You can control the Pi from your phone using Pi User Interface (PiUi):

Expert:  Pete replied 2 months ago.

I'm not sure why that would be happening; I'll check if the other techs have any idea on this.

Expert:  Jason Jones replied 2 months ago.

Hello,
I am the person that will be helping you today.

You state that you are stuck at the step where you run the following command: ./motioneye.py

Have you verified that you are using the correct IP address and port for the step that follows? If so, which IP and Port are you using?

I will be standing by, looking forward to your response.

Thank you,
Jason

Are you able to ping the PI device?

Expert:  Pete replied 1 month ago.

Hi, just checking in on your question. How did things turn out for you?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I have set it aside as I ran out or options, Yes I can ping it. Icmp requests are not blockednon the device. The issue seems to be needing someone who specializes in pi and cameras
Expert:  Bruce Wilner replied 1 month ago.

What exactly do you need done?

Things don't "read off port 8765" or whatever all by themselves. By the way, there are TWO such ports: one for UDP, one for TCP. Which one?

How is this device to be controlled?

Did you need a driver? Do you have a driver? Did you need a management application?

Expert:  Bruce Wilner replied 1 month ago.

First problem: doing systems programming in Python.

I was hoping there was an easy way to make the pi be a camera station yeah know?
