Over on ClassThink.com I have posted a new part to my Vocal Intruder warning system, adding in photo capture of the person/thing that moved passed the PIR.
For this we are using the fantastic Raspberry Pi Camera modules. The camera costs around £20 and plugs into one of the special sockets on the Raspberry Pi. This socket connects straight into the Graphics Card (GPU) so it has excellent response times (Amazon / CPC Farnel).

On the Raspberry Pi, either via SSH or directly connected, enter the following commands:
