Raspberry Pi cameras can be purchased for a few hundred dollars, but many have been stolen before.
Here’s how to fix the damage and get a working camera system.
Raspberry Pi Camera Installation and Safety Camera SystemFirst, the camera system should be properly installed on the Pi.
The Raspberry Pi Camera Board is sold with a built-in HDMI cable and two USB ports, and the Pi Camera Boards Raspberry Pi camera board is also available with a separate HDMI cable, so you don’t need to buy any additional cables.
The Raspberry Pi Pi Camera board comes with a few different parts, including the camera module, a HDMI cable that goes to the Raspberry Pi, a USB connection, and a camera sensor module.
The camera module is located on the front of the board, and can be connected to any HDMI-enabled camera with an HDMI cable.
The Pi Camera sensor module is placed on the back of the Raspberry, and connects to any USB camera with a HDMI connection.
For this tutorial, we’ll be using the RaspberryPi Camera Board and a USB camera connected to the HDMI cable on the camera.
First, open up the RaspberryPiwi.cfg file, which is located in the root directory of your SD card.
In this example, we’re using the root file as the default configuration.
Open up the config file and add the following lines to the end of the file:To get the Raspberry PI to connect to the camera, we need to add a camera to the Camera Module section of the configuration.
In the example below, we’ve added the Raspberry camera to this section, and added the camera to our RaspberryPiCameraConfiguration.php file.
Next, we can open the config.php in a text editor, and add a section for the camera as follows:Finally, we should add a “Configure Camera” section that contains a “Configuration” section.
The configuration section of a configuration file should contain a “Camera Module” section, a “Sensor Module”, and “Camera Image” section sections.
If you don the camera configuration, you’ll need to modify the image configuration section to add an image sensor module and a sensor image module.
In the example above, the RaspberrypiCameraConfiguration file also contains a file called “CameraConfig.php”, which contains the configuration of the camera and the image sensor.
Open up the camera config.html file, and edit the “Image Configuration” section to read:Finally we need a section called “Capture Configuration”, and the configuration for the RaspberryCameraConfig file.
Open that up in a different text editor and add:We can add an “Image Image” and “Sensor Image” sections to the Capture Configuration section.
Add the following section:Finally add a new section called the “Capture Video Configuration”, as shown below:In the above example, you can see that we’ve included a section with a camera, an image, and an image capture configuration, as well as a section that displays the image captured on the Raspberry.
Finally, you need to change the “Camera Configuration” to “Camera Capture” and the “Sensor Capture” to the “Pi Camera” configuration.
Add:Next, you should add the “Display Configuration” as shown above.
Add a new “Configuration for Display” section as shown:And, finally, add a third section called a “Capture Image”.
Add the “Configuring the Capture Image” option as shown.
The “Capture Camera” and/or “Sensor Camera” sections should be empty.
Now, you’re all set to configure your camera and your RaspberryPi.
Open the cameraConfig.html, and change the camera image configuration to read as follows in the imageConfiguration section:Next we need another “Capture” section for capturing images, as shown in the following image configuration:Finally you should update the “Configuration and Configuration Files” section of your RaspberryPiyCameraConfiguration and set the “Sensors” section so that it contains an image and a photo sensor module, and set a camera image to “True” in the “True Camera” field.
Open that up, and we can add a photo capture configuration section as follows, as highlighted below:Now that we have our Raspberry Pi set up to use the camera for video recording, we will need to configure the RaspberryPICameraConfiguration to record images.
Open our RaspberryPiCameraConfiguration, and modify the cameraCameraConfiguration section as you did for the cameras image and sensor sections.
Add another camera section as well, as seen in the previous image configuration.
We’ve added an image “Capture Photo” section:Open the “Video Configuration” and add “Capture Capture” as you see in the first image configuration, and update the Camera Capture section as seen below.
Now that our camera has captured a video, we have the Raspberry’s camera recording software working with the Raspberry Camera Camera.
Open your RaspberryCameraConfiguration for the second image configuration as shown, and adjust the Camera
