[Unit] Description=Open Home Automation Bus

[Service] Type=forking GuessMainPID=yes ExecStart=/Space/Apps/openhab/start.sh ExecStop=/usr/bin/kill -SIGINT $MAINPID ExecStopPost= User=openhab Group=daemon WorkingDirectory=/Space/Apps/openhab

Insert the following lines just before the "my @daemons = (" line

$ENV{LD_PRELOAD} = '/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libv4l/v4l1compat.so';
$ENV{LD_PRELOAD} = '/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libv4l/v4l2convert.so';

Time stamps

For AM/PM style time modify the time stamp with the following format: %N - %Y-%m-%d %I:%M:%S%P %Z

External Triggers

In order to use external triggers with ZM you must set:

OPT_TRIGGERS Interface external event triggers via socket or device files (?)
