Axis cameras.jpg

ZoneMinder will work well with almost any Axis camera, including the 205, 206, 207, 209, 210, 211 and M10 ranges. It will also work with the 213 and 2130 cameras and support their PTZ functions through the web interface. For cameras that don't work see Axis#Issues.

How to Offload the Motion to cameras AxisMotionDetection

Axis publishes their full, open API named VAPIX; documentation may be found at Axis Developer Pages. Note in particular the HTTP API which defines the remote host path arguments which may be used by Zoneminder.

This is set up to have the camera send an event to zoneminder.

AXIS 213PTZ

The axis 213PTZ works perfectly. Use the folowing settings:

SOURCE
Remote Protocol: RTSP
Remote Method: RTP/RTSP
Remote Host Name: <USER>:<PASS>@<CAM IP/HOSTNAME>
Remote Host Port: 554
Remote Host Path: /mpeg4/media.amp
CONTROL
Controllable: Yes
Control Type: Axis API v2
Control Address: <USER>:<PASS>@<CAM IP/HOSTNAME>

The resolution must match the one especified in the camera settings. Resolutions up to CIF will work without any problems but 2CIF and 4CIF will need the shared memory tweak (lean more at the FAQ)

The AxisMotionDetection trick works quite well with this camera.

The Max FPS option of zoneminder introduces very big latency, so I use the option of the camera for limiting the FPS.

This was tested with zoneminder 1.24.2 running on Gentoo stable

AXIS M1054

Working just fine with my zoneminder setup under Ubuntu 10.04 and 11.04, using MJPEG setup.

My camera setup:

  • Source type: remote
  • Function: modect
  • maximum fps 8.00
  • alarm fps 30.00
  • remote protocol: http
  • remote method: simple
  • remote host name: the DNS name of the camera (or IP adress I suppose)
  • remote host port: 80
  • remote host path: /axis-cgi/mjpg/video.cgi
  • capture width: 1280
  • capture height: 800

I just captured some thiefs with this setup, police caught them and used the pictures as proof. High quality pictures for that price of a camera and very reliable (running 1/2 year now without a single crash or disfunction).

AXIS M1114

works with following entrys

  • Source type: remote
  • Function: [what_you_want]
  • maximum fps 0 # don't put any value here
  • alarm fps 0 # don't put any value here
  • remote protocol: http
  • remote method: simple
  • remote host name: user:password@IP-Address or user:password@DNS_Name
  • remote host port: 80
  • remote host path: /mjpg/video.mjpg?resolution=480x360
  • capture width: 480 #depends on your "remote host path" setting, must to be the same!
  • capture height: 360 #depends on your "remote host path" setting, must to be the same!

Using remote host path and arguments from the Axis VAPIX HTTP API. Includes limiting the frame rate (fps=x)

  • Remote Host Port: 80
  • Remote Host Path:
   Overview - /mjpg/video.mjpg or /mjpg/1/video.mjpg
   Panorama - /mjpg/video.mjpg?camera=2 or /mjpg/2/video.mjpg
   Double Panorama - /mjpg/video.mjpg?camera=3 or /mjpg/3/video.mjpg

   Feed 3 - /mjpg/video.mjpg?camera=7 or /mjpg/7/video.mjpg
   Feed 4 - /mjpg/video.mjpg?camera=8 or /mjpg/8/video.mjpg

To make the PTZ work on feeds 1-4

  • Control Type: Axis API V2
  • Control Device: &camera=5 (6,7 or 8 depending on Feed 1,2,3 or 4)
  • Control Address: user:pass@ipaddress:80
  • Edit AxisV2.pm and change the following in the sendCmd subroutine. Rebooting seems to be the only way to make ZM reload the modified module.
CODE
my $req = HTTP::Request->new( GET=>"http://".$self->{Monitor}->{ControlAddress}."$cmd" );

to this

CODE
my $req = HTTP::Request->new( GET=>"http://".$self->{Monitor}->{ControlAddress}."$cmd".$self->{Monitor}->{ControlDevice} );

Other Hardware

AXIS M7014

-4 channel video encoder with receives signal from a Closed-Circuit-style camera via a BNC connector for each channel.

Works very well with zoneminder using the following settings:

  • Remote Protocol: HTTP
  • Remote Method: Simple
  • Remote Host Name: <user>:<password>@<hostname or IP>
  • Remote Host Port: 80
  • Remote Host Path: /axis-cgi/jpg/image.cgi?camera=X where X is 1,2,3 or 4 - for each channel
  • Remote Image Colours: <24 bit color|32 bit color>
  • Capture Width (pixels): 704
  • Capture Height (pixels): 480

Note: An axis tech suggested using: rtsp://<ip>/axis-media/media.amp?camera=X but I didn't try it. This is a really nice device for ZoneMinder - lets you use legacy cams easily. Highly recommended.

AXIS 240Q

4 Channel video encoder. Works well. Somewhat awkward to place on a shelf as ethernet is on one side and coaxial is on opposite side. Requires a funny coaxial plug size (as all axis equipment seems to). Best buy a set of adaptors such as these: to use with your normal 5.5 2.1mm barrel plug. Search multi type 23 or 28 dc power adapter.

Universal 28pcx Multi type Male Jack for DC Plugs

Works with these settings (taken from the user manual for this device which explicitly details paths):

Protocol: HTTP
Method: Simple
Hostname: user:pass@<ipaddress>
Port: 80
Path: /mjpg/1/video.mjpg?user=<user>&pwd=<pass>
Width: 704
Height: 480

Issues

It does not work with the Companion line of cameras which are feature-neutered and require using the Companion DVR and App only[1].

Early 207's have hardware issues, see this thread in the forum for details.

The 2100 has been discontinued by Axis and no longer supported, possibly due to hardware problems. It's noted in the forums that the camera sends the pictures it captures somewhat diced up.
