Hand tools and fabrication machines
A lot of older buildings are outfitted with analog cameras. Analog cameras are nice as they are hard to hack. However, having a digital security camera is a lot more useful. In this tutorial, I will show you how to use a WIZ750SR device to convert an analog signal to a digital signal accessible from a an ethernet reading utility on your computer.
So with that, lets get started building the project.
Firstly, connect the device up like the schematic mentioned below. Connect the analog security camera to the serial pins of the connector device.
Plug the security camera into the RCA plugs of the Serial to RCA device.
Next, plug the serial from the adapter into the serial of the WIZ750SR device.
Use the following code on the board to be able to send the stream from the device.
use this code to display the stream on a web browser. Depending on the type of video camera you use, the signal produced by the ethernet adapter will change. So the code I used may not work for you to decode the stream.
Use this code to receive the stream.
I created a python wrapper for this code that utilizes UDP to display a live video feed on a webpage. Here is an image of it working:
I hope this project has been useful to you in some way. Thank you so much for reading.
