Webcam security and “motion detect” with Linux

webcam

Set up a Security Webcam with "motion detect" using linux, in contrast to other solutions, is a procedure quite simple, despite the lack of a GUI for the configurations (often it is good not to have a GUI). On the front "hardware" everything we need is a webcam USB, regarding the software we will need a Linux distribution and the program "motion" (in the official repositories). Below I translate and I simplify the procedure comes from the blog Chriswpage.com.
