What is zmNinja?

zmNinja is an awesome home security app that works along with ZoneMinder. zmNinja is built using the awesome oZone Mobile software stack that can be customized for different NVR systems. Various studies have shown its approximately 73% better than warm butter on toast. zmNinja is not backed by a big corporation. It's just one dude, doing things at 2AM in the morning and then at 10PM at night. That's probably why it rocks

Designed with love

zmNinja has a beautifully fluid UI, designed with love. It's a big improvement over using the ZoneMinder console on your phone. Try it and I hope you'll agree

Awesome features

zmNinja has awesome features like a fluid montage, event montage and quick scrub just to name a few. Best of all, I'm dog-fooding my app every day and night so I keep adding cool stuff.


zmNinja works on Android as well as iOS. Well, don't just stop there. It also works on Linux, Windows and Mac desktops. And by 'works' I mean 'works gorgeously'.


zmNinja is a mobile first app. It uses the powerful ionic framework as a base and offers native like performance. Folks who have been trying to use ZoneMinder on their mobile phones without my app have had manic bouts of ecstacy after discover zmNinja
