Motion - Support Question 2011x 08x 27x 162051



I have a 2 Camera setup and would like to turn On or OFF using a Simple script the action for on_movie_start.

Below is a portion of a script I currently use which just removes / or adds the ";" commenting out the line for on_movie_start in the thread file, then I have to stop motion and restart it again.

The line plays a DingDong like a Door bell so I can leave the Shop counter and still hear when people come in.

Is there a dynamic way of doing this without stopping motion?

sed -i 's/on_movie_start/;on_movie_start/g' $MOTION/thread1.conf
echo "The door bell is OFF"

sed -i 's/;on_movie_start/on_movie_start/g' $MOTION/thread1.conf
echo "The door bell isON"
