Welcome to the Airlie Birdbox Camera

This is a little project I started to allow anyone to see my little bird box inhabitants go about their daily life. I setup my bird box with a small endoscope USB camera pointing down inside the box and a Raspberry Pi Camera pointing at the garden. I then connected the USB camera and Raspberry Pi camera to a Raspberry Pi v3 model B. Using a piece of software called ‘Motion’ by Kenneth Lavrsen which allowed me to turn my old Raspberry Pi into a live video server, thanks to Gus from pimylifeup.com for the install routine. A bit of port forwarding, HTML scripting and CSS tweaking and bish bash bosh here’s the Airlie Birdbox cam – enjoy, especially the bird poo ;-)
