This site says it already has a camera on it ?
Did this idea get ditched at some point ?
You can pick up a HD web cam for something like £7 in the uk and this board
should be $35 = £23 ish so for £30 a HD IP camera!! That is way way cheaper
than anything else on the market. It will need a box of course but then you
have options for external or internal type uses. I know the developers are
thinking about it but if they offer POE in the next version then this increases
the WOW factor for security cam uses.
I've got a system running at the moment on zoneminder and foscams and find
both the foscam or zoneminder movement detection difficult to get right. I normally
end up with a disk full of shadows and sun movement or nothing even if someone
walks past. For this reason I'm learning about Linux / python etc and
triggering ZM from PIRs. It is unclear at the moment how you would access the
digital I/O on the R-PI but if it's not that difficult then a PIR can be
connected to the cameras as well and via the Ethernet send triggers direct to
ZM. Perfect all in one box. At present my foscams email a snap shot when they
detect movement and as I'm just learning python I don't know how hard this
would be to do on the R-PI but I'm guessing it should be quite do able. I think
for a multi cam system you will need a Linux box somewhere running the ZM or
other view software with a few MB's of memory and a large HDD. Are there any
updates on when these will be for sale?
I take my hat off to the developers of this I hope they will go down in
history as per the Sinclair and commodore.
Maybe even get it down to $15 if the world goes mad and orders millions
of them J.
