Hello everyone,

I want to monitor a webcam for motion detection. I want to add the text, "MOTION DETECTED" on the live video stream when motion is detected: image description

I know how to use cv2.createBackgroundSubtractorMOG2(), adding text to live video, and using OpenCV drawing functions:

I'd greatly appreciate any help that I can recieve.

I'm sorry, but what exactly do you need help with, if you already know how to do these things? Perhaps I'm misinterpreting your question.

Apply the findNonZero function to your foreground mask, then see if at least 10% of your image content is changing (since you want to ignore noise), and trigger the alarm.
