Welcome to the home of Motion, a software motion detector. Motion is a program that monitors the video signal from cameras. It is able to detect if a significant part of the picture has changed; in other words, it can detect motion. See more below. Documentation Download These unofficial versions exists that hopefully will soon be merged into the official project Support Development Motion Patches - contribute your modification and see what others have shared Related Projects (incl video4linux loopback device) Motion at Sourceforge - for file releases. What is Motion? Motion is a program that monitors the video signal from one or more cameras and is able to detect if a significant part of the picture has changed; in other words, it can detect motion.

Surveillance Camera | Geeky Tidbits Last year my house was burglarized. I was away from home when it happened and got an iPhone Prowl notification from my AlarmServer app running on my Pogoplug immediately after my alarm went off. I called my next door neighbor, who was home at the time, and they went over right away but the thieves were already gone. Although my alarm performed as it should have I realized that I needed video surveillance so I could identify the thieves to the police next time. Camera The TRENDnet ProView Wireless Internet Surveillance Camera TV-IP501W (left) is a nice looking camera and mounted discreetly on the overhang of my roof. Motion Although the TRENDnet camera has the ability to upload images to an FTP server, it doesn’t detect motion and drops many, too many, images when configured to do so. netcam_url #192.168.1.7 is the IP address of the camera threshold 3000 #trial and error determined this to be best when camera is at 640x480 resolution Archiving #!

Cross-compilation & Distributed compilation for the Raspberry Pi | Jeremy Nicola Introduction Compiling large programs such as a Linux Kernel, or big libraries like OpenCV, OpenNI directly on your Raspberry Pi will take a lot of time, and sometimes will even fail ( I was not able to reach more than 6% in the compilation process of the PCL, when compiling directly on the Pi ). In this howto I will show you how to: cross compile programs, i.e.: how you can compile a program on your PC so that it will run on your Raspberry Pidistribute the compilation so that when you compile a program from your Raspberry Pi it actually gets cross-compiled on your remote PC(s), in a totally transparent manner I am assuming that just as me, you're manipulating directly in your $HOME directory, both on your Raspberry Pi and your PC, running any Debian-flavored Linux distribution ( Debian, Linux Mint Debian Edition, Ubuntu... ). 1 - Install a toolchain To cross compile you have to set up a toolchain. build it yourselfuse the one provided by the Raspberry Pi Foundation A simple Hello world! . .

Garageio Playstation PS3 Eye Streaming Just managed to get my PS3 Eye camera working with the Pi, so thought I'd share how it's done in Debian. The following steps will get the camera and Pi working together as a simple motion detection device with a web stream that you can view on your local network: 1. Install the 'motion' package ( Code: Select all sudo apt-get install motion 2. sudo apt-get install ffmpeg 3. webcam_localhost off 4. control_localhost off 5. width 640height 640 6. 7. ifconfig This will give the following output: eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx inet addr:192.168.32.47 Bcast:192.168.32.255 Mask:255.255.255.0 inet6 addr: fe80::ba27:ebff:fe40:357a/64 Scope:Link UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1 RX packets:31800 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:27108 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000 RX bytes:20174919 (19.2 MiB) TX bytes:29838750 (28.4 MiB) 8. motion -n 9. 10.

Raspberry Pi HD Surveillance Camera with Motion, Night Settings and a Website Introduction I'm currently working on an updated version of this PiCam sc which will be easier to install and gives you the possibility to receive updates and new features. You can find this project on GitHub: This article will show you the best settings to use for your normal Raspberry Pi camera (not the NoIR) as a HD surveillance camera. Optionally, there is a tutorial on how to use an external storage like a NAS to copy images to. Background There are many good tutorials on how to implement the Raspberry Pi and the camera as a low-cost surveillance camera. As everything is already described by others, I'm more interested in getting the best quality in image sharpness and settings at night when using the normal camera (not the NoIR) camera. Getting Started It's wise to read ahead a couple of lines before you dive in. It's a good idea to start where I did. Raspberry Pi as low-cost HD surveillance camera by Christoph Buenger.

Webcam streaming with Raspberry Pi - My Place On The Pale Blue Dot Details Details Last Updated on Wednesday, 06 March 2013 21:16 Here is a set of instructions for the installation and configuration of a Raspberry Pi to provide streaming video from a webcam. I set this up in preparation for my Nestcam project which hopefully appears on these pages in the following months. To capture video and snapshots from a webcam and stream them through a webserver I use Motion : "Motion is a program that monitors the video signal from cameras. [video4linux2 @ 0x8cb6c0] The v4l2 frame is 8316 bytes, but 153600 bytes are expected Motion can be setup in such a way that it only captures images and/or video when something moves in the camera's field of vision. To watch the stream in other browsers than Firefox you'll need to install a Java applet. Update below . Chrome (Windows) will display the first image, when using the IFRAME method, but it won't reload the stream. IE 9 can't deal with either method, apparently. disable unused services (e.g.

InstallGuide : Debian Here you will get a step by step compilation guide for GNU/Linux Debian Squeeze and *Ubuntu. Why compiling ? You can not use the python-opencv package because he provide old python support (for more information, check this bug report .).On Ubuntu, python bindings won't work (check this bug report ) So you must use the compilation. There is also some more info on the Linux Install Guide for OpenCV . Prerequisites Package needed The package you will need can be installed using the following commands (on Debian Lenny): Notes: Not all those packages are necessarily needed. apt-get install libpython2.6 python-dev python2.6-dev # Only if you want to use python If your system has trouble with building "libjpeg.so", you may need to build it manually , or try this: apt-get install libjpeg-progs libjpeg-dev On Ubuntu 10.10 this apt-get was needed to recognize gstream-app and gstreamer-vid development headers apt-get install libgstreamer-plugins-base0.10-dev Getting the latest stable OpenCV version a.

EVRYTHNG Mise en place du WiFi sur le Raspberry Pi Comme je l'ai dit dans mon article précédent, je voulais, dans un premier temps, utiliser mon Raspberry Pi pour mettre une webcam dans la chambre de mon bébé (donc juste en ligne de commandes via SSH, pas d'interface graphique). Ne voulant pas tirer de câble réseau dans sa chambre, j'ai regardé pour brancher le Raspberry Pi en WiFi via une clé WiFi. C'est très simple, voici la marche à suivre. Choix de la clé WiFi Dans un premier temps, j'ai du choisir la clé WiFi à mettre sur mon Raspberry. Je voulais une clé automatiquement reconnue sur Raspbian, qui ne coûte pas cher et qui supporte la faible alimentation du Raspberry. Pour faire mon choix, je me suis aidé de cette page qui liste les périphériques compatibles avec la Raspbian. Configuration de la clé WiFi Une fois la clé branchée sur le Rasberry, sa configuration est très simple, dans le fichier /etc/network/interfaces, il m'a suffit de commenter de commenter ces lignes : et d'ajouter celles-ci :

Utiliser Raspberry Pi et sa PiCam comme serveur webcam | Épinglé! Suite à plusieurs mails reçus ces derniers temps me demandant comment je procède pour capturer des images avec la PiCam et les envoyer sur un serveur FTP, j'ai décidé de rédiger ce tuto que je vais tenter de faire le plus complet possible. C'est la procédure que j'ai mis en place pour obtenir cette image sur mon autre site personnel. (À noter que les serveurs free sont perturbés en ce moment et l'actualisation des données et de la weather cam peuvent ne pas avoir été mises à jours correctement). Comme vous avez pu le remarquer, le module PiCam ne fonctionne pas comme une webcam classique et n'est pas pris en charge comme un module vidéo classique qui se monte en /dev/video0. Pour ce faire, nous allons utiliser tous les outils Raspbian pour mettre en œuvre la prise d'images régulière, le traitement de cette image et l'envoi sur un serveur distant. Avant de commencer, assurez-vous bien que la PiCam fonctionne, sinon reportez-vous à ce tuto de mise en route. Les prérequis Les scripts

Foscam FI8918W + Motion : bricolage perso Le besoin Tout en sachant parfaitement que mes bricolages ne remplaceraient jamais un véritable système d'alarme, je voulais mettre en place quelque chose qui me prévienne lors de la détection d'un mouvement chez moi. Bien sur, le système devait être le plus automatisé possible, et facilement pilotable depuis un smartphone. Détection de mouvement Premier gros soucis, je ne suis pas parvenu à faire fonctionner la foscam avec Zoneminder. Paramétrer motion pour qu'il utilise la caméra se fait sans difficulté : netcam_url Pour connaître la liste des arguments possible et ainsi pouvoir régler la résolution et la fréquence de capture, je vous invite à aller lire ceci. Le vrai soucis était plutôt le paramétrage lié à la détection de mouvement. Un peu d'automatisation Détecter les mouvements c'est fait. on_movie_end /etc/motion/scripts/movie_end "%t@%f" Ici j'assemble %t et %f, en utilisant un @ comme séparateur. Motorisation La encore, je vous renvoi à cette page.
