    https://github.com/trypromptly/LLMStack - started working on this as a wrapper over OpenAI's endpoints for another product and it gradually became this.

    Another project I worked on for my own use was a network isolated, lightweight video monitoring system. Around 5 years ago, I was looking to install a camera in our living room. I couldn't find anything I trusted that worked completely offline without some companion app pinging their servers. So I bought a basic IP camera on Amazon that supports rtsp and a raspberry pi. Created a fenced wifi network and added the camera to it.

    Had an FFmpeg process read camera stream on demand and write to local buffers. Wrote a simple python server to listen for incoming connections on a different interface and stream the video on API requests. Then built an android app that talks to the python server to stream video on demand.

    Also installed motion (https://github.com/Motion-Project/motion) on raspberry pi to detect motion in the video and store those snippets to local storage. With motion running, the adapter I was using wasn't delivering enough power resulting in storage occasionally unmounting and raspberry pi restarting taking the camera system offline. With motion detection disabled, the entire setup ran reliably for many years.

    We used https://github.com/Motion-Project/motion for crude version of that in our office closet datacenter.

    It just detected movement, sent an email with video file attached and a link to stream.

    No face detect AI but this is ancient software, and minimum effort to set up

    I had a similar setup to see what my pet hedgehog was getting up to at night and I used motion to do motion detection on the stream and save videos when it happened. I think you can also set a script to run whenever motion is detected. Might be worth looking into.
