Constatus

Constatus monitors a camera. If it sees anything moving, it will start recording and stops recording if the motion stops.

It can monitor "video4linux" devices (e.g. webcams etc connected directly to a Linux system), MJPEG cameras and JPEG cameras.

While Constatus monitors the camera, you can use the build-in webserver (and VNC server) to view the video stream concurrently.

It can also record all video and/or timelapse videos.

NOTE:: in version 1.6, the configuration file format has completely overhauled. Instead of json, libconfig is now used. This is much more userfriendly.
Included is a program which can convert a Motion-configuration file to a Constatus configuration file.
