I've got an idea for a new project. I want to turn a raspberry pi board with camera module into an ip camera with face recognition built in. I already its possible to do face recognition using OpenCV with the camera module. But what I need is to forward the constant video stream onto another computer via a network and for the face recognition element on the raspberry to forward the alerts should it detect a known face. Now I know that you can forward the video stream from the raspberry to a host terminal using zoneminder. Which should solve part of the issue hopefully. But then there is the face recognition element. What I'd prefer is have the face recognition program on the pi but for its database of faces that it searches through to be on the host computer. Then when the pi gets a hit to flash up a message on the host terminal and hopefully trigger an alert on zoneminder so it can trigger external alert.
I know that sounds like a mission but I think it is possible if difficult.
Any help would be greatly appreciated
