The Tweeting Intercom: (Door Strike) Relay Monitoring with Raspberry Pi @Raspberry_Pi #piday #raspberrypi
This tutorial from PCDaily shows you how to use a raspberry pi to build a tweeting intercom:
So, why would you possibly need a tweeting intercom? – Well, first of all you are not limited to sending tweets only. Theoretically, you could kick off any Raspberry Pi project so you are only limited by your creativity 😉 We chose to go for tweeting since the DoorLine Pro intercom comes with an integrated motion sensor which can be configured to trigger the two available relays. Imagine you are away from home and someone tries to break into your house: The intercom motion sensor would trigger the relay, the Raspberry Pi would detect the state change and take a picture tweeting it alongside an alert message and time-stamp.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
