ZoneMinder


The ZoneMinder integration sets up the integration with your ZoneMinder instance.

There is currently support for the following device types within Home Assistant:

Configuration

# Example configuration.yaml entry
zoneminder:
  - host: ZM_HOST

Configuration Variables

host

(string)(Required)

Your ZoneMinder server’s host (and optional port), not including the scheme.

path

(string)(Optional)

Path to your ZoneMinder install.

Default value:

/zm/

path_zms

(string)(Optional)

Path to the CGI script for streaming. This should match PATH_ZMS in ZM’s “Paths” settings.

Default value:

/zm/cgi-bin/nph-zms

ssl

(boolean)(Optional)

Set to true if your ZoneMinder installation is using SSL.

Default value:

false

verify_ssl

(boolean)(Optional)

Verify the certification of the endpoint.

Default value:

true

username

Your ZoneMinder username.

password

(string)(Optional)

Your ZoneMinder password. Required if OPT_USE_AUTH is enabled in ZM.

Full configuration

# Example configuration.yaml entry
zoneminder:
  - host: ZM_HOST
    path: ZM_PATH
    path_zms: ZM_PATH_ZMS
    ssl: true
    verify_ssl: true
    username: YOUR_USERNAME
    password: YOUR_PASSWORD

Service

Once loaded, the zoneminder platform will expose a service (set_run_state) that can be used to change the current run state of ZoneMinder.

Service data attribute Optional Description
id no Host of the ZoneMinder instance.
name no Name of the new run state to set.

For example, if your ZoneMinder instance was configured with a run state called “Home”, you could write an automation that changes ZoneMinder to the “Home” run state by including the following action:

action:
 service: zoneminder.set_run_state
 data:
   id: ZM_HOST
   name: Home

Binary Sensor

The zoneminder binary sensor platform lets you monitor the availability of your ZoneMinder install.

Each binary_sensor created will be named after the hostname used when configuring the ZoneMinder component.

Camera

The zoneminder camera platform lets you monitor the current stream of your ZoneMinder cameras.

Configuration

To set it up, add the following information to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
camera:
  - platform: zoneminder

Sensor

The zoneminder sensor platform lets you monitor the current state of your ZoneMinder install including the number of events, the current state of the cameras and ZoneMinder’s current run state.

To set it up, add the following information to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
sensor:
  - platform: zoneminder
    include_archived: false

Configuration Variables

include_archived

(boolean)(Optional)

Whether to include archived ZoneMinder events in event counts.

Default value:

false

monitored_conditions

week

Events in the last week.

day

Switch

The zoneminder switch platform allows you to toggle the current function of all cameras attached to your ZoneMinder instance.

You must have the ZoneMinder component configured to use this and if ZoneMinder authentication is enabled the account specified in the integration configuration must have “Edit” permission for “System”.

To enable this switch, add the following lines to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
switch:
  - platform: zoneminder
    command_on: Modect
    command_off: Monitor

Configuration Variables

command_on

(string)(Required)

The function you want the camera to run when turned on.

command_off

(string)(Required)

The function you want the camera to run when turned off.

The default functions installed by ZoneMinder are: None, Monitor, Modect, Record, Mocord, Nodect.
