Raspberry Pi is a low-cost micro-computer that is able to run Linux and has endless extension possibilities then can be also used for network video recorder (NVR) is a software program that records video in a digital format to a disk driveUSB flash drive, SD memory card or other mass storage device.

This post will guide you through the process of setting up your Raspberry Pi as a Network video recorder (NVR)


You are going to need the following:

  • A Raspberry Pi
  • An Internet connection
  • An SD Card flashed with Raspbian OS (> 8 Gb)
  • IP or Analog camera with mjpeg streaming support or USB Camera (If you want record from Raspberry’s camera module, Please visit “Raspberry Pi as low-cost HD surveillance camera“)

The Raspberry or Banana Pi have already pre-installed Python. If you like to stay with Groovy on these nice little devices, here are the instructions to install Groovy. GVM makes the whole process very easy and convenient. Open a terminal window and use these commands: curl -s get.gvmtool.net > installGroovy.sh chmod u+x installGroovy.sh installGroovy.sh source […]

The Raspberry Pi Foundation is likely to provoke a global geekgasm today with the surprise release of the Raspberry Pi 2 Model B: a turbocharged version of the B+ boasting a new Broadcom BCM2836 900MHz quad-core system-on-chip with 1GB of RAM – all of which will drive performance “at least 6x” that of the B+.

At its heart, though, is the BCM2836 SoC, which according to Upton has been in development for a couple of years. It’s “very, very similar” to its predecessor – the BCM2835 – but with four cores and “a little tweak to allow us to address the gig of RAM”

The BCM2835, as used in previous Pis, is a Broadcom GPU – the VideoCore IV – with a single 700MHz ARM1176JZF-S application core glued in to run software. The system-on-chip is shipped with 256MB or 512MB of RAM stacked on top.

The new BCM2836, on the other hand, contains four ARMv7 Cortex-A7 cores with 1GB of RAM.

The Raspberry Pi 2 Model B  is the latest version of the Raspberry Pi, a tiny credit card size computer. Just add a keyboard, mouse, display,power supply, micro SD card with installed Linux Distribution and you’ll have a fully fledged computer that can run applications from word processors and spreadsheets to games.

What’s the same:

  • Same form factor as the model B+ (your enclosures and daughter boards should still fit).
  • Same full size HDMI port
  • Same 10/100 Ethernet port
  • Same CSI camera port and DSI display ports
  • Same micro USB power supply connection

What has changed:

  • A new turbocharged  Broadcom BCM2836 900MHz quad-core system-on-chip with performance at least 6x that of the B+.
  • 1GB of RAM
