Add a Camera using a Raspberry Pi

Turn your Raspberry Pi into an Elumi-cam using VDO.
We've partnered with VDO.Ninja to make onboarding as quick and easy as possible.
By utilizing VDO.Ninja, no bandwidth is used for streaming to Elumicate unless cameras are actively being mined.

Hardware requirements

Raspberry Pi with a CSI-connected camera + Micro SD + Power block
