I'm pretty sure this has come up elsewhere, but I can't find it on feature request, so here it goes.
I guess the best way to implement this is as an addon.
The idea is to use XBMC as a baby monitor. That means to be able to monitor your kids as they sleep while you're in the living room watching a movie or listening to music. The system should monitor a LAN (or internet) stream on the background, and take action (display acoustic/visual warning, pause video, play stream, etc.) whenever it detects motion, or a certain level of noise.
I'm not sure how difficult it is to have a simultaneous stream being processed in the background. The rest should be fairly easy (I guess, I never coded for XBMC)
Great work anyways!

Rather than try and make xbmc do this, you are probably better off using a program like zoneminder that already has support for monitoring video and detecting motion. You could then have zoneminder kick off a script or notification. There used to be an xbmc add on for zoneminder but I don't know what its current status is.
