3.7. Extensions

One of the nice things about using a script for a project like this is that it's easy to modify and extend. Some of the things you might want to do include:

  • Save both a JPEG snapshot and a few seconds of video. You could even capture video until you receive the "off" signal from the motion detector indicating that movement is no longer being detected.

  • Have the script send an email to your pager if no motion is detected around feeding time.

  • Archive pictures older than a week by shrinking them to 320x240 and increasing the JPEG compression.

  • Organize the pictures for constant use by creating separate folders for months and years.
