How To Stream Live Video Feed From Raspberry Pi To Remote Server?

I am working on a senior year engineering project which aims to decrease porch theft. The goal is to implement an IoT solution. I am trying to stream a live feed from a Raspberry Pi 3 B+ to a server so that the users can see their front porch from their Android device whenever they want and also receive a notification when there is someone at the door. I created a droplet with Debian and connected two different devices. However, I have no prior knowledge about streaming or managing a server. From the tutorials and previously asked questions I was unable to find anything that works for me. I will appreciate any suggestion or material you think that can help me.

Hello there,

If you already have the Raspberry Pi and the camera module you can either use any of the available raspberry pi stream repositories or configure it manually like in this article:

Hope that this helps! Regards, Alex
