Tested on Android Oreo only. To work, you must have installed the "Thief Alarm & Motion Detector" (id: "com.Security") application, by Quality Patterns. It is free, lightweight and ad-free.

How to use:

1) In Android settings, open the list of permissions granted to the "Anti-Theft Alarm" app and revoke access to sending SMS messages.

2) Open the application. In the settings window, enable the SMS sending option and configure it using an invalid phone number ("0", for example).

3) Run this flow and start app motion detection. So, when any movement is detected by the camera, Automate will act.
