Re: Setting up the Pi 3 in security camera role - help pleas

Setting up the Pi 3 in security camera role - help please!

I would like to set up my Pi3 and Pi camera so that I can watch the video stream over the Internet and also use motion sensing to send me an email if motion is detected. I've tried doing this with MotionEyeOs but despite reading up all I could and watching videos, as a beginner the gaps in my unders...

Re: New 8MP Camera - Q&A thread

I had a go - two goes actually - at making the credit-card tool this morning but it's a bit too small for my fingers (and possibly eyes!) to do well enough to work. Is there going to be any way to get hold of an actual 'spanner' for the v2 lens for those of us not able to make one?
