Day 129 – Snapshot and Movie

The S.A.R.T Interface has two new highly requested features!


The snapshots feature allows the user to take a snapshot of the camera’s view at any point. The screenshot is then instantly downloaded to the connected client thanks to a simple PHP file.


The movie feature is slightly different. It runs the Motion command makemovie, which saves an event to a video file. An “event” is defined by motion, so an event would last from when motion is first detected until motion ceases.

Currently movies have to be downloaded from the Motion directory, as they do not automatically download.
