A few weeks ago a need arose for a new security system. This would be a video recording system triggered by movement. There are many systems on the market but this was to be a cheap option and Raspberry Pi’s are fun.
So a $35 Raspberry Pi 3B+ from CanaKit it is. With the Pi Camera v2.1 and a couple of cheap Logitec USC Web Cameras that were lying around.
Raspbian went in easy and then Kerberos.io went in on top. A few modifications to the config for kerberos.io to support three cameras and a change to the service startup to check for the presence of the cameras and then start the service. Now whenever a movement event is caught and the video recorded, an email is sent to me with links and a still image.
