KED's Motion Tools


A few tools made for my own motion usage but maybe other can make use of it or get some inspiration.

I'll start with three tools

Camview - a webpage with buttons for stop/start motion detection.
scam - "Set Camera" - a commandline php script for stop, start, status of motiondetection of one or all cams.
stlt - "Set Time Lapse Time" - a commandline php script for setting Timelapse interval for all cams.

Detailed Description

Most important is that the tools requires that cameras are defined in thread files, even when only having a single camera.
If a single camera is defined in motion.conf it will get thread no.0 and my tools expect camera 1 to be in thred 1 and so on.

A few lines need checking/correction of username, password, motionserver and Motion Control Port.

Camview require a webserver with CGI, PHP, cambozola and a working mj-prox from Kenneth's A browser with Java, JavaScript and frames enabled is required to run the page.

Attached Files Unzip files to a directory on your webserver, copy cambozola.jar to this directory, read the README and correct the files as described.

scam: check the top lines, make file executable and place in ex. /usr/local/bin

stlt: check the top lines, make file executable and place in ex. /usr/local/bin

To download scam and stlt, rightclick and select "save taget as".

camview is testet in IE6 and Mozilla Firefox 1.0.7, running on apacheserver in FC3, FC4 and FC5.
scam is testet on full updated FC3, FC4 and FC5.
stlt is testet on full updated FC3, FC4 and FC5.

Let me now if it dont work for you, it could be the "file_get_contents" that need to be replaced with "wget" but i think it should work on all updated systems as is.
