For details on how to use the ZoneMinder interface and supported cameras please visit the ZoneMinder product page.

Note: The number of active cameras is limited by the amount of memory (RAM) of the NAS. The module will allow half of the total memory of the NAS to be used as shared memory. The amount of shared memory (in bytes) required per camera can be calculated as follows:

width x height x depth x frames / 8

with frames being the number of frames to buffer (default: 40). For 640x480 at a depth of 24bit with 40 frames to buffer this would be about 30 MB.
