Question looking for a suse app that can safeguard my flat via webcam

ok hard to come up with a title that says it in a nutshell lol

im a nightguard and we have had some breakins around my area so im getting worried

now from 9pm till 10am my server pc is on it runs linux (opensuse to be precise) is there a free piece of software that can do all or some of the following;

1 using a webcam watch for movement and email me a picture if movement is detected (it would need to use my gmail account so it would need to be able to log into it to send them or allow password on its smtp link)

2 allow me to view my camera in real time (or with 10 second jpgs though real time is better) from the web SECURELY ie a with a login page etc)

any help greatfully recieved

ZoneMinder ( ) - I don't know if it's in SUSE's repositories but you can just get it from their site.
