If your wanting to something a bit more simple you could just have a web cam that can be access from anywhere with an internet connection, which is what you will end up with at the end of this guide.
You could also look at an external power back and Wi Fi if you want to make it mobile, a few people have put these in a garden or somewhere without a static power/network source.
As the name suggests it will also track and trigger events on motion detected in the video frames (more on that later).
So now the software is on there it’s time to plug in the web cam and ensure that everything is working, ensuring that you plug it into the powered hub, and then into the PI.
Otherwise the webcam will not get enough power to turn on.
Located midway between Vancouver & Calgary we are just minutes off the Trans Canada Highway #1 in middle of the southern interior of British Columbia, a 45 minute drive east from the Kamloops, or a scenic 2 hour drive north from Kelowna International Airport.
Cultural activities are now available for browsing and reservation directly from our web site.
