I'd like to share how I build my camera using Raspberry Pi. I used a dummy camera and turned into a smart camera! The total cost is about £100 / 1000 SEK / $150 =)

I have also developed software to help use the Raspberry Camera for surveillance. Check out these blog posts for further information.


I found these parts on Amazon.co.uk.

  • Raspberry PI Starter Kit - Power, SD-card, Raspberry 512MB
  • USB Wifi Adapter
  • Byron - CS11D Dummy CCTV Camera Unit
