Step-by-step guide how to build a surveillance camera with Raspberry PI (the hardwares cost ca. $100). I will tell you how to make a stable remote access and how to use with PC or with mobile devices.
You can learn Raspberry PI basics also.
I collected the known issues those have solutions. And I will add a new ones if the participants send me their detailed problem description.
How to and where from download Minibian (=Raspbian variant) and other required softwares. I will show you how to write a complete operation system to the micro SD card.
How to determine Raspberry PI IP address. How to connect to the Raspberry PI via SSH. Contains beginning todos (raspi-config, apt-get update and ugprade).
How to check connected web camera, how to edit text file (we will use mostly for configuration files) and how to install the camera handler program (it is called motion).
How to fine-tune motion and test your local-area network reachable camera
About port forwarding and test on your Windows PC - this is for remote access.

It includes a lot of suggestions and further development opportunities.
issues, symptoms and solutions before you connect to Raspberry PI. Refer to Lecture 4.
issues, symptoms and solutions after you connect to Raspberry PI. Refer to Lecture 5.
issues, symptoms and solutions related to motion Refer to Lecture 6-7.
issues, symptoms and solutions after you successfully config the webcamer in localhost Refer to Lecture 8.
I am an electical engineer, I work as a C# and PLC developer. I use Raspberry PI every day (for my hobby and for freelancer jobs).
I was dealing with a different type of embedded devices (like PLC, Raspberry PI, STM32Discovery board etc.) and made for different goal (home automation, HVAC controlling, for middleware applications). My favourite development area is the embedded webserver (remote controlling) and the home automation. I made a lot of interface between different systems (like between home automation and mobile services etc.)
