There is nothing in the camera software that has any time limit or screen dependency and all my camera run headless. Some have been running for over a year continuously (except for a few software updates).lohtse wrote:I have hit an issue with this software..
if I run the software longer than 10mins I can nolonger access it and control the camera... It is as thought a screen saver has activated and locked the device..
I intend to use the software without a screen and remote login but if the 10min thing can not be bi passed I will have a major issue..
The issue occurs on are Pi3s x2, Zeros x2 and our Pi B and B+ all are on the latest updated(via sudo update etc) firmware/OS
hope someone can shed some light on this..
What do you mean by no remote login? SSH would still normally be accessible in a headless unit.
Is the 10 minute fairly predictable and does all access to the Pis go after this interval? If so then I would suspect something funny happening on the networking side. Are you using wifi or wired connections? If wifi then some wifi dongles can cause time out problems unless power save options are turned off.
I would check the scheduler log to see if there is any unusual events leading up to the problem.
Also be sure that any USB cables used to feed power in are low resistance. The extra power taken by the camera can sometimes lead to extra voltage drop in these leading to instability.
