The packages don’t brilliantly work out of the box. You need to Google a bit for it to work correctly.

Lately ZoneMinder has been experiencing a lot of issues that caused people's installs to break or be broken on start, and that probably has a few people on edge.

While functionally ZoneMinder seems very capable, the web UI isn't exactly fun to use or nice to look at. I had a search around, and I can't seem to find any themes other than the one it comes with. The flat style isn't too bad, but I was hoping for something a bit more modern.

Wow! I'm blown away at the features ZoneMinder has! All of this open-source and free! The setup instructions were easy to follow (basically just copy and paste) and ZoneMinder even detected my cameras, and auto-configured the whole thing! Great job to the team who built and maintain this amazing piece of software. My only real gripe (and it's very minor) is that the layout and interface are heinously ugly! And it seems to be a tad slow, but I do have ZoneMinder running on a very slow laptop (just wanted to test it all out before committing to building my own NVR PC).

I've got a ZoneMinder system running, which has worked really well for about a year now. Recently, the web interface has become really c****y. If I access the web interface, via internal or external network. it will sometimes take a while to respond, or it wont respond at all. I've currently got eight cameras going, at 6FPS. My load varies from 5-7 on an 8-core system.
