Join David Ross for an in-depth discussion in this video Access the camera's pictures remotely with an FTP client, part of Raspberry Pi: Home Monitoring and Control.
- Okay, at this point, we've created our pictures,…and what we want to do is transfer those pictures to…a remote computer.…So, what I've done is I've logged in here to weave.com,…and we're going to use SSH as I mentioned before.…So, we're just going to click on that.…And it's going to give us information that we're going…to use to actually put into our FTP client.…So, I'm just going to grab this part here, and I'm going…to Copy it.…And then, I'm going to switch over to an FTP client…for the Mac called Cyberduck.…Now, Cyberduck itself, it's very easy to set up.…
Once you've got it there, you just say Bookmark,…New Bookmark.…And what we want to do is put in that we're going to use…Secure FTP.…And for a name, we can call it Raspberry PI.…And for our server is the actual proxy number.…And then, we're going to go back, and we're going to…grab the port number from here.…We're going to Copy that with Command + C.…Then, what we're going to do once we get back to Cyberduck…is we're just going to Paste it into here.…And once we've done that, we just move this over…
This DIY electronics project provides simple directions for getting your home monitoring system up and running. Author David Ross helps you select a power supply, camera, motion detector, enclosure, and other components and accessories, and make your system "smart" by connecting to web services frameworks such as Weaved and WebIOPi. Then he helps you program the logic to make your Pi camera take pictures and stream video, connect to home peripherals, and mount your alarm system. With this training, and a little elbow grease, you can create a fully autonomous system that helps you and your family feel more secure at home and away.
Note: These instructions work with Raspberry Pi B, Raspberry Pi B+, and Raspberry Pi 2 models.
- Selecting hardware, including a Raspberry Pi camera and a Pi Cobbler
- Configuring VNC, SSH, and WebIOPi services
- Sending SMS messages with the Raspberry Pi
- Taking and accessing pictures remotely
- Setting up video streaming with a Raspberry Pi camera
- Connecting the Pi to the development board
- Connecting the relay and motion detector
- Programming the alarm in Python
- Mounting and securing the alarm system
