    Post Communication protocol between Rasperry Pi device and camera or mobile

    I am a post graduate student who is trying to do a project using the new Raspberry Pi device. I am planning to use debian in the Raspberry Pi device. I am new to linux.
    The main theme of my project is to connect the raspberry pi device with a camera which does live streaming and also a mobile device.
    I need help in where and how to start with the project. I have installed debian in my mac and it works pretty well. I have code blocks to work on the communication protocol.
    I would very much appreciate if someone could help me in this.

    Note sure if you are aware of Zoneminder or not. I don't own a rasberry pi though.

    @rokytnji --- Thanks a lot for the help. . . Zoneminder seems to be apt and suitable for my project. I will look it up. Thanks again.
    Can you tell me how do I work on communication protocols to connect the linux device with a mobile phone and transfer data between each other.
