Detection from multiple cameras simulteanusly

Question

Does anyone have a good idea to my problem? I want to have 2 cameras watching the same scene and in order to avoid false alarms i want to configure motion to declare detection only if both of 2 cameras detect an event at the same time.

Paste in your error messages, config settings, terminal window output etc in this text field.

Answer

Use a program like Inkscape to compare the two images after they have been saved by Motion.

I use this technique to compare a reference black image with the latest Motion image. This allows me to figure out if the latest image is too dark to bother saving. For your application, this sort of technique is only limited by your scripting skills.
