Working Devices

If you add an entry for a Network camera, please provide the URL that is required for motion to access the camera images. If the camera supports both a jpeg and mjpeg mode, please provide a URL for both modes. Please be aware that TWiki will try to interpret a URL and either link to it or show it as a picture. To avoid this, write the URL like this: <literal>netcam_url http://CAMERA_IP/axis-cgi/jpg/image.cgi?showlength=1</literal>

The following makers have devices that have been reported to work with Motion

  • Brooktree based cards (BT848 or BT878/9)
  • SE401 based cameras
  • Greyscale quickcam cameras
  • It's not specifically mentioned, but Motion can be IP cameras for Motion. You can build a master and satellite architecture using obsolete P-4 computers and cheap USB cams

HongJingTian brand HD IP-Camera Model C6F0SeZ3N0P0L0

HongJingTian brand Chinese HD outdoor wireless IP-Camera best identified as two identifications - C6F0SeZ3N0P0L0 and hi3510. The hi3510 is the ID for the internal board that is used in many Chinese cameras, even though, externally, they may look different. Any software that claims compatibility with C6F0SeZ3N0P0L0 or hi3510 will probably work with this camera. It works perfectly with MOTION with the following URL:

Intellinet net cameras

Work with Motion. Intellinet cameras have an embedded Linux sysop.

You can check it at camera boot only if you are connected by serial port to the camera.

To configure this netcam for Motion, you must set the jpg image name Name-Of-Jpeg-Image and Network-Tranfert-Image-Port from the camera http setup interface and after put something like this into motion.conf:

  • netcam_url http://camera_ip/jpg/Name-Of-Jpeg-Image.jpg (with no Port)
  • netcam_url http://camera_ip:Network-Tranfert-Image-Port/jpg/Name-Of-Jpeg-Image.jpg (with port spec)

Miscellaneous Netcams found (with Google) on the web

While developing the netcam software, I tried to search and test with as many different cameras as I (or Google) could find. Here are the details of the way I was able to connect with some of them. In each case, I start with the camera IP address, represented below by CAMERA_IP.

Cheap BT878 Cards from ebay

Lots of cheap cards at ebay are offered with 4 Inputs and BT878 Chipset.

Work fine with bttv driver set to card=77 or card=118

Original Vendor is named Gammagraphx

btspy tells:
Chip: Bt878 , Rev: 0x00
 Subsystem: 0x00000000
 Vendor: Gammagraphx, Inc.
Values to MUTE audio:
Mute_GPOE  : 0xf00000
 Mute_GPDATA: 0xf00000
 has TV Tuner: No
 Number of Composite Ins: 4

As mentioned before: Framerate and Quality is what you pay for. Anyhow: for basic motion detection it works fine with as well lowcost 1/3`` CCTV Cams.

Adding parameter to the driver with modprobe:

modprobe -r bt878 (because the bttv module was used by that module)
modprobe -r bttv
modprobe bttv card=77
modprobe bt878

To make this parameter adding persistent:

Add "options bttv card=77" (77 was the value that worked for me) in /etc/modprobe.d/options.

Sweex JA200010 network camera

My specimen of this camera shows many dead pixels and has very poor sensitivity. Only fit for use as a security camera in well-lit areas. Not sure whether this is a problem specific to my camera or a general issue of poor design/quality of Sweex. I'd be interested to learn the experiences of others with this camera.

Elro CS71C Surveillance Camera (B/W)

This camera is in principle a standard CCTV (composite video) camera (PAL B/W). However the camera is made for a special Elro switch system and the interface is not specified in the manual. But it is possible to buy just the camera and connect it to a capture card. Here is how.

Edit access denied

Pin Wire Colour Function
1 Green Audio
2 - Not connected
3 White Video
4 - Not connected
5 Red Power +12 VDC
6 Black Ground
Ground is common for video, audio and power.

The power supply is not documented but based on some measurements it is most likely +12 VDC. It may be up to + 15 VDC. The power consumption is 400 mA at 12 V and 500 mA at 15 V.

The camera is based on the A1 PROs chips Ai1001S and Ai5412 and an unmarked chip.

KMC 4400R (A.K.A: Kodicom or a 4400) DVR capture card

Four chip, 8 port (theoretically 16 ports?) bt878 based capture card, rated 120FPS.

More information about getting this card to work available here:

I'm currently using 5 x USB cameras connected to USB cards with via chips and 4 x 480 line pinhole cameras connected to this card on a 4000+ AMD64 X2. Seems to handle about 8 cameras recording simultaneously at 15fps with minimal frame drops (this is with despeckle and locate switched off).

Security Eyes Multi-Port PV149PA (a.k.a. Pro Video 149)

Four port, four chip, bt878 based capture card. Rated 120fps.

Inputs are BNC , supports PAL and NTSC

Currently using with three IR illuminating CCTV cameras of such generic Chinese origin it's hard to tell if the model numbers are significant or specific to the reseller.

Performance has been great on Ubuntu Dapper using the Ubuntu packages of motion and ffmpeg.

I'm not sure if this is permitted, but this is where I sourced the card from. I have no affiliation with the vendor at all, service was fine though.

The image below is from one of the cams, via motion.

This is the exact model link to the supplier I used, again no affiliation with this vendor, just a satisfied customer.

Mine has 58 IR LED's and it is a 6mm lens variant. I posted this picture as I found almost no examples of how well the IR illumination works online. The below snap is in total darkness, you wouldn't be able to see much of anything with the naked eye in the conditions when it was taken. It's rather stunning performance from what I'd expected.

AVerMedia LX5004 4-port 4xbt878 (100/120fps) grabber card

I bought the card from:

Good things:

  • It it not expensive (39£ + shipment expenses).
  • Each input has its own Brooktree Corporation Bt878 Video Capture chip which makes it possible to get high frame rates simultaneously on all four channels.
Successfull installation on 1GHz Intel Pentium III with PCI LX5004 card using Linux distro: Fedora Core 2

Bad things:

  • No hardware compression, so needs much CPU power.
  • No usable support from The guy does not even know how to copy a CD correct to make the copy bootable (like the original CD).
  • No usable support from They does not sell it any more, and they does not have RD ressources for questions.
  • bttv driver card list does not include this card.
  • The shipped software did not work (could not install).
Load the bttv driver correct (after a reboot) by adding this to /etc/rc.local
rmmod bt878
 rmmod bttv
 modprobe bttv radio=-1 card=77,77,77,77
 modprobe bt878
 modprobe tuner type=-1

The motion configuration file needs to have input=0 (and not input=1 as you might think).

At the time of writing I only have 2 cams up and running. Both with 3fps in 320x240 (gives about 60% cpu usage on motion).

Max frame rate on this 1GHz Pentium III is about 10fps in 320x240 (with only motion on one cam at a time).

So a faster CPU is needed to take advantage of the 4 bt878 chips (giving theoretically a total of 100pfs for PAL).

My configuration might be available at

If you know how to control (set/read) the digital pins on the Sub-D connector on this card, then please let me know (by adding it to this chapter).

Micro Innovations Basic Webcam Model IC50C

This webcam cost $18 at Fry's. In this office the light is barely adequate. Fedora Core 6 did not ship with the gspca driver so I had to download that special (lsusb gives ID 093a:2468 Pixart Imaging, Inc. Easy Snap Snake Eye WebCam). Also, the 3.2.7 build of motion doesn't have V4L2 support yet, but once I compiled the latest source (motion-20061127-051001) the camera worked at 320x240 - see my mascot:


Unfortunately moving objects are badly blurred, a problem I hadn't encoutered in even the cheapest CCTV pinhole camera. For example, someone walking past the camera is unrecognizable, making this webcam unsuitable for surveillance.

Comparison of some cameras bought in Denmark

All prices is including danish "moms".
Cam1: Monacor: TVCCD-32MCOL (750kr)
Cam2: Danbit 22.17: KAM-IR24 , NICC-739WP24IRF8 (986kr)
Cam3: Monacor: TVCCD-45MIR (389kr) (I have removed the 6 LED's)
Cam4: Danbit 22.12: KAM-MINI-M (349kr)
Cam5: Danbit 22.10: KAM-MINI-SH (199kr)
Cam 6: Philips TouCam II Pro (USB) (700kr)
Danbit (different lenses) 22.17: KAM-MINI-L++ (336kr) All except Cam6 have composite output (PAL) 1Vp-p 75\x{03a9} and supply voltage +12V DC.

Cam1 has very true colours and a very sharp picture. It can not see in darkness, but it is good if a halogen spot is used. It keeps the colours at low light and therefore there will be some noise in the colour picture due to the low light. Horizontal angle approximately 65º (with default lens).

Cam 2 has a very small horizontal angle (maybe 25º), so it is not very suitable for survaillance of a wide area. Colours are okey during good light conditions. At low light it switches automatically to B/W and turns on the IR LEDs. If there is anything close to the camera in the edge of the picture (like the roof, etc), then it will reflect the light making the whole picture bad. The IR diodes are very red and very easy to see, so it is not suitable as a hidden camera. If there is nothing close to the camera, then the IR diodes work fine and gives sufficient light at least up to 5 meters. It automatically regulates the IR power, which is observed by the color of the LED's. For survaillance it is not very usable, as it is not invisible and therefore a solution with a halogen spot and no IR is a better choice. If the LED's did not have that strong red color it would have been a very nice camera.

Cam 3 has a horizontal angle of 80º and is also very sharp. It is only B/W and without housing. It is only a camera module.

Cam 4 is small and includes housing. Horizontal angle is about 60º, but the camera is bad during low light. A halogen spot did not work well with this camera. The housing gets quite hot.

Cam 5 is a lot like Cam 3. But is it not quite as sharp a picture. But it is very cheap and includes housing, so it is very easy to use.

Cam6: Very good light sensitivity. Horizontal angle about 60º. But if there is quick movement, the picture gets blurred.

Conclusion: For a cheap solution use Cam 5 (about 36USD). For best quality use Cam 1 (about 140USD).

Conceptronic C54NETCAM, wireless net camera

Worked out of the box. Work fine. Just power on and the camera connected with router quickly. Just browse to the factory default IP address ( and up comes the admin page. The mounting base is metal and will hold the cam at any angle. Also, it has mounting holes on both the top and bottom, so you can mount either from above or below.

SparkLAN CAS-330

The CAS-330 seems to be similar to the D-Link DCS-900. The current JPEG can be fetched via


and the MJPEG stream is available at


I would recommend to set the camera's resolution to the maximum 640x480 (not the default) with the lowest compression settings. The focus should also be set manually. It's not needed to install the Windows software that comes with the CD. The MAC address is printed on a sticker on the lower side of the camera's body. It works well with DHCP.

The image quality is appropriate for home surveillance but it's not great. For video conferencing on the desktop it's perfect. But especially during high contrasts (e.g. sunshine on parts of the picture) the camera doesn't properly adapt to the light conditions. It's affordable though and is available for <100€.
