To get started, you'll need to download ZoneMinder for your operating system of choice. Packages make it super easy to install, and we offer the source code for those that want full control.
Isaac Connor is maintaining a PPA. The packages included in the default Ubuntu repos are out of date, so please don't install ZoneMinder using Ubuntu's repos.
If you are a RHEL, Fedora, CentOS or SL user, Andrew Bauer is maintaining zmrepo.
ZoneMinder is available just by typing
emerge zoneminder. Thanks to the Gentoo web-apps team for making this available.
If you can't use a package, or maybe you just prefer to build everything on your own, ZoneMinder uses the
cmake system to build from source. See instructions here.
zmNinja is available for Android, iOS and a host of desktop platforms. zmNinja is a companion application developed by @pliablepixels.
