Hi! I wish to build a "surveillance camera", or just a camera, for our rear yard, which may either be triggered by motion (moving animals) or just always on, or on optionally at night or during the day to monitor the movement and growth of our garden! I think this is a really cool idea, so obviously Raspberry Pi will be able to handle it. I would also be interested in constructing time-lapse videos down the line so any guidance on tutorials for this would be hugely appreciated.
I am starting off at https://github.com/ccrisan/motioneyeos/ ... stallation and thinking of appropriating the security camera software. It's not fit-for-purpose, but it might be the closest thing out there? I haven't done too much digging yet. If anyone knows of anyone else who has done this already feel free to let me know!
The problem I have with motioneyeos is that it is an OS, and I would like to maintain Raspbian on the Pi (so, dual boot). I'm not familiar with how to adjust disk partitions on the Pi to allow for dual booting. Are there any guides out there you recommend on how to do this? I used linux in grad school briefly and remember it was really simple to do on a laptop.
Thank you for your time!
