I just finished part one of my doorbell project.
I'm using a Raspberry with a push button connected to publish a MQTT topic to my MQTT server which also runs my node red install. For that I'm using https://github.com/flyte/pi-mqtt-gpio which works quite well and is simple enough (for me to understand).
Part two is the picture. I have a camera connected to the remote Raspberry and want to send the picture and ideally a short videoclip to my main node red raspberry for further processing e.g. displaying in dashboard and sending it via telegram or email.
Did anyone of try that before? raspistill and raspivid are both working locally...
Ideally I would like to trigger a still or vid via MQTT and then publish the result to the MQTT server.
I though about using node-red also on the doorbell device but I want to keep it very simple...once this doorbell device is running I want to forget about it and not touch it again.
Thanks for any tips/advice/script
