I’ve updated my Python program to take surveillance pictures from IP-cameras. This updated version can take action after a picture is taken. For each picture to retrieve, you can specify a optional program to be executed; this program receives the picture as argument.
Each line in vs.config can have a 5th parameter now: the name of the program to execute:
Hall.jpg http://192.168.1.1/IMAGE.JPG - Thread1 image-compare.py
I use it to start a program that compares the new picture with the previous picture, and warns me if they are significantly different.
