ZoneMinder: Linux home security par excellence

Friday, 15 October 2004, 11:10 AM EST

ZoneMinder was written by and is maintained by Philip Coombes, who explains on his site that he wrote ZoneMinder after having been burgled. His garage had been broken into and all his power tools were stolen. A recent similar incident sent me looking for a Linux security camera system -- my friend Susan's home was broken into while she was away on vacation. I was called when her home security alarm went off about 11 a.m. and the security company couldn't reach her. By the time the police and I got there, the bad guys were gone. The front door had been kicked in and the TV and DVD/VCR player removed. I guess the sound of the alarm going off kept them from spending more time in the house. It seems strange that a home protected by an alarm system is so vulnerable, but the sign in the yard didn't deter them.
