|Smart CCTV||Live Pi Camera Stream||Face Recognition|
- Minimum Raspberry Pi 4, 2GB is recommended for optimal Face recognition performance
- OpenCV face-recognition
- Raspberry Pi 4 Camera Module or Pi HQ Camera Module (Newer version)
- Python 3 recommended.
Step 1 – Install dLib Library & Face recognition Library
You can find more details on the updated Pi 4 compatible installation notes on Smartbuilds.io:
Step 2 – Cloning SmartCCTV
Open up terminal and clone the SmartCCTV repo:
bash cd /home/pi git clone https://github.com/EbenKouao/SmartCCTV-Camera
Step 3 – Launch Web Stream
Pre-requisite: Ageitgey Face_recognition Library is installed:
Note: Creating an Autostart of the main.py script is recommended to keep the stream running on bootup.
sudo python3 /home/pi/SmartCCTV-Camera/main.py
You could test a successful installation by running the Python script: facerec_from_webcam_faster.py From here you could program to add multiple profiles. We encourage contribution to this project.
