    NVR with realtime local object detection for IP cameras

    One of my options was to go for a refurbished enterprise grade server that could handle multiple VMs. It was overkill. Instead I decided to build around a NVR service called Frigate. It does continuous recording, events, motion detection, object detection, and HomeAssistant integration. If you run it on the CPU, it will bog it down because it virtualizes the object detection. If you add a GPU, it will offload the video encoding but the Machine Learning is still virtualized. But Frigate has ML offloading to a Coral TPU. These things are relatively hard to get because stocks are low. But once you plug it in, the CPU has to deal only with video encoding (if you lack a dedicated GPU). And the TPU sips power.
