IP Cameras ??CaimenTechChecks wrote:Hi, I've been looking into building a CCTV system, as our gate was set on fire, however I do not have a huge budget, and was looking into the PS3 eye cameras with the raspberry pi, it worked with one (using motioneye), however now that I have multiple, with all of the hardware IDs being mostly the same, I cannot use more than one, does anyone have a solution to this?
Does ZoneMinder differentiates the cameras ?? The PS3 Eye appears supported:CaimenTechChecks wrote:No they are USB 2.0 cameras, I've tried using both the inbuilt USB ports and a powered USB hub, when trying all 4, but for some reason motion pi cannot destinguish between each camera, regardless that in the root, when plugging each camera in each one has (video0, video1).

I also have trouble with the StartX command where my raspberry pi would glitch out, I've tried re-installing raspian, but still facing the same problems.
Would it be best for this setup if I switch to Ubuntu on the raspberry pi?
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install zoneminder

You can tie them all together and monitor them through a web browser or app.
