How I setup a CCTV camera with Raspberry Pi Zero W and MotionEyeOS image for home surveillance

When the Raspberry Pi Zero W was launched, I didn’t think twice before ordering one. Compared to the Raspberry Pi Zero, the Raspberry Pi Zero W comes with WiFi. This meant that I can use my new Raspberry Pi Zero W to replace my Raspberry Pi 3 CCTV camera for home surveillance and use the more powerful Raspberry Pi 3 for other projects.

This post documents how I setup my Raspberry Pi Zero W as a CCTV camera using the MotionEyeOS image.

How I setup Codiad web IDE on my Raspberry Pi 3

There are times when I get the urge to work on project source codes that reside on my Raspberry Pi 3 LEMP server while I am on the move. Setting up a web based IDE on my Raspberry Pi 3 is one way to enable me to code while I am on the move, so long as I have a device with a web browser that is connected to the internet. Since I had already setup a LEMP server to run WordPress on my Raspberry Pi 3 and that Codiad is written in PHP, Codiad is an ideal web based IDE that I can set up on my Raspberry Pi 3.

This post documents how I setup Codiad web IDE on my Raspberry Pi 3. To make this post complete, I had taken some of the steps mentioned in my other posts on Raspberry Pi and replicated it in this post.

How to prepare the operating system to run your Raspberry Pi, with your Windows machine

Recently, I had been deploying several pieces of Raspberry Pi around my house for different purposes. In order to use Raspberry Pi as a TV Box, a CCTV, a LEMP server or any other appliances, we will need to prepare an operating system in a microSD card to run our Raspberry Pi.

I always use my Windows machine to prepare the operating system for all my Raspberry Pis, since I find that it is easiest to write an operating system for Raspberry Pi on a Windows machine. This post documents how I would prepare the operating system to run my Raspberry Pi with my Windows machine.
