I'm not sure what do you need exactly ... but i guess that you want that motion sends you coordinates when motion is detected.

For that you need to use on_motion_detection event .

Here there's all the options :

Mainly i think you will be interested in :

%K - X coordinate in pixels of the center point of motion. Origin is upper left corner.

%L - Y coordinate in pixels of the center point of motion. Origin is upper left corner and number is positive moving downwards (I may change this soon).
