IP Webcam motion detection zones


Hi everyone,

I’ve been trying to figure out if it’s possible to get from the IP Webcam component the motion detection zones. Or to manipulate the video stream in order to do the same.

My idea is to be able to detect the direction of motion:
If i’m going to the right -> turn on bedroom light
or else turn off the light.

Any help is useful
