motion detection cam with sms alerts


Recommended Posts

hey all..

so I'm a noob.. bear with me. 

remember way back to the earlier episodes of hak.5?  there was a webcam setup to a webserver that updated a pic.  well I have something I want to get setup that's similar to that.  the only difference, is I want it to motion detect and send an sms message to my cell phone while I'm away.

I have a pixera picolo camera (like the one in that episode), hooked to a capture card into my winxp box. 

I've looked on google, this forum, and even on some opensource pages, but I can't seem to find a program that will do this.  I'd prefer an opensource program for it.

I tried a program I found on sourceforge called Senriska, and its supposed to support SMS alerts, but I can't get it to work.

so my question(s) are:

what program should I use for this? (or atleast try)

how do I find out my cell phone sms settings?  is it something I'd need from the provider?

(here's a wiki for my cell: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samsung_SGH-D807 )

seems I was a little off in my original idea...

I realize that sms can't do pictures, but only alerts.. so I guess I'll have to use MMS?  is this possible?  I guess it would be pretty expensive to send picture messages to my phone.. I guess I'll have to re-evaluate my idea here..

plus having to pay for a sms gateway for this seems a bit much..

I'll have to do some brainstorming more before I can get this off the ground..
