I built a table for my son to build Legos on (trains, buildings, city, all that stuff), and I want to set up a camera that takes pictures of it as he's working. He's not up there daily, so it seems like a waste to set up an intervalometer that takes pictures every day. I'd rather have something that takes photos at an interval only if there's motion. That means I need something that can just sit there and run forever (I'm hoping for months or years), waiting for motion. Is that possible? I have the AC power kit and a UPS, so I have the ability to give it constant power.
I have an A3100 that I'd like to use for this. CHDK is already loaded and configured to boot. Now I need some advice on what script/scripts to use.
There's no shortage of intervalometer or motion detection scripts, but nothing I've seen does everything I need (or I'm just missing something).
So I guess I'm asking this: What combination of intervalometer and motion detection scripts would work best for this? If I need both, I guess I need a motion detector script to kick off an intervalometer script, but maybe there's a motion detection script that will work for this?
