       This binary is a handy command line interface to several useful functions. It's not really
       meant to be used by anyone except the web page (there's only limited 'help' in it so far)
       but can be if necessary, especially for debugging video problems.


       General options:
         -v, --verbose                           - Produce more verbose output
         -l, --list                              - List the current status of active (or all with
       -v) monitors

         -v, --version                            - Print the installed version of ZoneMinder

       Options for use with devices:
         -d, --device [device_path]              - Get the current video device settings for
       [device_path] or all devices

       the query, use 1 or 2
         -q, --query                             - Query the current settings for the device

       Options for use with monitors:
         -m, --monitor <monitor_id>              - Specify which monitor to address, default 1 if
         -q, --query                             - Query the current settings for the monitor

       = prealarm, 2 = alarm,
                                                   3 = alert, 4 = tape
