The Fireball and Meteor group of Universidad Complutense de Madrid (FM-UCM) belongs to the SPanish Meteor and Fireball Network (SPMN. During the last years we have been developing at Universidad Complutense de Madrid devices for sky patrol which include wide field cameras with wide angle lenses or fish-eye and cheap CCD detectors or even modified webcams. Now we use high sensitivity CCD video cameras. These cameras are so sensitive that can be used to detect meteors. However, the software generates some false positives as passage birds, planes and others. The help of humans to recognize and alert the meteors of the most important events is required.
