I would get a new keyboard first, as yours seems to be faulty.Mitesh wrote:Hi All,
I was planning to make security surveillance camera system for my home.But i came to knw that each camera module with raspi will cost 100 $ .Whereas in 100 $ local survelliance sytem will setup 6 cameras at my place ... so it seems survelliance is quite costly with raspi...
But is there any way to use one raspi connect it to multiple cameras via wifi nd provide feed to display nd internet? Nd can one raspi transfer feed to another raspi ? Pls help nd shed sme light on this topic both cost wise nd feasibility wise
Sure, six cameras all set up for just $100, but that's for the install, he forgot about the $59.99 a month for "monitoring".asandford wrote:If you can find "100 $ local survelliance sytem will setup 6 cameras at my place"
It really depends what features you need and what you compare it to. Compared to IP cameras Pi can be cost competitive. An 8Mpixel IP camera will cost more than a Pi + PiCam. But Pi can't compete on price with cheap DVRs and low resolution composite cameras.Mitesh wrote:I agree with u PiGraham . After researching more i understood. Raspi is a mini computer u cant just use a computer to do one task like watch surroundings. It has to be assigned different other task like weather detection/Bird alarm/Image Mapping etc etc ,Then only we can get Value of money we invest .
Yes, as long as...Mitesh wrote:...is there any way to use one raspi connect it to multiple cameras via wifi nd provide feed to display nd internet?
Yes.Mitesh wrote:...can one raspi transfer feed to another raspi ?
I have a Pi3B at the shop running 24x7 for more than a month now. Attached to it are two A4Tech PK-910H webcams.Mitesh wrote:Pls help nd shed sme light on this topic both cost wise nd feasibility wise
I edited my previous post to include the link to MotionEyeOS. Using your favorite search site to look for "MotionEyeOS" also works.Mitesh wrote:Can u provide me some links pls
The official power supplies that came with my Pi2B/3B.Mitesh wrote:1) How do u power your ras pi's
The webcam cables are about 1.5 meters long. You can buy USB extension cords if you want to lengthen the distance, although it's generally not advised. You'll risk introducing interference, lost video feed, etc. I'd rather you stick to IP cams and configure MotionEyeOS to capture the video stream via HTTP (assuming the IP cams provide streaming URLs). I don't own an IP cam, so can't verify for you.Mitesh wrote:2) How did you connect to USBwebcams to raspi ? , the wires required might be long or did u do it wireless usb webcam
The MotionEyeOS project site has complete information: different set-up scenarios, installing, configuring, et al. Lots to learn if you explore the site.Mitesh wrote:Can u help me pls as i am learning and i am deseperate to do something useful using ras pi
That's why I chose to use the RPi + [dumb] webcams + MotionEyeOS route instead of purchasing a standalone network cam (which already has the software embedded in it). As I mentioned earlier, "...I prefer flexibility and control as far as hardware and software is concerned."Bootsofescaping wrote:Another thing is that lots of pre built camerasystems are riddled with security problems that are impossible for a normal user to fix.
You can use cheap power over Ethernet adaptors to feed power over a wired network connection, but that will still add significant cost per camera (TPLink £14 IIRC). You can also feed power over a composite video coax cable.Mitesh wrote:Ok thank u gavinmc .. i have just two concerns now
1) i need to provide wired power adapters to ras pi ... is there any way to avoid this wired power supply
2) usb cams will be wired .. is there any way to avoid wires nd fit cameras far way (25 mtrs) from each other
I just realized, an RPi + accessories (case, PS, µSD) + cam module/USB webcam + MotionEyeOS = MEyeOS IP camPilosopong Tasyo wrote: I don't own an IP cam.
