Re: [SLUG] security monitor with webcam


I used to use motion when I had a free webcam hooked up to my desktop.

There is a nice guide here for motion:

With some scripts I wrote to FTP the files offsite, and clean up the temp
pictures via cron on both the local and remote storage. Bear in mind that is
not my site, I just contributed.
