Does Pi3 can do security system

Thu May 26, 2016 9:51 am

Thx for read this,
I want do a small security system.
I read CSI-2 interface can support 4m long line,
And have 4 virtual channel,
But how to connect two camera by using Pi 3?
And If I want connect 10m long line,
Is any solution can do that?

Two cameras, two Pi's and ethernet cable.
Easier to do, even Zero's, A's can do it, B+ no problem.
Go to camera forum for at least 3 options of software.

People have done cameras on hdmi cables but 10M cable probably costs the same as another Pi.
Only the Compute modules can do two cameras.

Pi3's have WiFi so maybe no Ethernet cable needed.
Probably only a few have done this, working Pi3 + WiFi/BLE and camera is very new.
