Yesterday i configured "motion" on my old Raspberry Pi 1 B version with Raspberry camera module. It work all but i have a problem: when i connected at my raspberry with his ip adress, i see the movements very slow. What are the parameters and the values for obtain a low specification with old devices ?

  • What is a "low specification"? Do you mean low delay? Commented Dec 6, 2019 at 12:21

Reduce the quality of the video by motion.conf file. I mean, decrease these values:

width 280  
height 320 
stream_maxrate 90  

Also, it would be better if you disable some functions like stream_motion off. Additionally, check minimum_gap 0 that the value is "0".

Check THIS link out. It could be useful if you reduce the qualities and turn off unusable functions.
