motionEye is a web frontend for the motion daemon, written in Python.
This snap ships with all required binaries included and will automatically
start the motionEye service listening on port 8765 after installation.
Just go to http://%5Byour_ip%5D:8765/ with a web browser, log in to the UI and
start configuring your webcam for motion detection.
To get the full functionality please connect the camera, log-observe and
mount-observe interfaces using the snap connect command.

On an Ubuntu Core system you can achieve this via the two commands below:
