I finally have Octocam working as a surveillance video so it sends me a series of photographs of anyone who appears at the front door. Very good value and quite inobtrusive. The installation of MotionEyes works just as it says in the tutorial. The problem is setting it up.
There is no manual for MotionEyes, the explanations of all the commands hover above the question spots when you mouse over them. Which means it doesn’t work on an iPad, there is no pointer. So you have to use a Mac or a PC to set it up.
MotionEyes works with the Wifi in the ZeroW, it does not work with a RPi wifi dongle plugged into a Pi Zero.
The Pi ZeroW is quite slow. It will not attach pictures to an email if there is a lot of data in the Camera1 folder. The email program times out waiting for the Pi to respond and sends an a mail wiith no pictures attached.
So it all takes a bit of fine tuning!
