Build your network camera security system using CameraSentry for Linux. This software allows you to monitor multiple network cameras and take automatic actions based on movement detection.
To start monitoring you have to insert URL of network camera you would like to monitor. You can configure different parameters for monitoring, such as, what happens when a movement is detected. You can also set schedules, for example, when a certain camera should start recording, enable motion sensor, take snapshot or perform other similar actions.
Movement detection can be fine-tuned by setting a sensitivity parameter, and also by defining areas where a movement should be ignored, or by defining only specific areas where a movement should be monitored. This way you can avoid triggering any unwanted detections.
You can also configure various alerts and actions when a movement on certain camera is detected. You can start recording a video, sound an alarm, send an email with attached images from camera and also automatically upload video or images via FTP.
All in all, CameraSentry for Linux is a useful camera monitoring app that can help you set up advanced camera surveillance system for your home, office or any other area.
