Voyager 2a is TinyPilot's professional-grade KVM over IP device. Its quiet, compact design makes it a great fit for professional environments such as offices, data centers, and server rooms.

Build your own

See "TinyPilot: Build a KVM Over IP for Under $100" for a more detailed tutorial on how to assemble these parts to create a TinyPilot.


  • Raspberry Pi OS Bullseye (32-bit)
  • python3-venv

Simple installation

You can install TinyPilot on a compatible Raspberry Pi in just two commands.

curl \
  --silent \
  --show-error \ | \
    bash - && \
  sudo reboot

When your Pi reboots, you should be able to access TinyPilot by visiting your Pi hostname in the browser. For example, if your device is named raspberrypi:

If you're using an HDMI to CSI capture chip (such as with a TinyPilot Voyager series device), see the additional configuration steps required for video capture.

Developer installation

See the CONTRIBUTING file.

Other installation options


If you're having trouble with TinyPilot, you can retrive logs from the web dashboard by clicking "Logs" in the bottom of the main dashboard.

If you can't access the web dashboard, you can retrieve the logs by SSHing into the device and running the following command:

sudo /opt/tinypilot-privileged/scripts/collect-debug-logs

This log is useful if you file a bug report.

You can read more details about the logs in the wiki.

Security considerations

TinyPilot does not support authentication or transport-level encryption. You should only use TinyPilot on networks that you trust. Anyone who accesses the TinyPilot URL can shutdown or restart your Pi and type arbitrary commands into the device to which your Pi is connected.

To use TinyPilot on untrusted networks, you can upgrade to TinyPilot Pro, which adds password-based authentication and TLS for end-to-end encryption.

As a free alternative, you can adjust your Nginx configuration (included by default with the installation) to require HTTP Basic Authentication and add a self-signed TLS certificate.
