For this project we created a security camera that can be used to monitor determined area. This is implemented with a BeagleBone Black and a PlayStation eye as the main components. We also have a manual operation mode as well as a live video feed that goes directly to a Blynk controller. Along side this we are also registering motion and sending a recording to a repo whenever this motion is registered. The use of this project is to wither manually or automatically monitor a defined area such as surveillance cameras are used in many places around the world today.

Executive Summary

Picture that summarizes the project.

For this project we created a security camera that can be used to monitor a determined area. This is implemented with a BeagleBone Black and a PlayStation eye as the main components. We also have a manual operation mode as well as a live video feed that goes directly to a Blynk controller. Alongside this, we are also registering motion and sending a recording to a repo whenever this motion is registered. The use of this project is to, whether manually or automatically, monitor a defined area similar to surveillance cameras that are used in many places around the world today. This could serve as a replacement to a Google Nest Camera(https://store.google.com/product/nest_cam_outdoor?gclid=CjwKCAiA_MPuBRB5EiwAHTTvMb3A4UzdK2UyQnRzqudefripDsK73L7J20r-08Z_Jn4a7763-2NOFRoCSEgQAvD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds) priced at about $199 while our solution is priced at the price of around $90 total.

Packaging

For packaging we decided to keep is very simple as the only device we have is the camera itself alongside the BeagleBone board. We did use a custom 3D printed housing to hold the camera in place with the servo.

Installation Instructions

Give step by step instructions on how to install your project.

  • Include your github path as a link like this to the read-only git site: https://github.com/MarkAYoder/gitLearn.
  • Be sure your README.md includes an up-to-date and clear description of your project so that someone who comes across you git repository can quickly learn what you did and how they can reproduce it.
  • Include a Makefile for your code if using C.
  • Include any additional packages installed via apt. Include install.sh and setup.sh files.
  • Include kernel mods.
  • If there is extra hardware needed, include links to where it can be obtained.

User Instructions

Once everything is installed, how do you use the program? Give details here, so if you have a long user manual, link to it here.

Highlights

Here is where you brag about what your project can do.

Include a YouTube demo the audio description.

Theory of Operation

Give a high-level overview of the structure of your software. Are you using GStreamer? Show a diagram of the pipeline. Are you running multiple tasks? Show what they do and how they interact. We are using javascript, so all of our code is event-based. When the program starts running, it first connects to Blynk, where it can be controlled from a smartphone. Using different options in the Blynk app, the program can be instructed to start or stop Motion, stream video, and send email notifications of motion detection via ifttt.

Work Breakdown

List the major tasks in your project and who did what.

Also list here what doesn't work yet and when you think it will be finished and who is finishing it.

Future Work

Suggest additional things that could be done with this project.

Conclusions

Give some concluding thoughts about the project. Suggest some future additions that could make it even more interesting.
