housing for RaspberryPi as IP Cam

Postby benmen2000 » Fri May 10, 2019 11:52 am

I need an new IP cam for a broken one. Bought a cheap " Chinese " model.
I turned off all dyndns an peer to peer options, ...cam starts after a while requesting to some strange ip adresses. Mostly in China.
Inet was blocked for cam, but the requests are going very obtrusive. Cam was not able to work in a correct way after some hours.
Put cam to -> garbage

I had one RPi3 b+ "left" from trying something else, what was not working correctly after some days. (Nextcloud, now it works:)

Start using FreeCad ~early Sommer 2018. (LinuxMint64, FreeCad Daily 18.x)

Absolutly fantastic software! Thank's to all developer.

My First real "projekt" was a 2 part shower screen with 8mm ESG Glas and stainless steel, etc.
This IPcam is another smal "just for fun an learn FreeCad" project.
I nearly used only additive and subtractive primitives for this model.

The cam model is not perfekt at all. But it works ;) (mjpeg stream only, MotionEye OS)
I don't use sealings (only one), because it's undern an roof.
I don't use the RPI's wifi.
The middle part is an aluminium tube of 80 x 3 x 96 mm. Using the onboard wifi, won't work realy well, I think.
For that, an usb wifi adapter should be used an redesign the back part of the cam.
(I'll may do that on my second cam somewhen)
Parts are 3D printed using PLA and put some single-component clear lacquer on it.

I'll see this summer, if the "RPi Core"-temperature is still ok...
For now, it is.

Just for fun (useful) and to learn some more FreeCad stuff :) (using A2plus assembly)
(RPI model & Cam Model are step files from thingiverse.com)

Reagrds, Ben

Nice Fun Learn Project ;-)

Hmm, can the RasPi be fired with PowerOverIP?

I don't understand why you call it "Power over IP" when your link clearly says "Power over Ethernet".

Anyways, the answer is yes, the Raspberry Pi 3+ can be powered over Ethernet by using an additional module on top, which includes the necessary power converters and a fan. https://www.raspberrypi.org/products/poe-hat/

This is the official module, by the Rapsberry Foundation, and only works with the Pi 3B+, although I think in previous years some companies made unofficial modules as well.

Sorry,
yes, of corse, PoE = Power over Ethernet ;-)
