ioBroker and the MotionEye WebHook

Q: I would like to use the motion detection in MotionEye to trigger an alarm in ioBroker and access my INSTAR cameras via MQTT or CGI command.

A: We already discussed in our ioBroker and INSTAR alarm server FAQ, how to use the INSTAR alarm server to switch variables in ioBroker. Motioneye offers exactly this function as well:

ioBroker und INSTAR Alarmserver

And the IP camera with the MQTT ID 10D1DC21F5DB will move to the preset position 2 (value=1) every time MotionEye detects a movement.
