An Open Source motion detector system for video4linux devices on Linux and BSD OSes
Motion is an open source command-line software written in C and designed to be used for monitoring video signals from video4linux capable devices, such as webcams, under Linux and BSD operating systems.

Motion supports output from motion as JPG and PPM files or MPEG video sequences. It features support for capturing snapshots of movement, simultaneous playback of multiple video devices, simultaneous multiple inputs on a single capture card, live streaming webcam, and motion tracking.

In addition, the software allows users to create MPEG movies in real time using the libavcodec library from the FFmpeg project, capture automated snapshots on regular and irregular intervals using cron, and much more.
