.yml zm
echo "wait for a few seconds to MySQL start for the first time"
docker service scale zm_web=1
echo "go to ZoneMinder console Options-Servers and declare node.0->stream0.localhost and node.1 ... node.3, finally start"
docker service scale zm_stream=3
docker service ls

the docker image used for load balancing is a modified version of dockercloud/haproxy specially targeted for
using {{.Task.Slot}} placeholder in DNS name resolution, see more details at
