    Thanks for the reply. When you say “over the network”: what are you streaming with? Motion? mjpeg streamer? Else?

    Thanks

  • Product DEV-11868 | about 9 months ago

    Before I pay for this and put camera number 999 on the shelf of stuff that is not sufficient for my use: could someone please tell me what server software to use this with that allows streaming over http and that is the delay/frame rate achievable with this module? I am asking this, because with motion (with just streaming and scripts disabled) and a Microsoft camera I am getting around 5 seconds of delay that makes it not very useful for my project. I already replaced this idea with adding Loftek cameras next to them and doing the streaming from there, but who knows… if this is really working fine, then I might use my Raspberry for something other than using it as my Asterisk and DSL router/VPN box (for which this it is working really well, it is just the camera server that sucks with a 5s delay and frequent crashes)….

    thanks in advance

    Two Webcams?? Could anyone please who has this could try to hook 2 webcams up to this? I am able to run “motion” or “camserv” on the raspberry, but only with one camera and with a 5s lag (not suitable for location of moving objects - what I want with it). As soon as a second camera is attached, pretty much everything gets shaky. So can this support 2 webcams with USB bandwidth and processor/mem? (proc/mem, probably).

    Thanks in advance!

    Correct, they do not beep, but they show different resistance. I thought for a second that I got a dead keypad, but the other did the same thing. Works fine with an arduino :)

  • Product COM-08653 | about a year ago

    For those having problems, and not wanting to have many cable crossings: Using the arduino keypad tutorial (with the keypad library), you can do a straight connection from pin 2 on keypad, pin 12 on arduino, then the last pin (pin 7) on keypad would go to arduino pin 6. (2 ends are NC)..

    In this case the proper setup lines are: byte rowPins[ROWS] = { 11, 6, 7, 9 }; byte colPins[COLS] = { 10, 12, 8 };

    If you want to start on pin 2, you would shift by 4 pins (pin 6->2, 7->3 …. 12 -> 8) .. Hope this helps, spent the last 30 minutes mapping this out :)

    Hey you are lucky. Mine did not detect the battery (no light on “Battery Good”). When tried to charge (12V as manual states) it started to smoke (not sure what, around the barrel connector). Then I ran the diagnostic pde - 2 motors have zero torque and they barely spin on full speed. Then 1 fuse blew for no reason (free spin 75% speed, 7.2V input). I am back to my Trex dual from pololu, waiting for new motors from pololu too.

    Search the web for the file name and some robot sites will have it.

  • Product ROB-11056 | about 2 years ago

    2 of my motors are dead from the box. The controller (Dagu Wild Thumper controller) detects no battery, smoked when tried to charge and blew a fuse for no reason running the diagnostic test. PCB mounted and tightened bent)…

    Dead motors spin somewhat, but zero torque. Pololu has the motors for $20 each. Hope they are a little better.

    Seems like a cool product, but for me it has a huge problem: the camera is mounted on the board which then attaches to and Arduino ; this assembly is way too heavy for a fast pan or pan&tilt servo setup.

    If the camera used a separate tiny board with a cable to the shield (video, G, V+ ideally) I would get one right now. To pan/tilt this on a minimal bot is just too much of a pain.

  • Product SEN-09587 | about 3 years ago

    Alarm systems are normally closed circuits. If they were normally open you could cut a sensor cable and get away with it (circuit would never go high/closed).
    I guess that is the reason for the always HIGH state of the pin.
