Simple #RaspberryPi Security System Housed in MakerBeam Enclosure
Motion triggered image capture.
Mobile notifications with images.
Detects when you are home and arms or disarms automatically.
Can be remotely disabled or queried for status using pushbullet app.
Built using a PIR sensor and with the ability to take photographs, this project also uses a novel system to check whether the occupant in the field of the sensor is ‘authorized’ or not:
One of my main goals was to have the system completely automatic. I didn’t want to have to arm or disarm it when leaving or arriving home. I figured the easiest way to achieve this was to try and detect the mobile phones of the home occupants.
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
