Re: Surveillance camera based on BuildRoot and Motion

Your network path doesn't seem like a network path. It should look something like \\address\share\path\to\dir\. Unless such a path is reachable from Windows Explorer on another computer, don't even try to configure it in motionPie. Calin. Hi, 1) Please post all your email settings as shown in the UI...

Re: Surveillance camera based on BuildRoot and Motion

I'm sorry this isn't working out for you. However if you say you learned a few things about how the system works, I believe you're off to a good start with motion and motionEye installed separately on your OS of preference. Thanks for the help. Unfortunately this is not working either. I have tried ...

Re: Surveillance camera based on BuildRoot and Motion

Use "NAS" for server, "media" for share name and "/Movies/Pi-CAM" for root directory. Actually it exactly the same path what I use on my Linux host (in fstab). When I leave the c/ out of the path in fstab it is not posible to connect from Linux. Anyways when I access my NAS from a Windows computer i...

Re: Surveillance camera based on BuildRoot and Motion

Well for starters the share name is invalid. It should definitely not contain slashes. "c/media/Movies/Pi-CAM" looks more like what you should input for the root directory. I could help you with the values you need to input for the various fields if you posted the path that you use in Windows Explor...

Re: Surveillance camera based on BuildRoot and Motion

You cannot protect the mjpeg stream with username and password. It's impossible with motionPie. Oh ok I thought I saw somewhere there is a parameter for username and password for motion. When I try to access from http//externalip:8081 I don't get asked for a password, it goes straight to the stream....

Re: Surveillance camera based on BuildRoot and Motion

Your first problem (the IP-related one) may be because you separate the arguments following the "-s" by a space and not by a colon ":" when running writeimage.sh. Your command should look like this: writeimage.sh -d /dev/sdx -i motionPie-20140924.img -n "My SSID:My Password" -l -p 8082 -s "1.2.3.4/2...

Re: Surveillance camera based on BuildRoot and Motion

It is very likely that your sdcard device is in fact /dev/sda, and not /dev/sda1 (which stands for the first partition). Give it a try with -d /dev/sda and come back with the output you get now. I used write image.sh on a Pi: pi@raspberrypi ~ $ ./writeimage.sh -d /dev/sda1 -i ./motionPie-20140924.im...

Use writeimage.sh from a Linux if you must use motionPie with a Raspberry PI model A. Let me know what the output of the command looks like. Sadly I remain totally baffled. Have now tried writing to 2 different SD cards from Windows, Mac and a Pi running Raspbian. I have no problem writing my Raspbi...

Re: Surveillance camera based on BuildRoot and Motion

Your PSU seems alright. There might by an issue with the polyfuses earlier B models had mounted on the power supply circuit as well as on the USB power line.

Re: Surveillance camera based on BuildRoot and Motion

The symptoms of your model B crashing quickly after boot indicate in 90% of the cases a bad power supply. Try using a better one (i.e. higher max current, possibly a 5.25V one, shorter and thicker wires). Regarding the model A with no ethernet, you have to use the writeimage.sh script and preconfigu...

Re: Surveillance camera based on BuildRoot and Motion

Re: Surveillance camera based on BuildRoot and Motion

Add two Remote Motioneye cameras to a third motionPie. Don't add them as Network cameras (the CPU of a PI won't be sufficient for such a scenario). An even better scenario is to install motionEye (not motionPie!) on a fourth PC and use it just for watching the three remote motioneye cameras. Hi, I g...

Re: Surveillance camera based on BuildRoot and Motion

The share name should be the name of the shared folder (the folder configured as shared) on your NAS. I'm not sure if that is "volume1" indeed. Anyways it should appear in "smbclient -L 192.166.3.106" in the column "Sharename". Root directory is whatever you want it to be, it will be automatically c...
