RE: Using Azure IoT Hub with Python
My recommendation is using NodeJS. I use NodeJS with Azure IoT Device and I dont run into any storage size issues. One little trick I found, install all your modules in /tmp, then move the node_modules folder to / . The folder will be highly compressed once its in flash memory.
RE: Can webcam stream other video/picture formats ?
What was the alternative?
RE: Omega PoE Dock
I am building a Hub that supports POE as well. The circuit I am using supports 12-48v DC (dont want to deal with diode rectifier for AC) POE injectors. I am actually using Ubiquity as one of the POE testers.
You have a lot more passive components than I do. Mine only uses 12 BOM line items. (14) total. Maybe because my Ethernet Jack has the Harmonics built in. Either way, good work.
RE: Cheap way to add a semi-decent display?
I went on Alibaba / Aliexpress and found the factory that makes the oled display 1". tested and works, cost is only like a dollar and change.
Attaching TFT displays to the onion , there are issues with SPI from what I remember. Nexon is one way to go but that is all screen driven over serial.
There are "ways" to do video over USB... kind of like webcam over USB just in the other direction :) Good luck though. Here is a reference:
RE: Omega Onion 2+ Price Increase???
Pi Zero W is a loss leader. That part can someday disappear. I agree spec wise its better but Onion is much better when handling network tasks IMO. Dual WiFi, 5 Ethernet Ports, etc. It's also PCB board solderable. If the Pi Zero W was PCB board solderable I would of went with that part.
RE: omega2+ unable to make USB webcam to work
microUSB is for power and UART. You can connect peripherals to the full size USB port and add a USB hub to create multiple ports if you need more than 1 device attached.
FYI on the original post, I had some webcams just not recognize in the Onion. It's gonna happen, driver issues. Also encoding issues where some camera's only output H.264/265 format.
