DIY Dashcam: Car Security Camera with a Raspberry Pi Zero W #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
From anti-theft to insurance claims, having a dash cam is a solid security feature. Here is a good set up from Technically Wizardry, who used it on their van-life build.
Dashcams (video cameras in cars) are a great security and safety feature. As with the rest of the vanlife IOT, I built my own DIY dashcam that has some unique features — like motion detection and automatic recording.
On its surface, this is a post about using the MotionEyeOS to create a security camera. However, it is also a segue into more advanced security concepts (like detecting humans+animals+faces, sending alerts, and more).
