I have bought an WiFi security camera from banggood. The Digoo BB-M2 Mini WiFi HD 720P costs about 20 €, which is quite cheap for this kind of product.
This article will analyze the serial interface of the IP camera.
Now it is possible to identify interfaces on the PCB. At the left hand side of the picture below, an interface with three pads could be seen. With an oscilloscope it is possible to identify the functionality of this pins.
It is possible now to access the serial interface with a USB to serial converter, which could be connected to the IP camera. With this it is possible to receive and send commands.
Potential hardware specification:
- Processor: Ingenic T10 (MIPS)
- Operating System: Linux
- WiFi Module: ???
- Flash: ???
