I want to connect 4 RasPi to one windows PC using ethernet cables. The plan is to have each RasPi equipped with a camera. I will have the cameras start recording upon the press of a button, then a second button press will stop the recording AND send the video file to the PC for storage and analysis. So, the RasPis are only connected to power, the button(s) and the PC through the ethernet cables.
I am only looking for help to setup the connection between the RasPis and PC so this idea can work. I will deal with the button and camera setup myself. I am just providing the full picture in case something was relevant and I did not realise.
I was planning to use an ethernet switch and setup a LAN with the PC as a host. However, I cannot find clear instructions on how to do that...
Any advice appreciated!
