open-source forensic surveillance analysis software of pre-recorded video

Open Source 1

McBooCZech (1409351) writes "I am trying to set up a surveillance system.
It is NOT intended to build a real-time on-line surveillance system to watch a wall of monitors on a 24/7 basis.

The main scope is to record video (24/7) from the fixed cameras around our facility and when needed, get back to pre-recorded video and check it for particular event(s).

Of course it is possible to use a human power and go fast forward through video using a DVR-type FF function for short video sequences. Unfortunately for long sequences (one week) it is not acceptable solution.

I was googling the whole weekend for the open source software for analysis of pre-recorded video in order to retrieve events and data from
recorded video but no luck.

Because of that I would like ask you, slashdotters. Can you, please, provide some tips or links to the forensic software to analyse/find specific events in pre-recorded video?

Some examples of events: "human entering restricted zone" "movement in the restricted zone" "light in the restricted zone""

IP enabled camera and a Synology Diskstation should solve this for under $500.
