Got the Picamera working again to detect a banana thief. I want to use it with the Pibrella and a motion sensor eventually so that I can detect the thief’s movement and sound a warning.
My picture of the screen isn’t too good. I needed someone else to be the banana thief really.
I used the same Python commands as previously. I love the way you can get it to capture and save a still photo as a jpeg. Unfortunately I can’t connect my Pi to the Internet yet so I cannot transfer the photos directly here but have to snap them with my phone. I expect I could put the Pi SD card into the PC but whether it would locate the jpegs I’m not sure. I haven’t got the Linux operating system anywhere except on my Pi.
Don’t forget to close down your camera properly at the end of your code. In Python use:
That’s all for today folks. Happy Raspberry Pi-ing!
