Wireless Camera with Arduino and the Adafruit CC3000 breakout board

Adafruit 2169

Wireless Camera with Arduino and the Adafruit CC3000 breakout board.

One nice thing to have in any home automation or alarm system is a camera to see what’s going on remotely. Of course, such solutions already exists, and you even have WiFi cameras that you can buy for under $50. But they are not open-source, and therefore it is difficult to have the control on what’s going on, or to customize the interface. In 2012, a nice tutorial was published on how to build such a connected camera. You can find the tutorial here. We will do something different in this article: we will use the CC3000 WiFi chip and the Arduino platform, along with a serial camera, to build you own wireless camera. You will learn how to take still pictures from your home and display them on your computer remotely. Let’s dive in!


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
