Motion

http://motion.sourceforge.net/
Motion uses a video4linux device for detecting movement. It makes snapshots of the movement which can later be converted to MPEG movies, making it usable as an observation or security system. It can send out email and SMS messages or execute an external command when detecting motion. If a change is detected a snapshot will be taken. There is a working device list on the home page to check if your device will work with 'motion.' You can also feed video back to a video4linux loopback for realtime viewing. The program can also take snapshots at regular or irregular intervals using cron.
