Raspberry Pi Email Alert


#1

Hello,

I know you can send emails from raspberry pi, I was wondering is there away to send an email alert if the raspberry pi camera is not connected or if there is an issue with recording?

Thanks

Yes its possible using a bash script to detect if the camera is connected but the script cannot detect visual problems with the camera so you would have to manually look through the footage.

What program are you using for sending email and I might be able to write a quick script for you.
