    ^ I can view the jpg and mp4 files of this event over ssh so tried using scp to copy them to the other device but it asks me for a password. There's no password I've set that works, nor do the default pi or m.e.os passwords. It's like a puzzle to solve.

    Edit: it was asking for password for user Pi which doesn't exist in motioneyeos, different ssh from pi400 not phone allowed me to set username. Probably overlooking a simple setting in the phone version.

    Edit. Or mice, the scale is hard to judge

    Gaffa tape will sort that.

    Impressive destruction.

    Re: pihole... it almost seemed too easy a setup in the end. I disabled dhcp on the virgin hub and enabled it on the PiB and most ads are gone on all devices it seems without impacting much else as yet.

    I had started to access that via ssh & vcn so i don't need keyboard/mouse/monitor on it but I'm not sure I've made things secure enough yet so have turned those back off for now.

    I'm working through this list of tasks:

    https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentatio­n/configuration/security.md

    Have installed ufw on the pihole box but not enabled... would it be worth having on each device or is the pihole box enough as ours effectively the door to the outside world, even though every device still connects via the virgin router.

    I'm having to learn lots so might be some daft questions, I'd started all this 5yrs ago with the box I'm now using for PiHole but got sidetracked quickly then so basically starting over.

    Playing with zero & zerocam (noir but no ir source yet) and motioneyeos today. Test run in garden under bird feeder we have just seen a fox on screen (not pictured here) but I can't access the files remotely yet. I hope it saved to sd card. There's options to dump them to Google drive / photos but Google got very pissy about sending email notifications about motion detected from this.

    This might become part of my camp kit using my mobile as WiFi hotspot signal allowing and preview to phone screen.

    My French is terrible. Sounds (reads) like he stopped and was told to stay stopped, but is still running on the camera?

    Ah, I was thinking the one from Disley along the Gritstone trail.

    We have no no heating or light controls that might benefit from 24/7, we're probably behind the curve a fair bit on stuff like this.
