You can try mochad which is an open source X10 to TCP gateway. It supports the CM19A (and the CM15A) and can send Ninja camera commands.

http://sourceforge.net/projects/mochad

mochad is not an X10 product and is not supported by X10.

If you are using ZoneMinder for recording, a small script can monitor a motion sensor or door/window sensor via mochad then send commands via mochad to turn lights on. The same script can send an external trigger to ZM to start recording.

Is there a GUI that will work with mochad?

No GUI software. There is a sample CGI program to create a simple web app for controlling X10 devices in the cgi sub-directory. mochad is mostly useful to programmers who want to create custom apps.

I went to the link, but sourceforge reported "no such file or directory", when I did
git://mochad.git.sourceforge.net/gitroot/mochad/mochad (read-only)

I can browse the source, but no way to download and build them on Linux.

The link in the second post of this thread worked fine for me.

Thanks, Brian. I will give that a try.
