    I installed this on my C2 and configured it and have it running. A bit of a job to do, but not hard.
    I understand now what they are doing.
    There are two parts to this:

    1) the plugin
    2) a server

    You can use their server or your own local one. The plugin is (undoubtedly) sending photos or meta-data to the server who then does the analysis and controls the "oops -- pause/email" routine. Clever.

    Server includes a semi-live feed too

    This is actually quite nifty. I need to create (or research creating) my own local server (can be done on windows or linux -- so presumably even a Pi).

    Hi Mark, Kenneth from The Spaghetti Detective here. Thank you for posting about us here.

    Unfortunately a Pi may not cut it as the machine learning model in the server needs a good cpu to crunch a lot of numbers. We are using a GPU server in the cloud right now. However if you have a Pi 3 B+ handy you can give it a shot. Just don't run it on the same pi as Octoprint. If you have some other powerful single board computers you can try on them too.

    Let me know if you run into any issues setting up the plugin/server.

    Sweet! Good to know, I will still give the pi a whirl and if that doesn't pan out perhaps we use something a bit beefier :)

    I am having a chat this Friday with Kenneth Jiang, TSD founder.
    If anyone else using this (or who has experimented with it) has any feedback they want me to push forward, please let me know.
    I have been pretty satisfied with it and it adds a lot of nice flexibility to how you use/monitor the printers.
