Motion Detection


jHawkingCam is a lightweight Java library and application that allows you to access Hawking Technologies cameras, download still images, rotate them, add a time stamp, and archive them.  The archiver uses motion detection to limit the number of images captured.  These cameras are great security devices since they only require you to plug them in, the images are downloaded wirelessly. Catch 'em in the act!

This isn't a fancy security monitoring suite, just the minimum basics needed to get platform independent access to these Hawking cameras.  Note that I used the Hawking HNC-230G for all of my testing.  If anyone wants to supply me with other models, I'll gladly incorporate them into the program.
