Webcam With Servo And Web Interface

The purpose of this project is to show, how you can build a surveillance system with web-page interface. The webcam can be moved vertical or horizontal through the interface, but only in the area that border sensors will allow. The control page is secured with login system, where the user types in an user-name and a password.

On the control page the user can control how the webcam will turn and how many steps it will run. The user can also turn the webcam on and off via web interface. Information about the states will immediately update on the screen. User can also turn the motion detector online, if the camera detects motion, it will automatically save the frames. Naming of the pictures is done with “timestamps”, so it is possible to find out when the picture was taken.

The part that interests me on this project is the servo, because a few years ago i was thinking to something like this, but i never build it. Now it’s nice to see, someone actually build it.
