Raspberry Pi Smart Camera | App 1 - DIY Tutorial

Dec 03, 2020

Today we are going to build our own real-time AI surveillance camera using a raspberry Pi and the OpenCV AI kit. We will adapt this system to detect any object, like packages on your doorstop, with Roboflow. This Raspberry Pi CCTV camera will be able detect a person using a MobileNet SSD at an astonishing 30 FPS as well as sound an Alarm to stop any impending theft.

The Problem that we are trying to solve is, that there are not much real time raspberry pi CCTV camera solutions online and if they are real-time, then the processing is not an embedded solution, its done on a server, PC or cloud.

Another option is to use something like a Neural Compute Stick or Google Coral, which is great but their form factors are slightly bulky especially when we are trying to minimize our security camera size.

Instead we are going to try using the OpenCV AI Kit attached to almost any raspberry pi even a raspberry pi zero for a small footprint surveillance camera. So let's get straight into it!
