Re: RPi Cam Web Interface

Hi. I might have figured this out so thought I'd post my findings in case anyone else found them useful. By inspecting the elements of the page in Google Chrome i spotted the command sent over the network when I clicked the button on the interface. http://192.168.1.20/html/cmd_pipe.php?cmd=md%201 -...

Re: RPi Cam Web Interface

Hi. I have a python script monitoring people coming and going from my house (checking for mobile phones on the network with nmap). If everyone is out I would like it to activate the "motion detection start" capability of RPi Cam Web Interface. Is it possible to do this via a script (python or otherw...

Re: Interfacing to current house alarm for PIR triggers

Most PIR detectors have built in 433 MHz radio transmitters, that send a bit pattern (100% AM modulated) that can be received and decoded by a specialised chip. This provides a simple on/off output. Hi. Sorry for replying to this 3 years later.. I am trying to interface with an alarm system (Respon...

Re: IP Camera instead of RPICam?

Hello. I used RPi Cam Web Interface throughout spring for some birdbox action. It worked flawlessly for me and the FPS and quality was excellent. Is there any way for me to use the same setup and interface but link with an IP Camera on the network instead? Thanks for any pointers. I have tried searc...

Re: Moved installation file Motion not working

[ If you are getting a cam.jpg with that url in the browser and motion is using the same url then file / folder permissions are not the issue. The only thing that would stop motion getting the data it needs then would be if you had put any user / password on the web site and not included that in mo...

Re: the birdbox project and rain...

Hi. All sorted and it seems to be running smoothly. I screwed everything into the lid to make sure nothing comes loose. The "funnel" pokes up through a hole in the soffit and the Pi is sitting inside the eaves with the power and ethernet connections. Hopefully nothing goes wrong. The only worry I ha...

Re: the birdbox project and rain...

hi. I'm really grateful for your comprehensive replies. thank you. I now have a new idea which is less destructive. I can pop the pi above the soffit and drop the camera and LEDs down into the protected top of the box (under the eaves). I'll let you know how i get on. Thank you again :) Don p.s. yes...
