Installation- motion application on RPi

I always use motion program to demo to the students the power of rpi and video monitoring. Here is how I installed and configured the application.

1. motion installation

#pacman -Sy
#pacman -S motion

 2. Edit configuration

$sudo vi /etc/motion/motion.conf

daemon on

# The mini-http server listens to this port for requests (default: 0 = disabled) webcam_port 8081 As we want to use a high quality surveillance video, we've set the resolution to 1280x720:

width 1280
height 720

#Enable access to the live stream from anywhere
webcam_localhost off

 3. Access the camera http://YOUR_IP_ADDRESS:8081 

 That's it!
