So here's my idea since the camera software I'm running on my Mac supports scripts.

I was thinking of doing a quick Automator script in OS X that would basically turn on certain lights if motion was detected by my IP Cameras at night.

For example, if my front IP camera detected motion in the middle of the night, it would then tell my 2412N to turn on my front lights for 5 minutes then turn them off.

I've seen the custom commands on both the Smarthome Wiki as well as in the web interface for the 2412N but was curious as to the actual web address that I would need to put into Automator so the computer will actually open the browser, turn the lights off then open a new page and turn the lights off after 5 minutes.

This is all in theory but I can't test it because I can't figure out the exact web address to put in for the automation process.

Anyone have any experience or idea that can lead me in the right direction?
