I bought a Raspberry Pi touchscreen earlier this year and decided I wanted to build another touchscreen device based on the Internet Streaming Radio player project.
Around this time I was starting to think about home automation and the possibility of using the Pi for home security.
Raspberry Pi A+ in the porch streaming live video to the touchscreen Pi in my office over WIFI.
Live video feed from the Pi A+. The camera makes a single network connection to the desk Pi to add an extra dimension of security.
Status information about the pi
Error message if the feed from the security camera is lost
Play list information for the Internet radio.
The first four buttons control two energenie sockets.
The code for the project can be found here
