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.
