SecureCam is a video surveillance system with a nice GUI. It supports multiple camera and video file inputs. It detects motion in input video using fast algorithms. Alarm notification is provided by email, alarm sound, and video recording. Currently, only a Windows installer is provided, but the source can be compiled on Linux.
Trusion is a physical intrusion system that uses users' Webcams to detect motion, which serves as an indicator to start recording video. Optionally, users can choose to have the program upload the videos to an FTP server in the unfortunate event your computer gets stolen or the perpetrator manages to delete the user's local video files. This is a very new project that is enthusiastically welcoming new contributors and their ideas. This project was build using Qt and OpenCV.
