A privacy-focused, intelligent security camera system.

Overview

Self-Hosted Home Security Camera System

A privacy-focused, intelligent security camera system.

Features:

  • Multi-camera support w/ minimal configuration. Supports USB cameras and the Raspberry Pi camera module.
  • Motion detection that automatically saves videos and lets you view them in the web app.
  • Encrypted in transit, both from the cameras to the server and the server to your browser.
  • Self-Hosted
  • Free and Open Source

Example screenshots

Setting up the server

Docker:

  1. Clone this repository
  2. Generate SSL certificates: ./create-certs.sh. Alternatively, you may place your own certs in the certs dir
  3. Build and run the docker containers: API_URL=<server-hostname:server-port> docker-compose up -d --build. For example, if the API was running on the host sec-cam-server and port 8444, you should use API_URL=sec-cam-server:8444

Adding a camera

Installation:

NOTE: These instructions assume you are deploying to a raspberry pi running Raspbian OS.

  1. Install the python3-opencv package and dependencies: sudo apt-get install python3-opencv libatlas-base-dev
  2. Clone this repository
  3. Install the package: cd backend && python3 -m pip install .[streamer]. If you are using the Raspberry Pi camera module, run cd backend && python3 -m pip install .[streamer,picam].
  4. Update --server_url in run.sh to point at the host you deployed the server to.
  5. In the Web UI, you should see live video from that camera.
Issues
  • CORS error with self-signed certificates

    CORS error with self-signed certificates

    Some browsers like Firefox don't like cross-origin requests to URLs using self-signed certs even if you've already trusted certificate on the UI.

    Workaround:

    In the browser you're using, load an API endpoint (something like https://:8444/rooms) and go through the "this certificate can't be trusted" warning. Then, go back to the UI and refresh the page and see if its fixed.

  • Fix CORS issue with self-signed certificates

    Fix CORS issue with self-signed certificates

    Changes:
    • Updates Flask server to serve React app.
    • Removes unused nginx config
    • Moves frontend container to an intermediate container in server
    • Updates default server port for both the UI and API to 8443
    Testing:
    • Check out this branch
    • Generate new (untrusted) certs: ./create-certs.sh
    • Start the server: docker-compose up -d --build
    • Open the Web UI in Firefox at https://localhost:8443. After clicking through the certificate warnings, open the debug console and verify there are no CORS errors.
    • Navigate to the videos page: https://localhost:8443/videos. Verify the videos load correctly and that there are no CORS errors in the debug console.

    Closes #16

    Make motion detection threshold configurable

    Currently, the background subtraction threshold for motion detection is an optional input to the Motion Detection class, but is not configurable without modifying the software. This should be updated to be configurable, ideally on a per-camera basis.

  • Make recorded video format platform agnostic

    Make recorded video format platform agnostic

    We currently save videos in the .webm format. Apple platforms recently dropped support for this, and it seems to be causing issues in the latest Firefox release.

    Need to identify a platform agnostic format that will work across platforms/browsers and start saving videos in that format.
