It's a pain to setup, but it beats any expensive subscription

What do you like best about the product?
Once you've added a camera., its easy to set boundaries etc to narrow down what it uses in the field of view to trigger alerts/recordings.
What do you dislike about the product?
Camera's sometime disappear from the list of camera's, video footage freezes which makes me reboot zoneminder in order to pick up the live video feed again (the most annoying thing) and it's quite hard to add a camera in general. The settings you get when adding a camera are not self explanatory and they use abbreviations for their own items (so you cant even google the abbreviations)
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
We have several chinese imported camera's. they're all from different brands with different shipped software. With Zoneminder we can unify all these camera's in one single system, and also make it record when some movement treshold is passed.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
If you're relying on stable security software, don't pick Zoneminder.
If you just want to monitor your camera's without them recording (all the time) than this is a safe pick.


Amazing DIY Security

Works right out of the box, just click, deploy and point it to your server and you are up and running.
I was able to add my cameras, and immediately started getting events. I wish the email setup was a little better configured. You have to install SSMTP , upgrade the version etc. Only reason for not 5 stars.
It would be nice to some how trigger IOS notifications through this app as well.


Works as well as a local server

I've been using ZoneMinder for 10 years. When I decided to try ZM on Amazon my expectation were not high. However, I have been impressed with how well it works. Give it a try, you'll be amazed.
