Good news - we're open for limited services in Wembley. Ujima House is now actively under refurbishment and we'd love your help in making the space the best it can be.

Please pay attention to the main LHS mailing list or pop into our #london-hack-space IRC channel and say hello.

During this interim period donations and continued membership are greatly appreciated while we transition to our new space.

Pledge: CCTV Server

From London Hackspace Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

We are looking at purchasing a better small computer to use for managing the webcams/CCTV for the space. Pledge opened: 27/5/1024

Pledge leader: Jasper

We need

  • Decent CPU, should be much better than an Atom D410, see here.
  • Motherboard MUST have a pci slot to take the current capture card
  • Motherboard must have at least 2 x sata connectors.
  • Ethernet, we don't care about wifi.
  • If you can find or donate a cheap pci-e capture card with 5+ channels we can do that instead, it must work with linux.
  • decent ish case that can take 2 x 3.5 in sata drives as a minimum.
  • needs to be fairly small since it has to go up on the wall by the backdoor due to cable length restrictions.

Budget estimation

  • £203.40


  • 8 x Pal video capture -> 2 x 500Gb drives mirrored.

Additional information

  • will make the webcams on the website work again.
  • +1 to the hackspace's defence rating


Running total: £25

Target: £203.40
