  • Best motion detecting video software out there. These guys could easily charge for this, and I would pay. But it's FREE! Woohoo! Beats ZoneMinder, hands down, in simplicity, customizability, and System resource usage (not a hog).

  • Motion is a great piece of software. We've written a tutorial on how to build a surveillance camera with a Raspberry Pi and motion: www.codeproject.com/Articles/665518/Raspberry-Pi-as-low-cost-HD-surveillance-camera

  • Great software for Raspberry pi and Ubuntu. 2 questions: Can I switch off the LED from attached webcam? configuration of IP cam, I cannot unchoose Video0. when preview it gives always webcam preview also when ip is selected. what I have to do?

  • Most features work great! I'm using a Logitech C615 HD USB webcam and motion handles 1080p just fine. My only problem is that "video_pipe" and "Motion_pipe" functions don't work with Ubuntu 12.10 and I need these so that I can use Motion for security and GoogleTalk/Skype at the same time.

  • good job
