Ratcam allows you to control your RaspberryPi camera through a Telegram bot, and alerts you when movement is detected, by sending photos and videos.

The idea came to me when I found traces of mice in my house; rather than adopting drastic measures (and having to deal with the remains), I wanted to figure out from where they entered.
