Security program

Hi everyone,

I was just wondering how I would go about making a program that would sent an email through SMTP when a webcam detects motion. I already have the program that takes pictures when motion is detected through a webcam ( Move action 2.0 ).

Any suggestions would be great. Code would be awesome.

Thank you.

i already use such a program. two you want to look into are mobiola webcam 3 and mobiscope. will use any existing ip or webcam and send you an email or sms when motion is detected, let you login from your phone and watch, let you look at all past recordings, you name it. its probably one of the best apps i own.

I think that program has the option to send jpgs to an email, so you can have it take a snapshot and send it to you upon movement probably. Look in the moveaction.conf file for settings.

This page has the program plus source code(or so it says).


3. Running an external application

The program can be configured to launch any other application when movement is detected.

Shouldn't be too hard to set up some sort of trigger to send an email.
