Small CCTV Monitor for RTSP Display
This project allows the use of an old raspberry pi (V1), plus a basic automotive 7″ analogue LCD screen to display streamed CCTV images.
It seemed like I’d owned a few mobile devices in my lifetime and a while back I gradually built up a list. The list showed that it was around one per year starting in the early ’90s, although there were times I had a work and personal phone or tablet at the same time. I thought I’d jog my own nostalgia a bit more by writing a bit of history of the cellphones in particular, and why I had them.
More and more home automation devices from China are coming with no ESP8266 module, especially the TUYA based ones. Some are coming with a WB3S (which is different to the TYWB3S), but this can easily be removed and replaced with a cheap ESP12F (or similar) module.
How much to you save buying a used EV, and is it worth it? How long is the payback? This is my actual calculations about four years later and close to 100kkms on the odometer of the 2014 Nissan Leaf I purchased. Cutting to the chase, it was a LOT better than my estimates, and I wish we’d bought two of them.

Unfortunately I had a couple of issues flashing them and keeping them stable so had to find a solution.
This is the method I followed for my Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro to get from my previously installed AOSP ROM to a stock based ROM (I’ll change to a modified stock ROM later). It includes Root so a bunch of useful things can be installed. I had a nice AOSP ROM previous to this, but the camera was a stumbling block – the Xiaomi stock camera is so much better.
Beach Hop rolled around quickly for 2021 as the last one was just in November. Some awesome new vans on view, and the usual suspects back with there fantastic renovations, displays and creations. I’m looking forward to next year’s Caravans & Classics sponsored light show – it was organised at short notice this year and not a lot of vans…
Beach Hop in Whangamata was supposed to be in March this year but was rescheduled to November due to the Pandemic. These photos were mostly taken on the Friday. The winning caravan this year was Kate & Tony Bartlett with their show set-up 50s styled caravan Frankie-Jo and matching vehicle. Runners up were Greg and Kaylie Vine. If you would…
