CCTV dvr running on a raspberry pi 4 8gb

Wed Sep 02, 2020 10:45 am

Hi

Im looking for some support, maybe signposting in the right direction.

Im looking to set a raspberry Pi up as a virtual DVR

Can anyone recommend any OS that i should run this on and a program. The cameras are IP and run off the server.

I am a beginner - managed to set up retro pie and also Pi desktop

but looking for guidance if anyone can help?

thank you all

Ian

Instead of using obscure definitions, explain exactly what you want the Pi to do.

What server ?

To keep simple all you need to run on RPI is an FTP server and set the IP cam to record on FTP and for this you don't need 8Gb RAM - 1Gb or 2Gb it is more than enough.
RPI3^2 + RPI4 = :idea:
