It's easy and ready to use. Just plug in a webcam and run this docker, then
videos and images will be saved once a motion is detected while a notification
e-mail including the recorded video and a preview image will be sent. On top of
that, the webcam can be accessed anytime via HTTP live streaming.
Clone this project then
cd into it:
git clone https://github.com/jshridha/docker-motion cd docker-motion
Build or pull the image
Then build your own dockmotion Docker image:
docker build -t motioneye .
Note that a pre-built image is also available:
docker pull jshridha/motioneye:latest
Run the container with configs , e.g.,
docker run -d --name=motioneye \ --device=/dev/video0 -p 8081:8081 \ -p 8765:8765 \ -e TIMEZONE="America/New_York" \ -e PUID="99" \ -e PGID="100" \ -v /mnt/user/appdata/motioneye/media:/home/nobody/media \ -v /mnt/user/appdata/motioneye/config:/config \ jshridha/motioneye:latest
--deviceflag should be replaced by your webcam's device ID.
- Set the PUID and PGID enviornmental variables to match those of the user and group to run the app (optional, default is PUID=99 and PGID=100)
- Expose port 8765 to access the motioneye interface
Expose port 8081 to access the motion api - make sure you replace "webcontrol_localhost on" with "webcontrol_localhost off" in motion.conf
Mount a volume /config to persist the configuration
- Mount a volume to /home/nobody/media to persist the media (webcam image stills)
