Over the years we have featured a number of professionally manufactured WiFi cameras, but if you have ever fancied building your own, now is the time.
An open source camera kit called the Internet of Things Camera allows you to build your very own WiFi camera using a Eye-Fi Wi-Fi SD card together with a few other components supplied by Adafruit.
The Adadruit kit consists of a TTL Serial JPEG camera together with a Ardunio parts. All of which can be found over on the Ladyada website.
Once built the tiny WiFi camera can be used to beam still images directly to you for viewing, and can even be used with motion detection software to enable you to setup a simple security camera. Although the site does recommend : “Do not use this as a security camera. This is not a security-grade device.”
All the parts you require to complete the build can be bought over on the AdaFruit website. Enjoy!Filed Under: Camera News, DIY Projects
