Tanks twitter account is of utmost importance . Currently the arguments for raspistill which controls size orientation etc , are hardocded . But if I recall correctly you can override them. I’ll double check and get backUpdate: I've setup a new reef-pi on a Pi Zero to control my freshwater tank (35 gal). It also works with the attached hydroponic garden (pumping water and turning on lights). The previous system was built on a MotionOS system with a bunch of independent scripts that were triggered through curl, but my SD card burnt out and I had to set up from scratch anyway. Reef-pi makes most of that much easier and puts everything in one place.
The only thing lacking at the moment is some basic camera controls - @Ranjib is there a way to adjust the size and rotation of the capture? I'm not familiar with golang but I can see the size parameters are hard coded into the camera/config.go file on github.
I don't mind tinkering with the code if I know where to look. The right orientation is very important for the tanks twitter account (@octo_cam_bot).
