Yes that is what I want to do. The hardware part is easy for me it's how to get the pi to brows the web server on the NAS I can't find info on.That description is based around their own Raspberry Pi camera module, but I hope you will be able to see how to modify it to use the webcam provided by the NAS.
Right, I think we're homing in on this...CWatters wrote:it's how to get the pi to brows the web server on the NAS I can't find info on.
Yes that's right you just need to "touch" a url not browse it and analyse the page. I found some details here...Surely you won't need to 'browse' in the sense of looking at pages and making intelligent decisions about what to do next? My guess is that the server will have a particular weblink or url that you retrieve, or send a message to, in order to trigger recording?
Code: Select all
If I'm right then programming this sort of simple interaction is relatively simple using pre-written libraries or modules for the common languages you might want to use on your RPi including C, Python and Ruby. httplib2 for python is an example.
