If you are interested in learning more about setting up the MotionEye OS on the Raspberry Pi Zero, you’ll be pleased to know that over on the Hackster.io website BnBe Club has this week published a tutorial for beginners with full instructions on where to begin. motionEyeOS is a Linux distribution that turns a single-board computer into a video surveillance system and is available for free from GiHub.
“Having tested out the ESP32-CAM board in the previous videos, it is safe to say that the video quality is not exactly brilliant. It’s a compact and extremely cost-effective board that is also easy to use and this makes it perfect for beginners. But if you are looking to build an actual DIY home surveillance system then it wouldn’t be the best setup to go for. Using the motionEye OS with the Raspberry Pi board is the next popular thing around. In this post, we learn how to set it up, go over the features and options and I also end things by giving you my thoughts on the system and why I don’t think it’s a good enough solution.”
