Motion - Support Question 2015x 08x 21x 032200

Launching a script

Question

Is there a way to have motion run a script on detection instead of recording video? I've got an all in one with a webcam as a photo frame and I'd like to be able to turn the screen on and off based on motion detection and was hoping I could use your program to support this.

Thanks
