Portland Linux/Unix Group: Setting up inexpensive home security cameras with ZoneMinder to secure your home or business
Oregon Latvian Community Center

Portland Linux/Unix Group General Meeting Announcement

Who: Ted Mittelstaedt
What: Setting up inexpensive home security cameras with ZoneMinder to secure your home or business
Where: 5500 SW Dosch Rd, Portland
When: Thursday, February 2nd, 2023 at 7pm
Why: The pursuit of technology freedom

Today there are a number of inexpensive home security cameras on the market that can be used to decrease the chance that your home or property will be tampered with. There's been a rash of catalytic converter and gasoline thefts in the Portland area in recent years, these require expensive replacements and repair of vehicle gas tanks that have been drilled into. Many homes in Portland do not have garages and residents use street parking. With the increasing use of electric vehicles and portable charging cables, the potential for theft and mischief exists as well. While a camera system may not prevent a theft, a good system can get a clear picture of the perpetrators and allow police to make an arrest. These systems also serve as a visual deterrent. This presentation will cover several camera systems and different concerns for mounting, cabling, and camera selection as well as recording camera data using ZoneMinder running on Linux and considerations for setting up this system.

Rules and Requests:

Please bring and properly fit a mask unless actively presenting

PLUG is open to everyone and does not tolerate abusive behavior on its mailing lists or at its meetings

Do not leave valuables in your car
