  • If you don't want to use the website, just remove all uploadCSV() and UploadImage() function calls from the main loop.
  • If you want to get the timelapse video, download, create, and run on your local machine. Or upload them to a server and add to a cronjob, so the video will get updated automatically.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
