How To Make A Motion Detecting CCTV #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
Make a motion detecting CCTV with Raspberry Pi. via Tinkernut
We are embarking on a project to build a motion detecting CCTV camera. We’ll be using a Raspberry PI and a USB webcam or PiCam. We’ll also be writing custom code in python to detect motion using SimpleCV and sending us an e-mail alert with a picture attached. In part one of this series, we use a raspberry pi to write a python e-mail notification program.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
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.
