    Does anyone have some sort of solution for sending a notification whenever receiving a file via FTP?

    I am using OPenHab for some home automation and would like to get my CCTV to push video to the AsusWrt / Merlin FTP whenever motion is detected. Now the next thing I want to do it notify OpenHab of this delivery.

    OpenHab can accept any kind of communication (a rest request, MQTT, API and so on) - so all I need to know is how to generate an event whenever FTP date is received.

    Use cru to run a script every minute and compare previous output of ‘ls’ on the directory you are FTP’ing to, to the new output. If it’s changed send an alert that a new file has appeared (or disappeared).

    Happy to write it for you if you have no bash/sh scripting experience.
