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

Expert:  Pete replied 11 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 11 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

Expert:  Jason Jones replied 11 months ago.

Are you able to ping the PI device?

Expert:  Pete replied 10 months ago.

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

Customer: replied 10 months 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 10 months 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 10 months 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?
