Cynical SecuritySpy NewB Questions

I've been running SecuritySpy and Indigo for some time as separate applications. I recently added IP cameras that have motion detection capabilities. I want to use the motion sensing capabilities of the IP cams to trigger Indigo lighting scenes, e.g, motion detected at front door camera turns on front flood light.

I've set up the Cynical SecuritySpy Server and have one camera set up also. Any tips on how to do proceed form this point? Should I build a script or is there an easier/better way?

Thanks in advance!

Re: Cynical SecuritySpy NewB Questions

You can define a Cynical SecuritySpy trigger in indigo and add an action to turn on your flood light. It's easy! You also need to enable the camera for motion detection. This can be done within the SecuritySpy app, or you can create an action group in indigo to execute a "setactive". action on the camera device.
