The roobycam is currently a fairly sketchy combination of:
The software captures one picture (
5 seconds of video (compressed to mpeg4)
every time motion is detected.
- an x10 wireless camera connected to
- the x10 VA11A USB video interface;
- software by
is doing the frame grabbing
- The software is set up so that change in 15% of the vision
field of the camera triggers the frame capture, so that Rooby moving around
will trigger the camera. However, any
noise that covers 15% or more of the frame also looks like motion.
So, during noisy times, every time the camera fucks up
frames are grabbed, and thus many of the saved frames are mostly
- SOMETHING is fairly unstable in the system, causing it to freeze up
after only a few hours, repeating the same picture over and over...not
sure if this is the s/w (why i have the eval version still), the
interface (my suspicion), or what.
