Raspberry Pi Camera Server

It’s so easy to set up a Raspberry Pi Camera Server because of RPi-Cam-Web-Interface. I’m using these materials;

  • Raspberry Pi Zero W with Jessie Lite
  • Raspberry Pi NoIR Camera Board, Version 2
  • Raspberry Pi Zero Camera Adapter (this is required because the camera port on the Raspberry Pi Zero is smaller compared to the camera port on the Raspberry Pi 2 or 3)

Here are the steps:

  1. Prepare a new Raspberry Pi with Raspbian
  2. Make sure it’s connected to a network and you can ping it from your computer
  3. Confirm that the camera is working, run this command you should see the live video for 6 seconds. If this works then proceed to the next step. Otherwise fix this first.
    raspistill -v -f -vf -t 6000
  4. Run these commands to install the RPi-Cam-Web-Interface:
    sudo apt-get update
    git clone https://github.com/silvanmelchior/RPi_Cam_Web_Interface.gitcd RPi_Cam_Web_Interface
    chmod u+x *.sh
    ./install.sh
  5. From your computer, go to http://192.168.0.10/html/ (IP is your Raspberry Pi’s IP)
  6. Voila!
