Hi Leen,

Motion comes to mind, but I can't answer much more for you. Go to the link
and take a look at it. The mailing list is extremely active but still stays
fairly small, so you won't get bombarded with 500 a day.
The maintainer is very helpful and it looks as if Motion has a few more
programmers now helping, so it's really been taking off like a rocket lately.



Thanks John, will check this later.
I have also been looking around, and have found zoneminder:

which looks very promising for what I need.
Thanks for thinking with me.
