What is Rana?
Rana monitors a camera to detect “frames of motion” (e.g. frames in which a substantial number of pixels in that frame differ from the previous frame and in which these motion-pixels are concentrated into a small area, “the blob”). These motion frames are combined into digital movies which can be subsequently viewed using standard digital video editing suites or movie view tools such as Microsoft media player or the open source VLC viewer.
Use Rana to:
- Make a movie
- Initiate a time-lapse recording (you can specify the required frame rate)
- Output frame containing motion as a jpeg image
- Initiate a user defined script. Such scripts could, for example, set a bell to be rung, make a light flash or cause a door to be locked
If you want something which is not included on the above list it may be possible to easily adapt the system to suit your requirements. If so please get in touch.
