First of all thanks for the wonderful community! I have become a fan of the Pi a month ago, using it predominantly for sports footage. However, I have two interesting issues to solve:
A) motion detection
- the Pi B/B+ should record all day long a football pitch (unattended, left on batteries)
- the Pi B/B+ will store the videos locally on the SD Card
- since the Pi is unattended, is it possible to make it record and store a video only after it recognizes some motion on the pitch so that we avoid deleting the moments when there is no play?
- I have made a research myself and have found the open-source motion detection software Motion (Motion is a program that monitors the video signal from cameras. It is able to detect if a significant part of the picture has changed; in other words, it can detect motion.):

- Are there any other similar possibilities out there that you recommend for this case?
B) motion recognition - trajectory, movement trails
- the Pi is now with a standard camera module, without IR
- what are the advantages of using an IR camera module - in our use case the videos will be taken only when there is daylight outdoors, never in low light or when it is dark
- does anyone know a way of tracking movements/trajectory of an object via IR assuming that the object has been specifically painted/sprayed for the purpose?
Thank you very much for the attention.
