Title: Upload ESP32-CAM pictures to...?
Post by: YurkshireLad on April 08, 2021, 11:25:46 pm
I have a simple sketch for an ESP32-CAM module that is connected to an RWLC-0516 motion sensor. The code monitors the sensor and automatically takes a picture when motion is detected.

I don't know what to do with the pictures. I have a wyze camera at home that sends a notification plus a picture to my phone when it detects motion. The pictures are available on my phone wherever I am.

I could automatically email pictures from my ESP32-CAM to myself, but I'd need a SMTP service that I could use at no cost, so there's probably a limit on the number of emails I can send.

I could automatically upload the pictures to a website, but I'd have to set one up that accepts private uploads but also uses user accounts so only my wife and I can access the pictures.

I could try to upload them to something like Google photos, or OneDrive but I need to easily be able to delete them from a phone.

If I upload the pictures somewhere, I'd like them to be automatically deleted if they're too old.

Has anyone done something like this?

You can run postfix.

You will need a service like dynu.com to relay the emails.
