Docker Image for Low-cost HD surveillance Camera Module on Raspberry Pi 3

This runs a motion-detecting camera connected to a Raspberry Pi. The videos are saved into a folder on the host machine (i.e. outside of the Docker container), and can be streamed over the network too.

Pre-requisite:

Hardware

  • Raspberry Pi 3 ( You can order it from Amazon in case you are in India for 2590 INR)
  • Micro-SD card reader ( I got it from here )
  • Any Windows/Linux/MacOS
  • HDMI cable ( I used the HDMI cable of my plasma TV)
  • Internet Connectivity(WiFi/Broadband/Tethering using Mobile) – to download Docker 18.09.0 package
  • Keyboard & mouse connected to Pi’s USB ports

Software

  • SDFormatter - to Format SD card
  • Win32DiskImager - To Flash Raspbian OS onto SD card

Steps to Install Docker 18.09.0 on Pi Box

  • Format the microSD card using SD Formatter as shown below:
  • Download Raspbian OS from here and use Win32 imager(in case you are on Windows OS  running on your laptop) to burn it on microSD card.

  • Insert the microSD card into your Pi box. Now connect the HDMI cable  from one end of Pi’s HDMI slot to your TV or display unit and mobile charger(recommended 5.1V@1.5A)
  • Let the Raspbian OS boot up on your Pi box. It takes hardly 2 minutes for OS to come up.

  • Configure WiFi via GUI. All you need is to input the right password for your WiFi.

  • The default username is "pi" and password is "raspberry". You can use this credentials to login into the Pi system.

  • You can use "FindPI" Android application to search for IP address if you don't want to look out for Keyboard or mouse to search for the right IP address.

Enable SSH to perform remote login

To login via your laptop, you need to allow SSH service running. You can verify IP address command via ifconfig command.

If you would like to use Docker as a non-root user, you should now consider
adding your user to the "docker" group with something like:

  sudo usermod -aG docker your-user

Remember that you will have to log out and back in for this to take effect!

WARNING: Adding a user to the "docker" group will grant the ability to run
         containers which can be used to obtain root privileges on the
         docker host.
         Refer to https://docs.docker.com/engine/security/security/#docker-daemon-attack-surface
         for more information.

Building CCTV Cam Docker Image

docker build . -t collabnix/docker-cctv-raspbi

Bringing up Docker Container

Before you execute run.sh script, you will need the camera module driver by running the below script:

sudo modprobe bcm2835-v4l2

Run the below command to bring up Docker container

./run.sh

This will connect to a webcam via /dev/video0, create and mount the video directory in a directory called videos within the current cdirectory, and start running as a daemon.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
