Motion Software Configuration

Sat Oct 19, 2013 3:30 pm

First of all thanks for giving your precious time.
I had download software package Motion through apt get. I had did the configuration but the problem is that it is just taking snapshot when I am activating through sudo motion command. It is just taking continious pics even if no motion is present.I had tried with threshold of 1500, 800, 500, 200. But no result.But when I am putting threshold of 2500 it is showing error of "watchdog timer is restarting it again". Please help me. As soon as possible.

The automatic threshold_tune should work just fine. There's also noise level that you can use.
If you look at the Conversion Specifier, you'll see various flags. Some of these can be useful debugging variables.
%D Number of Pixel detected as motion
%i,%J width, height of rectangle containing motion
%N Noise level
%o threshold

Simply put these flags in your filenames, and adjust accordingly.
