I've seen quite a few security camera examples and many have options for a duty schedule that activates the camera during certain specified days/hours to set up a routine. However I have fairly dynamic schedule and would like for my security cameras to turn on when our phones are not on the WiFi network. This would be an easy shortcut to "on when we're not home" and prevents it from taking intrusive pictures when we are.
Is there a way to configure OpenCV or Motion, or to run a python script to activate a camera when our phones are off the WiFi network? I would like to take advantage of some features of the above software to email or stream footage, so I would like to avoid redesigning a system from the ground up to do this.
Any advice? Thanks!
