my Raspi uses the original raspicam and motion to stream security footage to my nas. This works great so far. I now want to additionally take a picture every 1 hour and save it somewhere. Obviously I can't just put a raspistill command into a cron job because motion would be still blocking the cam. And I don't want to get hacky and start/stop motion every time I take a picture. Is there a way to do it with motion, or can I somehow tap the motion stream, to get my still picture?
any input is welcomed!
