Re: [PLUG] Security Camera Software Recommendation

I used Motion before, worked well as a motion detector. Haven't read all of the documentation for it but possibly could be what you are looking for.

I just ordered a wireless security camera and am soliciting suggestions for
software to use it.

As of now, I plan to put the camera on a separate subnet and install an
"outgoing firewall" on the camera to keep it from phoning home to China.
Beyond that, I would like to record all it's output, and potentially forward
the live stream to a safe (and private) web page so I can keep on eye on it.

I definitely do not want to use the manufacturer's cloud-based software for
fear that it is too easily hacked.

Anybody have any suggestions on software to record, forward, and/or archive
security camera streams?
