Build Your Own Surveillance with old phone and motion/motioneye on Android Openwrt

If you have some old phones collecting dust in a drawer somewhere, don’t sell them for a fraction of what you bought them for. If they still turn on, you can put them to good use in your home.

You could turn one into a baby monitor or a makeshift Google Home speaker, etc. One of the most useful ways to upcycle an old phone is to make it into a home security camera.

1、First install the IP camera APP on the phone, so that you can use the phone camera for video surveillance

  • Cannot access the network surveillance video from the internet

But if you use Android Openwrt together, you can get the following benefits:

  • You can manage and browse multiple mobile phones camera in a unified interface
  • The video can be saved on the USB hard disk connected to the set-top box
  • You can browse the network surveillance video from the internet through frpc

2、Use a browser to access the Android openwrt motioneye web management interface, the address is http://xx.xx.xx.xx:8765, xx.xx.xx.xx is the ip address of Android openwrt

username is admin, and initial password is empty
Select the “add camera” drop-down menu in the upper left corner
Configure camera type according to the rtsp url and usrname/password on the mobile APP
Configure the storage location of pictures and videos, it is recommended to save it on the hard disk
Input movies config
Input motion detection config
After clicking “apply” button in the upper left corner, you will see the camera image
