I still get a lot of cats being detected as people, and sometimes vehicle lights reflecting off the side of the house.  But it hasn't missed a person yet.  Think I need to adjust the object pixel size setting, but also don't want to break it.

The only false positives I've had with Sighthound has been the odd cat which is maybe 1-2x per week. I could probably configure things a little better if I tried.

 

Regular motion detection was a waste of time of my front camera at home due to trees moving in the wind and reflections.

 

I'm not a fan of the Synology despite using it. Their licence model is also a complete joke - having to resort to buying licences from sellers on eBay is the stupidest thing in the world.

With Sighthound you can have multiple notifications. I have 1 that records any movement and the 2nd one which is set to detect people on my driveway only with the push notification. It's really good at the people detection.
The only issue I found which they are working on is at a 2nd setup I did at my parents. The stock spark router does not like external ip requests from within the internal network. So when on wifi push notification still works but the app does not want to work. I need to either setup dyndns or get spark to make it static sometime but it's a 5 hr drive...

I'm using ExacqVision server running on an Ubuntu VM. It's not open source or free (which would have been my preference) but it has a web client as well as clients for Linux (my desktop OS), Windows, OSX and mobile devices.

Been using Blueiris for about 3 years now running 6 -8 camera's. Had no issues, very few false alarms (once set up correctly) and it was a good price about $100 nz for 64 camera versions.

 

I tired ispy but way too many false alarms.

I use Sighthound with 8 cameras, it's great...

 

Another option, but not free, however extremely impressive and amazing UI (both on desktop and mobile) was Ksenos.

 

https://ksenos.com

 

Just wish they'd offer an option for home and small business users. The whole "per camera" thing is a cash grab.

Just reporting back on where I've got to... finally had some time Sunday to get back in to this.

 

So have installed Motion + Motioneye on a Debian machine - literally about 15 minutes to have it running (the motioneye Wiki instructions were perfect)! Configured up the cameras, and now just playing around with the different motion detection options.

 

I think this will be a winner! The adjust-ability of everything rocks. And it can do cool stuff like trigger a HTTP Callback which suits me for tying it in to other systems.

 

The web UI rocks on mobile too - so dam good. Definitely got a high WAF which is the main thing with all this mucking around. What I also want to have a play with is Motion's streamer which outputs the stream via HTTP on another port, and it can configured at less resolution which rocks for mobile access (it's how Hikvision do their app too).

 

The only thing it Motioneye lacks in is playback by the looks of it. But I am so happy with it as a front end (and Motion itself seems to be freken awesome) I think it's worth working on something to deal with it. So my plan is going to be a real basic "index" page that simply reads off a SQL table for each camera with each motion event clip as a download link. When motion is triggered, I will simply use a callback to trigger a PHP script that fills in the record on SQL. Once I get something half decent working I will share that with everyone - I know how to build a table and all that, but want to work on some sort of search to narrow down dates/times etc.

Just point the webserver at a directory and you'll get a list of filenames with dates and times. Usually clickable to sort by various fields. Done.

Yep good point. I don't really like the idea of just exposing a directory though. What I am thinking is just each clip gets a 'token' generated for it, i store that in a table, and then the download link just pulls the file based off whatever the token points too. Plus I want to put some authentication on there too. It will be a good learning opportunity too so keen to go a bit over the top.
