The RaspberrIPCam is an Open Source project that aims to provide a modern and reliable solution for anyone wants to secure it’s home or work and at a very low price compared to what you can find on the market.
I started this project because no other solutions based on Raspivid and vlc streamer convinced me in FPS and because I prefer to master all the chain.
Performances are just great, because it allow streaming a FULL HD (1080p) video stream at 30fps without latency (latency involved is mostly due to the player).
Currently it does the basic task of a CCTV IP Camera : stream over the network a live H.264 encoded video over RTSP protocol which is the standard protocol for video streaming in security applications. It will be improved by a Record Manager, and external trigger handler (PIR Sensor, door sensor, …) and a web sever for configuration.
This article show you how to encapsulate your own Raspberry in a camera housing and build the software to do this.

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.
