I have just got my first Raspberry Pi, (3 Model B+) and am having so much fun with it. My first project is a simple wildlife camera that takes pictures using a simple python script to detect motion. It works great and I have since updated it to also take 10-second videos on motion, (Great for watching the birds in front of a bird feeder).
I have set up samba to make it easy to access the files, but that requires me to be connected to a wifi network. Is there any way that I could use Samba, by connecting over wifi directly to the pi? so that I could go outside with my laptop and have a look if I caught any good images without having to take it inside and connect to my home wifi network.
Even better would be to somehow make the images accessible by any browser so I could have a look at the pictures that were taken. The SD card I am using is multi-purpose so I don't want to mess too much with the wifi configuration etc.
If anyone could point me in the right direction I would appreciate it greatly, Thank you!
