Got this set up in 20 minutes with four RSTP IP cameras. By far the easiest surveillance system I have ever configured.

Zoneminder took a whole evening, Shinobi took two, Kereberos took two.

Zoneminder was stable, but has lots of false positives.

Shinobi and Kerberos required massive shopping lists of dependencies, and were very difficult for someone unfamiliar with NodeJS and Docker (respectively) to set up.

Shinobi and Kerberos were also very unstable. Before installing MotionEye, I had left Shinobi running for a week. I came back to find it has spawned hundreds of random FFMPEG processes, pushing my load average over 200 and taking out all other services on the system.
