@Prabindas001 it is connected via cable so is not valid ?
@Kivanc-IOT what about my issue is there any solution
I'd love to monitor my rpi motioneye cameras with nagios through SNMP, still no on building snmp into the default distro so i don't have to rebuild them all on Raspbian?
Hi, I am new on Github. Newbie question : did someone actually managed to have the same cam provide motion detection with Motion Eye AND stream on the net. I get either fluid integration and stream on lovelace Home Assistant (EspHome integration) or motion detection, but no fluid streaming through Lovelace? I have been struggling on this for several days and would like know if it is even possible? Thanks for your help...
Hey guys I just ran the migrateconf script on my config files and now when I restart motioneye (docker) all of my cams are gone. Nothin in the logs.. Any ides?
Nothing is written to the log specified in motioneye.conf, even when logging level is debug.
NVM. The issue was that I was using an old docker tag so it was an old version of motioneye
Hi, does anyone use RPI4 with MotionEye to do a downstream of an IP Camera? I have a rpi3 with the same setup and the stream was fast but with a rpi4 the stream has a 10/20 s lag. Does anyone have the same problem?
Hi to everyone, I am looking for a solution, how to take a picture with using external hardware button connected to some GPIO pin. Is this please possible?
Probably stupid question, it will be possible, the right question should be, how to do it?

Do not see feature of GPIO input available on Motiioneye but alternatively you can use Nodered platform if you are familiar with. Trigger Push Button over GPIO and use nodered-contrib-camerapi node to take a picture and store in the /home/pi/Pictures directory. However you can use MMAL feature only on one condition, either Motioneye or Nodered application to use camera, cannot use both simultaneously.

Quick question. Is it possible to build a direct link to a captured image? I trigger some scripts and get the image path (/var/lib/motioneye/Camera1/2020-05-28/09-08-25.jpg) but I would like to create a nice clickable link in my mail.
Hey Is there someone here that can help me I am setting up my motioneye camera system I am using a raspberry pi zero w set to fast network camera and I have an hub where this camera is added but I cant seem to let it save to my nfs share... somebody that could help me? I only get custom path in storage options

Hi I'm havin issues and I dk if it is woth opening an issue on the repo so I'll ask here first. Here is the thing: I am usung the latest motioneyeos and when I reboot, I cannot enter via the web UI. Apparently it is not conected to the wifi anymore
Good day. I want to run MotionEye as a hub only with no camera physically attached. Is that possible? I have tried a few times, and the Pi I'm running it on won't boot without a camera attached. Thanks for any help.
Question for group: Running motioneye on a zero which I know from two tests is unable to automatically update; it will hang after auto update attempt reponding to pings but nothing else until power cycled. It will however run after power cycle and I can SSH in. It does not run cleanly though; for example some of the streaming config options are missing, and it can reboot. Any suggestions as to where to look in which log files for clues as to the problem with auto update?
I should add that this unit is not accessible due to Covid lock downs which is why after reading the FAQ have not been able to follow standard procedure of re-flashing SD card. Identical unit in same property was able to update and run OK so I suspect trouble somewhere with the SD card.
@bbanerd Can you tell me how he did it, or do you know if there's something specific to make that work? I'm trying to get it running, but they system doesn't seem to to boot without a camera attached. Is there a separate download I need to look for or something?
Nevermind - I'm an idiot. I was trying to use Pi Zero image for Pi 3
think I've got it now.
I have installed on docker using this command however it is still storying to the var and etc of my local machine docker run --name="motioneye" \ -p 8765:8765 \ --hostname="motioneye" \ -v /etc/localtime:/etc/localtime:ro \ -v /srv/dev-disk-by-label-Data/Data/motioneye/etc/:/etc/motioneye \ -v /srv/dev-disk-by-label-Data/Data/motioneye/lib/:/var/lib/motioneye \ --restart="always" \ --detach=true \ ccrisan/motioneye:master-armhf
Yo guys. I was wondering if there is an API I could use to make an android and ios app for motioneye
I know I can start and stop recording using the web control interface. Is it possible to trigger a still frame shot using it as well?
Călin, I just want to THANK you for all the work you put on this project. Is an amazing piece of software! Keep it up.
I figured out how to trigger stills from the web control API as well. This is a wonderful project and it just keeps getting better...
Hi all, Is there way to pass data when calling a webhook when motion occurs. Ex) pass camera name, date etc?
What are you trying to communicate with? Depending on what the project is, there may be a better option than webhooks...
Essentially I would like to try to get some kind of person detection or facial detection solution running. But am not sure if there are other solutions out there do that with motioneye or not
Are you using any kind of home automation? You gotta paint the big picture if you want suggestions...
I am currently running Home assistant for my home automation software. That runs on machine A it is not super powerful. Machine B will house motion eye and is powerful. The idea would be, when the system is armed and motion (preferably an actual person and not a false positive) is detected that would signal to home assistant to alert the users. I would also want the recorded videos to be uploaded to the cloud (motion eye does this with google drive). From what I've experienced with motioneye it does a rather good job but since the cameras are outdoors, weather, wildlife etc can trip the motion. I am running motion eye in docker and would like the second tier of detection (person/facial detection) be also a docker container. I've tried zoneminder and shinobi and wasn't impressed with the amt of setup for what you get, hence why i am circling back to motioneye.
Ok. Now we're getting somewhere. First, the easiest way to communicate with HA from motionEye is MQTT. If you're using ONVIF cameras, look into ONVIF-motion-events. It's a little routine that runs in docker that monitors the cameras for motion events and takes motion detection off of motionEye. Saves a lot of processor time. Then, for object detection, you have multiple options. There's Frigate that is apparently able to process a live feed. I am using DOODS as I didn't seem to catch as much as I figured I would with Frigate. Haven't played with it again lately Look into another program that runs along side HA called Appdaemon. Allows you to write your automation in python instead of HA's scripting language. Way more powerful.
Thank you @MYeager1967, your suggestions are super helpful! I think I am going to go the frigate route and set it up to where it will monitor the camera feeds, and if it detects a person, it will signal to motion eye to start and stop recording. (using home assistant as the in between). Thank you!!
Hopefully you have better luck with Frigate than I did. I will go back and look at it again one of these days. You'll need to look into the web control interface to do what you want to do. It's really easy though.
Greetings: First time board query. I am using a motionEye version 0.42.1 docker in Unraid. Using four Amcrest Model IP8M-T2499E cameras with motion detection. I have set up cameras with motion detection and have read every setting several times, but I'm missing something. Two things are happening. #1- On "dark" mode, unless the action happens really close to the camera, it doesn't see the action and start recording. #2- Under "Movies" setting, I have Recording Mode set to "Motion Triggered" and Maximum movie length set to "180 seconds". None of my video clips last three minutes. What do you think?
None of your videos are going to last 3 minutes unless the motion event lasts that long. How are you triggering the recording in motionEye? You said you set up motion detection on the cameras. I have several of the exact same cameras and I use the motion detection of the camera itself to start and stop the recording in motionEye. I set my max movie length to zero. Motion events never last that long....
Hello, I need urgent help, I just installed ME on NAS with Openmediavault system, after many hours of configuring I finally recording... Just I downloaded records and I can't play them anywhere even on ME page when I double click it.
They are recorded in HEVC H265 (I play movies with the same codec in VLC), there is an only black screen but the video is playing.
I need to save some space (a lot of cameras), H265 is pretty helpful with that
And why just videos from ME doesn't play
And I also bought cameras with H265 because I needed it
I can't answer that, but when I tried to use H265, I had the same result. Apparently, motionEye doesn't handle H265 well at this time
Thanks for your answer, at least I know it's "normal"...
But... Wait. Is this really problem with ME? When I have set to save directly files from the camera, ME should not touch anything about codecs or anything like that? Movie Passthrough ON
I tested it and H264 really works, but it takes 1.7GB for 1hour of record!!! God... H265 only ~850MB...
Well, record in h265 then, even if you can't use it for anything. It makes no difference how much space you save if the file isn't viewable...
Does motioneye have an official feature request method?
