Raspberry Pi EyeFi Server

I tried to ceate a Raspberry Pi as a standalone Photo catching device for multile EyeFi Cards.

Turns out that is not possible at the moment using EyeFi Mobi cards.

That is what I tried:

Hardware:

– Raspberry Pi

– EyeFi Mobi card

– Edimax USB Wifi Dongle

– Camera

Software:

– Raspian install
– https://github.com/dgrant/eyefiserver2/

Installation:

– git clone the eyefiserver2
– follow https://github.com/dgrant/eyefiserver2/wiki/Getting-Started

Starting

Start the script

sudo eyefiserver.py start /etc/eyefiserver.conf /var/log/eyefiserver.log

Check

[03/26/16 01:32PM][runEyeFi] - Eye-Fi server started listening on port 59278
tcp        0      0 0.0.0.0:59278           0.0.0.0:*               LISTEN      873/python  

Seems okay

Upload Key

The first issue was the upload key.
Connected two different eyefi cards with OSX and Windows 7 and was unable to find an upload key other then 00000000000000000000000000000000

On OSX:

/Users/$USERNAME/Library/Application Support/Eyefi/Eyefi Mobi/

But there is a SQL database in:

And you can do the following:

sqlite3 offline.db
SQLite version 
Enter ".help" for usage hints.
sqlite> SELECT o_mac_address, o_upload_key FROM o_devices;
00-11-11-11-11-11|12345678901234567890123456789012

Hm but still, using that upload key (was reducted) the eyefiserver2 did not work.

And I was unable to get a connection from my camera to my pi.

There is an issue reported in github:

https://github.com/dgrant/eyefiserver2/issues/9

That referenced the following Whitepaper:

https://www.os3.nl/_media/2013-2014/courses/ot/connor_stavros.pdf

So at the moment the problem has not been solved,an workaround would be using an Mac / Windows System, or to upgrade to the larger EyeFi Version:

Feel free to comment your solutions below.
