Anth's Computer Cave

Steam punk panning security camera

One of the current projects in the cave is this antique-look panning security camera for my home-automation system. It is built from a broken oscillating heater and an old smart phone, and controlled by a Raspberry Pi.

There are still a few things to do. I need to set up the end-stops so AAIMI Home Automation knows where the camera is pointing.

I also need to refine the way my programs are accessing the video feed.

Stay tuned for updates to this article as the project advances. I'll have full details for the build here soon, along with the code to run it all.
