A surveillance system based on Raspberry Pi
Surveillance system based on Raspberry Pi.
Pisurvl is a surveillance solution with motion detection and alert notifications. This repository contains the server part of the solution. It is implemented in Python and it uses OpenCV to access the camera of the Raspberry Pi. Despite being implemented on top of a Raspberry Pi, the solution should work on any system having a camera that is supported by OpenCV.
Currently there is no easy way to install OpenCV 3 on Linux. The following commands install all the necessary dependencies to build OpenCV 3:
sudo apt install build-essential cmake git pkg-config sudo apt install libgtk2.0-dev libavcodec-dev libavformat-dev libswscale-dev libv4l-dev sudo apt install libjpeg-dev libpng-dev libtiff-dev libjasper-dev libdc1394-22-dev sudo apt install libatlas-base-dev gfortran liblapacke-dev sudo apt install python3 python3-dev python3-setuptools sudo easy_install3 pip
The following command installs the latest version of Numpy. The installation may take a while to complete.
sudo pip3 install numpy
The following commands download and compile OpenCV 3:
mkdir build-opencv && cd build-opencv git clone https://github.com/opencv/opencv.git git clone https://github.com/opencv/opencv_contrib.git cd opencv_contrib && git checkout 3.2.0 && cd .. cd opencv && git checkout 3.2.0 mkdir build && cd build cmake -D CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release \ -D CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr/local \ -D OPENCV_EXTRA_MODULES_PATH=`pwd`/../../opencv_contrib/modules \ .. make -j4
Then install OpenCV:
sudo make install
sudo pip3 install --upgrade pisurvl git clone https://github.com/betabandido/pisurvl.git sudo cp pisurvl/init/pisurvl.service /etc/systemd/system sudo systemctl enable pisurvl.service
Create a settings file based on the provided template:
mkdir -p ~/.pisurvl cp pisurvl/template-settings.yaml ~/.pisurvl/settings.yaml
Fill in the fields from and to in the notifications section.
Use Google API Manager to generate some client credentials and download the client_secrets.json file. Then move the file into the PiSurvl configuration folder:
mv client_secrets.json ~/.pisurvl
Execute pisurvl-server to authorize PiSurvl to access Google Drive.
Use systemctl to start the service:
sudo systemctl start pisurvl.service
To upload a new release to PyPI follow the next steps:
- Bump version in setup.py
- Run python3 setup.py sdist upload
Download the file for your platform. If you're not sure which to choose, learn more about installing packages.
