Les gens qui refusent d'aller de l'avant.

I wasn't trying to argue with anybody, just repeated a standard response to a common question.
I do use #IPv6 end encourage everyone to do the same. ISPs are often not providing it, but they tend to be jerks in general.
I don't care about the monopolies and their users (≠ customers), let's assume they do not exist, and proceed from that point?

L'université de Lorraine recherche des retours d'expérience de déploiement #IPv6 dans d'autres universités ou établissements d'enseignement.

Hmmm I think that my server or hoster has an issue with #IPv6 #scaleway

Happy 20th Birthday #IPv6.

Soon you will be old enough to drink to forget that you are not deployed in way too many places.


Video-surveillance at home

Following some burglary in our neighbourhood, I am installing some video-surveillance. I would rather not have my videos uploaded to a (foreign) cloud service, pay a monthly license fee, or lose the service when (not if) the cloud service stops. #domotics

I have settled for a (discount) D-Link DCS-2210L, and I am glad for my choice so far. It is a discontinued model, but that does not matter much for me: it is not directly exposed to the Internet, and can still be bought. #iot
Yes, I know :-P

It has a wide-angle Full-HD camera (covers one large room without problem), MPEG4, night vision, PIR (infrared) motion sensor, 2-way audio, Ethernet (I do not like Wi-Fi for stationary installations), and IPv6. #ipv6

It can be used standalone, with many options to view videos live, upload videos by e.g. FTP, send video-clips by e-mail when motion has been detected, mask areas of the video, etc.

There is also the option to use the D-Link cloud system "mydlink" and their mobile app. That is not for me, but good for someone who wants to be self-hosted, but who is not ready yet.

I use it coupled with my Synology Surveillance Station, which stores videos continuously locally in low quality, and in high quality when events are detected, as well as sending notification alerts with photos, also accessible from a mobile app. There are good options to sync/upload with a distant server, in case the NAS is stolen :-P


Next step is a second camera for outside.
