Raspberry Pi-based Home Cam Kit
- Release on:2019-05-28
HKCam needs a Raspberry Pi Zero W with a power supply, the official Raspberry Pi camera module, a microSD card, and the 3D printed housing.
If you don’t have a 3D printer, the HKCam’s developer, Matt Hochgatterer, will print an enclosure for a small fee.
The HKCam enclosure
The whole assembly snaps together and then will be accessible through the iOS Home app.
Hochgatterer provides a near ready-to-go Raspbian disk image to write to the SD card that runs a modified version of HomeBridge.
The 3D printed enclosure will prop the camera up or allow it to be mounted to a wall.
Hochgatterer is the developer behind the Home 3 iOS app.
Hochgatterer has laid out all the steps on his website and accompanying Github page to get users up and running quickly after obtaining the parts.
