    Moonfire NVR, a security camera network video recorder

    You probably want to mount a weather-resistant camera outside. You could buy an eg Reolink security camera for this fairly cheaply. [1] Then you can stream the result to a Raspberry Pi 4 + Coral USB accelerator, an nVidia Jetson nano, or the like.

    I'm working on a security camera NVR system. [2] I have a pretty solid core recording engine now and am just thinking about what the API for on-NVR analytics plugins should look like. I'm imagining a Python API where you write some coroutine that can iterate through video frames (either live or backlogged); add events, object detection tracks, and other metadata to the database; instruct that MQTT messages be sent; etc. If you're interested in using this kind of thing, I'd love to talk more.

    [1] I used to recommend Dahua or Hikvision, but it seems they're actively supporting the Uyghur genocide via custom software, eg <https://www.latimes.com/business/technology/story/2021-02-09...>. I won't be buying any more cameras from them; I'm sure my boycott will devastate their business and cause them to reconsider their position immediately. As far as I know, Reolink is uninvolved, despite also being a Chinese company.
