Once connected, the network camera will work exactly like a local camera. IP Camera Examples The classic real world application for an IP camera is a security camera. A WiFi connected web camera can easily stream a live video feed to a central location for monitoring. These examples are focused on basic image capture. Later chapters of the book will talk about how to detect motion and other ideas for creating a more robust application. The two versions of the security camera application are demonstrated: • Streaming a single live feed • Capturing multiple streams and displaying them in a single panel As with the previous examples, these are best run as Python scripts—and not in the SimpleCV shell.

If the images used in this book are then stored in a folder named SimpleCV located in the home directory, then the paths to the example images used in this chapter would be: SimpleCVC:\Users\your_username\SimpleCV\Chapter 2 on Windows SimpleCV/home/ your_username/SimpleCV/Chapter\ 2 on Linux SimpleCV /Users/your_username/ SimpleCV/Chapter\ 2 on Mac.
