  • Raspberry Pi 3 Motion Detection Camera With Live Feed

    Hi gaurangdoshi, For your first question, the instructable was designed to account for dynamic IP changes, so I would recommend looking at the code in that section to begin. In that section, the code only emails you the IP address at boot, so I think you would want to look for a line of code that automates the email process to occur every few hours. There also may be a line somewhere that would be able to run the code to email your IP address every time it changes. For your second question, I don't think PIR is currently compatible with Motion, so you may want to look elsewhere for a solution to that problem. Best of luck to you!

    Hi AirplaneF,I'm not entirely sure how to answer your question. The first thing I would say to someone who is trying to use this system outdoors is that you should take care to make the system element/animal proof. Unfortunately, I am the wrong person to advise you on how to go about this.If you're worried about the functionality of the system, I'll say this: to function, the system only requires a power source, either from an outlet or a USB battery pack. If you want the live feed/ email functionality to work, you'll also need to be in close enough proximity to your WiFi router, but you could, if you want, put the system out of range and then manually collect the Pi and obtain the footage by accessing the Raspberry Pi's memory.Using this system in your garden is possible! Just be prepa...

Just be prepared to protect your hardware. Good luck with your project, and I invite you to post pictures or instructions on how you end up implementing this into your garden!

    Hi I2cps,Yes, that code is to wait for the network connection. When designing this project, we ran into issues with our WiFi network, specifically because it used a dynamic IP address, and used this workaround to make sure our Pi waited and connected to the network before proceeding. I like your solution too!

    Just to update you all, this was an undergraduate project working primarily with a school WiFi system that does not support static IP addresses (my Pi is not guaranteed a fixed IP address). This means that some of my workarounds are specific to dynamic IP addresses, so while they shouldn't interfere, they are not required for home WiFi networks. Thank you for your support, and I will continue to try to address the questions you have!

    Yes! Though if you use non-gmail addresses be sure to look up the proper STMP for your email service, otherwise the code will be trying to pull from the wrong email server. Good luck!
