In an effort to make a simple surveillance camera I want to record video as long as there is movement. For that I need to analyze an images every second or so. I would like to start capturing video and stop only after deciding that there is no more movement, for that I need to capture an image while video is recording.
What is the easiest way to do this on RPi2-Python3
Picamera has a 'built in' solution for this
import picamera with picamera.PiCamera() as camera: camera.resolution = (800, 600) camera.start_preview() camera.start_recording('foo.h264') camera.wait_recording(10) camera.capture('foo.jpg', use_video_port=True) camera.wait_recording(10) camera.stop_recording()
