EE-blinker for Eagle Eye Networks Poll Stream

This is a Node.js client that follows the Eagle Eye Networks API. It listens for new motion events and then toggles an LED. This is the basis for our real-time feed.

Lifecycle of the app

The following steps need to be performed in order, but any call can be made once user is logged-in.

  • Login (step 1)
  • Login (step 2)
  • Current user's information is returned by Login (step 2)
  • Get device list
  • Subscribe to poll stream
  • Get subsequent events from poll stream



Checkout out the facedetection branch if you want to try something different with the previews. It will show the image in grayscale if it doesn't detect a face. Not really useful, but interesting example of using node-opencv


Edit config.js and replace 'your_username', 'your_password', and 'your_api_key' with your username, password, and api key.

    module.exports = {
        // credentials for the app to use
        'username': 'your_username',
        'password': 'your_password',
        'api_key': 'your_api_key',

        // if you only want a subset of the cameras, put the ESNs here,
        // empty means show all
        'filter_cameras': [

        // what serial port should be connect to
        'serial_port': '/dev/cu.usbmodem14101',

        // where to save the auth file
        'path_to_saved_cookie': './cookie'

You can’t perform that action at this time.
