ZoneMinder 1.32.3 - Can't connect from OH

Has anyone managed to successfully connect to version 1.32.3 of ZoneMinder using the binding shipped out with version 2.5 of OH?

The included binding will not work with 1.32. You will need to downgrade to 1.29 and use the included binding or upgrade to 1.34 and use this binding:


I will assume you are running Zoneminder on a raspberry pi. You can upgrade to 1.34 with these steps:
Add the repo

sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list

Add the following line to the end of the file

deb https://zmrepo.zoneminder.com/debian/release-1.34/buster/

CTRL+o then [Enter] to save

CTRL+x to exit

sudo apt update

Update the database with

sudo zmupdate.pl

Restart the Zoneminder box and you’re there. You will then need to remove your existing Zoneminder binding and add the new one manually.

Tried to follow your steps to upgrade but ended up with this error message:

I also tried

sudo apt-get update --allow-unauthenticated

but without success. Any idea how I can fix this error?

Try this:

Install the following and retrieve the key from the repro

sudo apt install apt-transport-https gnupg

wget -O - https://zmrepo.zoneminder.com/debian/archive-keyring.gpg | sudo apt-key add -

Important - Make sure the above “wget” process completes without error! If it does not complete you will not get the most recent Zoneminder version this procedure is written for.

I tried and retrieved the key from the repro but ended up with following result:

pi@zoneminder:~ $ sudo apt update

So, no error but no upgrade either.

I got the instructions from:
https://wiki.zoneminder.com/Debian_10_Buster_with_Zoneminder_1.34.x_from_ZM_Repo
I think the next step would be to go to the
Install Zoneminder
line and follow from there.
