Post your code and I'll have two cameras online real quick I got as far as automating the timelapse and haven't had time to sort out the scp part. And there's the slight problem that after my autostart capture script runs raspistill in timelapse mode I can't ever get it to stop so I can't ever access the pictures without unplugging the camera but that's a minor detail that ftp will fixI simply use raspistill specified with an 800x600 image size, and use Imagemagicks 'convert' command to add the text overlay. It is 4 lines of code including the upload to the server via scp.
Code: Select all
#! /bin/bash raspistill -o ~/photos/webcam.jpg -w 800 -h 600 sshpass -p 'secretpassword' scp ~/photos/webcam.jpg firstname.lastname@example.org:/var/www/webcam.jpg
