I'm somewhat a new user to XPE running on a N54L. I needed to setup a camera to catch who's been letting their
dog do it's business without cleaning up and not wanting to buy a IP Camera. Having a few USB Webcams. I tried
to use that only to find that the security app in Synology doesn't support native USB.
Tried the USB Addons to trick into making the USB Camera look like a IP. None of it worked. So I looked for
another solution. I began thinking if there was away to do it via hardware and decided to see what I could
do with the good old hacker's delight "Raspberry PI" Didn't take me long to find this project called MotionPIE.
It's basically like the security application that comes with the Synology. But I didn't want to use it's functionality
but the stream it provided.
I tried a few other methods and distro's that said they could turn the webcam into a 'ip camera' none of them seemed to
work for me, and just decided on using MotionPie

This setup works like a dream for now. This way I'm not limited to where the NAS is located and the length of the USB wire and not having to buy a IP Camera.
