Is It possible to detect file creation in openhab rule ?
Il have xiaomi camera with synology surveillance station. Il want to send notification or send command ‘ON’ on a virtual switch when motion is detected. But, it’s not possible to get this information through surveillance station. I think, file created detection is the best way (file.mp4 is created on my synology when motion is detected).
Any ideas ? Thanks
(sorry for my english)
Exec binding with a shell script could do what you want
You could implement it in a rule using some of the classes built into Java:
This would be a little more responsive than polling a shell script, though the shell script would probably be easier to implement.
You could also use the systeminfo binding to watch the number of files in your target directory.
Thanks for your differents answers. How can i do this ? With systeminfo to detect new files ?
Just set it up like described in the docs.
You’ll need to create an item to track the number of files in the target directory, along with a rule to send your notification when that value changes.
