Home security systems are a growing field of projects for Makers. A self-built system is not only less expensive than a bulky professional installation, but it also allows for total control and customization to suit your needs.
For this project, you will need a regular USB webcam, a PIR motion sensor and a Raspberry Pi 2 or a MinnowBoard Max. Refer to the “Components and Supplies” section below for the store links of the required materials.
