Re: Surveillance camera based on BuildRoot and Motion

Marvelous work! I'm a relative noob, but have successfully set up 2 RPi surveillance cameras. I have one model B with a wired connection and a MS webcam, and an A+ with the RPi camera module connected via wireless adapter. Both work well. The writeimage script was a bit of genius.
