When you re away from home, a whole host of things can happen. From the unthinkable like a break-in to wish-I-were-there moments like your toddler dancing to the radio, there s lots you can miss when you re not home. For a sense of security and ability to stay connected to your home, there s Nest Cam.
Nest Cam is a stand-alone IP camera that works over your home s internet connection to record footage and enable remote surveillance from your mobile device. Install one near the front door to record the comings and goings in your home, put one in the nursery as a baby monitor, or affix one to the refrigerator to watch your mischievous dog in the kitchen. Nest Cam can keep an eye on things when you re not around.
It is good news to hear that the Arduino IDE support was announced on the ESP8266 community forum , the source code can be found from . It is more than another Arduino board, but can be thought as a Arduino combined with a WIFI shield. With faster CPU speed and much smaller form of factor, most important the less than $10USD price is more attractive, you are worth to try although there are also some limitations. Setup is fairly simple with downloads for Linux, OS X, and Windows. More detail setup can be found from adafruit guide.
Now ArduCAM ports our camera libraries for ESP8266, you can use the ESP8266 module with ArduCAM modules to take high quality high resolution photos and save to SD card, or even to publish the photos to webpage. In this tutorial we will use ESP8266 arduino board to take photos and publish to webpage.
In this demo, we create a websocket server on the ESP8266 arduino borad. It connects to a user defined WIFI router by DHCP, then you can connect to this server via your web browser.
The connection between the ESP8266 board and ArduCAM mini is shown as the following picture and table.
Before running the demo sketch, you need to copy three libraries ArduCAM, UTFT4ArduCAM_SPI and ESP8266-Websocket to the Arduino libraries folder.
