I have a camera swarm that I need to record capture numbers with their filenames so I can group them together on the webserver they are uploaded to. Each time I capture images I would like each of the modules that took a picture to have the same capture number.
I have been able to write code to increment the capture number each time (image attached), but the issue is that I have to use a bridge which only works with 2 ESP32’s at a time. I could fix this by adding bridges to each module effectively “daisy chaining” them, but that would require a new program for each module and that would be a huge hassle for 16 - 24 ESP32 modules.
Is there an easy way to keep (and preferably even reset) a global capture number that each of the ESP32-CAM modules pull from each time a new image is taken?
I’m using the legacy app to control them.
