But that would be all or nothing, no? I want all cameras to record except one in specific. 

Thanks!

Jason,

if you're using the latest SVN code, you can run motion with a commandline
switch to disable detection at startup: -m

I have a random indoor wireless camera that sometimes I plug in and leave
on the fireplace mantle when we're away, mostly to use as a dog babysitter
since we're at the point where we're starting to trust him a bit more out
and about. My goal is to have all of my cameras attached to Motion since
Motion, of course, does some awesome motion based recording. The only issue
is, I don't want this camera doing any sort of recording. I just want it
for viewing. I do however have a web page I whipped up (some of you may
remember this discussion last week... I actually added some info to the FAQ
page
here<http://www.lavrsen.dk/foswiki/bin/view/Motion/FrequentlyAskedQuestions#How_do_I_see_more_than_one_camera_stream_at_a_time_63>...
I use Method 2 with the HTML/CSS mix) which allows me to see multiple feeds
in one page. By tying this camera into Motion, I can utilize Motion's web
server functionality and just paste in the IP:Port's for each camera feed
in the HTML/CSS file. I suppose I could put in each camera's individual
mjpg stream URL, but it's just easier and much nicer to utilize Motion's
web server functionality.

But in that particular instance, I'm going against the grain with not
wanting Motion to do recording. The only thing I can think of is
incorporating a 100% solid black mask so nothing can ever trigger motion.
But I got to wondering, is there a way to adjust the thread.conf file of
that camera to enforce no recording whatsoever? Or is the mask the optimal
solution?

Thanks guys!
