Raspberry Pi HD surveillance camera #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
Captain-Slow.dk demonstrates how to build your own Raspberry Pi HD surveillance camera:
In a earlier guide I showed how to get motion installed and running on a Raspberry Pi, here is what more you can do to make it look a lot more professional, still without adding too much extra value to it. (these extra things are totally worth it in my opinion. One of the most important things is of curse the pi itself plus the camera module. But after that it is a good house to put it in…Inside the house you will find a metal plate with a plastic piece, looking a bit like a camera. After removing that piece of plastic I drilled two holes and mounted the pi with two bolts, held apart from the metal plate by two 5mm nylon washers. To hold the camera I 3d printed a mount, but you can most likely be able to modify the dummy piece of plastic too to hold it instead…

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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
