Zoneminder Camera Setup Examples

Three Examples of Camera Configuration for Zoneminder

My first camera I bought for surveillance was an Edimax IC-520 from memory, a network camera with a resolution of 640x480px, it also has the great fisheye lens feature, I now believe a fisheye lens is an absolute must after using non fisheye lens cameras for Zoneminder. The Edimax sure is a reliable camera and definitely good enough for a surveillance camera.
