Hi, I am
As I had mentioned in how to host multiple websites from home, a typical network architecture looks like the following:
In such a case, we will need our router to hold a public IP address and perform port forwarding for our home servers.
However, there can be cases where we do not have the environment to put our server on the internet.
In such a situation, you will find ngrok useful. Since ngrok accepts traffic on a public address and relays that traffic through to the ngrok process running on your machine, you can put your server on the internet easily.
Given that, let's look at how you can put your Raspberry Pi server on the internet with ngrok.
When you want to turn your unused Raspberry Pi into a security camera, you can take a look at motionEyeOS.
So what is motionEyeOS? In short, motionEyeOS is a Linux distribution that turns your single board computer into a video surveillance system. Therefore, it is convenient to setup a Raspberry Pi security camera with motionEyeOS.
Given these points, let us look at how we can setup a Raspberry Pi security camera with motionEyeOS.
After connecting my iPhone to my Samsung Smart TV via Chromecast, I accidentally powered off my TV with the remote.
Since the YouTube app was playing when I accidentally switched off my TV with the remote, something got screwed. When I switched on my TV again and launch the YouTube app again, a black screen showed up perpetually.
In order to have a reference in the future, I document the steps that I took to fix the issue.
Even though a Raspberry Pi security camera is not the cheapest surveillance camera, it can be worthwhile building one.
Especially for Raspberry Pi fans, you may have several unused Raspberry Pis because you buy one for each release. In such a case, a big part of your Raspberry Pi security camera is sunken cost.
Given that, let's look at how we can setup a Raspberry Pi security camera with Raspbian Buster Lite and motionEye.
When I wrote about setting up MicroPython on an ESP development board, I came across the WebREPL.
If you setup MicroPython WebREPL on your ESP32 board, then you can interact with your ESP32 board wirelessly.
In case you need it, this is how to setup MicroPython WebREPL on your ESP32 development board.
