Yes! You can download the operating system image and install it on your SD card as long as you have a Raspberry v2 or v3 with the Picamera.
- Raspberry PI (v2 or v3)
- Blank SD card (8GB minimum)
- Computer with an SD card reader.
- Picamera for the RPi
Getting the OS-image onto your Raspberry PI:
- Download the compressed .iso file from here.
This will extract the camio-box-os-rpi3-2017-01-12.zip file to your current location.
- Insert into your computer the SD card you wish to use.
- Identify the name of your SD card.
- OSX :
About This Mac > System Report > USB > USB 3.0 Bus >Card Reader, then read the
BSD nameof the top level Card Reader (not the Volumes). The name should be something like
- Windows : Open Windows Explorer, and look down the column on the left to locate the drive identifier (such as :G).
- OSX :
- Burn the OS image onto the SD card.
- OSX :
- Open up your terminal.
- Double check you have the correct name of the SD card (IMPORTANT: the following command will completely overwrite the disk that is named, so ensure that you have the name right)
- Run the following command in your shell after replacing
/dev/diskXwith the path to your SD card:
dd bs=1m if=camio-box-os-rpi3-2017-01-12.zip of=/dev/diskX
- Wait for this command to finish, it should take anywhere from 5-15 minutes to complete. When it is done you will see an output resembling:
2176+0 records in
2176+0 records out
1114112 bytes transferred in 0.013963 secs (79790394 bytes/sec)
- Eject and remove the SD card from your computer.
- Windows :
- Download the Win32DiskImager utility from the Sourceforge Project page as a zip file; you can run this from a USB drive.
- Extract the executable from the zip file and run it (may need to be ran as administrator).
- From Win32DiskImager, select the camio-box-os-2016-09-11.iso file and the drive identifier of your SD card. Ensure your information is correct, and click on 'Write'. This will write the .iso file to your SD card.
- Exit the program and eject the SD card.
Getting your Box setup and configured
- Insert the SD card into your RPi, then connect the RPi to a power source and let it boot-up.
- Ensure that your picamera is properly attached to your RPi (see https://www.raspberrypi.org/learning/getting-started-with-picamera/worksheet/ for a description of how to connect the camera.) You shouldn't need to enable the camera manually, since CamioBoxOS is setup with the camera pre-enabled.
- Navigate to https://camio.com/box/register and follow the instructions from there on how to use a QR-code from our site with the PiCamera on the box to register the device.
