Today I have been experimenting with the Rasperry Pi camera board, and setting it up with a wireless connection as a motion detect surveillance camera with my Synology NAS surveillance module.
I used an excellent article by dozencrows here as the basis, and added the code to the wifi-ethernet router raspberry pi I discussed a couple of days ago. This has a fixed wifi address which is ideal as a server to send video to the Synology module, although it will equally work just for viewing by any computer on my local network with a suitable browser.
For now, here are some pictures showing the output from the completed project in the Synology module, and the camera itself. I’ll add a write up later.
