Help make ZoneMinder better!

Donate to get your most wanted features implemented and bugs fixed sooner! All money donated to ZoneMinder will be used to fund bounties.


Hi, I'm Kyle, one of the maintainers of ZoneMinder. We work on ZoneMinder as often as we can, however any time spent on ZoneMinder is time that we are not doing paid work for someone else, and sometimes that's a lot of time! This includes fixing bugs, developing new features, and providing support.

Over the past couple months, the ZoneMinder team has been doing a ton of work (over 400 commits and over 10,000 lines of code) at bring ZoneMinder out of its stasis - mostly bug fixes, but also performance improvements and features. We still have a lot to do, and that is why I'm here.

In an effort to accelerate development, we're holding a fundraiser to help close top issues within ZoneMinder. When the fundraiser ends, we will use all funds raised to create bounties on the issues listed below, as well as any others that need a little extra oomph.
