Next, take out the set of screws and spacers.

Place the spacers to maintain a safe distance between the raspberry pi and the sensor. Add all 4 screws so that the unit is secured.

 

Step 3
Take out the camera shell. Unscrew the bottom bolts that you have screwed on while testing. You don’t need these as the shell contains the female nut. Carefully place the assembly into the shell and tighten the screws. Later you can attach the stand to the assembly.

Step 4

Create a cloud account at http://app.ibeyonde.com.  The username and password are case sensitive. These will be required to cloud connect your Raspberry Pi DIY camera to cloud.

 

Step 5

Prepare the sd card. You need to download the image from the link here. After the image is downloaded you need to copy it to your sd-card. Use any of the methods prescribed here for your os:

Attach and switch on the power supply. The device will now advertise itself as a hotspot that is visible on the wifi list on your mobile or laptop. You need to connect to this to configure the device. Instructions are here.

Cloud Connect

If you followed the above steps then you will have a working cloud camera that should give you a very low latency video feed to all the major browsers on all major devices (smartphones, tablets, and laptop). You can now add more DIY devices to your account to create a grid of such devices that can all be viewed and controlled from your cloud account.
