Motion - Support Question 2014x 09x 15x 182600

Snapshot Start Time

Question

I'm using motion to do a snapshot every 24 hours. Everything works great. But, the snapshot occurs at 1900 hours every day, and I would like to change it to 1200 hours every day instead. How do I modify the time away from 1900, but still only take a snapshot every 24 hours?
I have no errors.

Environment

Motion version: 3.2.12
ffmpeg version:  
Libraries: ffmpeg, mysql, postgresql
Server OS: Raspbian

Answer

You can use external script to trigger motion snapshot. Just schedule this command using cron:

curl -s http://localhost:8080/0/action/snapshot > /dev/null
