Make A Security Camera With Python



Welcome back to another video! In this video, I’m going to show how to create a security camera system using OpenCV. We’ll be detecting a face or body in the footage so a webcam or external camera that can connect to your computer is needed. We’ll be using that camera through OpenCV and detecting a face or body before recording.

  1. Great Video! could make a part two in which the webcam detects a person and opens a door if the right person's face is detected. It would be really cool!

  2. Tim, you are the best. I hope there will be continue of this series (at least part two):
    1.) Manage files (delete records older than some period)
    2.) Notification on e-mail about new record
    3.) … and more features with Python

    Tim, thank you for your Youtube content! 😉
