Folder_watcher not working - no errors?

It was too inconsistent, I eventually just put a delay in the automation - so it waits a minute after its triggered before sending the file

I think i’ve figured this out now. Its over engineered, but seems to be working more consistently, and get access to a higher image in the notification (the nest ones were blurry)

So it uses Watch Folder to check when a new file is created in the specified folder, that will trigger my shell command that will simply copy the newest file from the nest directory , and copy it to the www folder at ‘latest’ (Used copy to keep the originals in nest folder incase I ever need them & move to latest in destination folder so that this folder doesn’t fill up)

The notification simply uses the latest.jpg image each time, which so far get’s updated and haven’t noticed a significant delay from the original way of doing it (both automations are running while i assess) and of course, each time you have a valid image

move_media_file_for_notification: cp $(ls -t1 /ls -t1 nest/event_media/a5a101b3b10822886f2c9a1155538391/*camera_person.jpg | head -n1) /config/www/media/latest.jpg
