For this Hackweek, I want to focus on building a small application around Raspberry PI, motion-sensors and video capture.
It will use the motion sensor to trigger a clip recording (maybe a 10s clip) that will be uploaded to some kind of storage (probably Cloudinary).
I have many kinds of birds coming to my window for food and water. I wanted to have a way to be able to see them even when I'm not around and to be sure that I don't miss the fun :P
The initial idea was to build it around Node.js since JS is my primary programming language but this might be a good time to learn and use Python since it is meant to be used for this kind of things.
Goal for this Hackweek
Have a public repository with the application that can be used as a DIY starting point.
If the time allows:
- Create a public space to visualize the clips
- Use a pre-trained ML model to tag and categorize the birds species
All the code will be made available here https://github.com/en3sis/pi-watcher
- Logitech 720p webcam
