I'm an end user, wanting to setup cameras at my home. I think I'll go with HikVision cameras and bought one 4MP Turret camera to start tinkering. I'm at IT guru with a bunch of server hardware at home.
I want to setup my own VMS in a Virtual environment, but don't know which software to use. I'd prefer open source and Linux as the OS, but don't mind paying a bit for something decent.
I'm seeing there's a tonne of software out there to choose from and I don't want to spend tonnes of time researching.
I started with Zoneminder and kind of figured it out but the video quality is abismal. I can't believe how bad it is. Choppy, blotchy, lines thru it.
Started tinkering with HikVision iVMS-4200 but it seems to be only a client. I installed the 4200 Storage Server but the client doesn't see the Storage Server so can't do anything with it.
I thought I'd find some good stuff here at IPVM for this subject but haven't found it yet.
