ZoneMinder Motion Detecting Video Security app

Post by Void Main » Thu Feb 24, 2011 1:18 am

I wrote a motion detecting security app about 10 years ago that would take images from a network cam. I was thinking it would be nice to have a security camera in my garage so I picked up a cheap webcam from Walmart on the way home from work tonight and installed an app called "ZoneMinder":

The motion detection works great and the entire app works great. It has all kinds of cool features and can even alert you via email when it detects motion. Now I have a nice security camera in my garage that alerts and records any time there is motion. :)

I have wanted to do this to catch the bums stealing oops off of my porch.
