So my MotionEye setup works fine, but after like 24 hours everyday, when I go connect the IP address it won't connect for some reason... And I can see that the Raspberry Pi3 and the Camera is working, but I can't connect to it using MotionEye! At first I thought it might be a heat issue, but I have now installed heat pads in my Pi and the Camera, but the issue is not fixed.

Had the camera for a month now and now got issues..

No error code I just can't connect to it! I see that the Raspberry Pi3 and it's camera is on too..

  • Seems this has nothing to do with MotionEye but with networking. What Raspbian version do you use? Buster? How is the RasPi connected? Wired or wireless? Please edit your question and add the missing information.

  • Hello, can you still ping the Pi and does it's MAC/IP address still appear in the arp -a table? I ask as I once had a problem where a WiFi router was not bridging ARP replies correctly so the IP address would stop working after a while (until I ping'ed my PC from the Pi or manually added it to the PCs arp table).

  • @Ingo I have motionEyeOS version 20190911 installed to my Raspberry Pi. I don't know what is a Buster. The RasPi is connected to my Wifi wirelessly.

  • OK, I understand. You do not use any version of Raspbian (the current stable version is Raspbian Buster, Its predecessor is Raspbian Stretch). But you tagged with raspberry-pi-desktop. That cannot run on a Raspberry Pi. So what are you using now?

I fixed the issue by powering the Raspberry Pi with a 5.1V, 2.5A power plug now its been running well 24/7 ever since.
