A few other options are 'motion', if you are using an Ubuntu derivative it will be in the repositories, cheese which is more limited and I don't believe detects motion and guvcview. I would say that from my limited experience with them, zoneminder would be the best although it may bee more complicated to setup but I think it works better and is also better documented. Read the documentation thoroughly before starting. It will save you a lot of headaches.
