Each widget can control a single camera using Motions's http remote control API:
Each widget contains four buttons to control a camera:
1) check the camera status
2) start the camera
3) pause the camera
4) take a snapshot with the camera
If the widget is unable to connect to Motion, please check that your network and routers are configured correctly to allow you to connect. You can test this from a PC using the following curl command:
curl -v -u"user:password" http://www.yourmotionserver.com:8000/0/detection/status
If you do not receive a HTTP 200 status code from this request, then the widget will also not be able to connect to Motion.
The full internet access permission is needed to access the HTTP interface of your Motion server. Internet access is not used for any other purpose.
