PhotoFunia-106KB.jpg Our Pi 2 Home Security Camera TV Monitor

Contents:

Introduction:

We now have a second Raspberry Pi 2 now also running Ubuntu Pi MATE. We plan to use it as another exterior home security camera monitoring option for our home. We hooked it up to our TV so we can switch to it to monitor our home cameras around the property from our TV in addition to family PC browers. It a lso will be fun to watch the birds eat from some bird feeders and scratch in the ground under a camera.

Our 2nd Ri 2Our second RPi2

Progress:

  • LAN connected
  • Connected to remote control HDMI switcher.
  • Could not find any software for the RPi2 to use so we will just continue to use a browser as we already do on our other PC's.

We usually just catch nighborhood cats or company coming over on camera, but one evening this driveway camera recorded a family member who took an ambulance ride to the hospital. A false alarm, so all was ok. smile I hope false alarms and cats are the only exitment we ever catch.
