Creating a face- recognizing security cam with a Raspberry Pi.

In the first post in this series, we introduced the idea behind the Facecam, a Facebook-enabled security camera running on a Raspberry Pi device.

Over the next three posts we’re going to look in more detail at the system’s components. In this post, we’re going to start by looking at the component – the only one that doesn’t actually run on the Raspberry Pi – that downloads the information from Facebook to build the facial recognition database to be used by the device.
