Edison Doorbell Detects Motion, Streams Video & Sends ‘Someone is at the door’ Email #IoT #IoTuesday
Edison is two-fold here: it’s built with the Intel Edison, and it’s housed on a MDF-backed cutout of Thomas Edison, whose right eye doubles as the webcam!
A motion detecting doorbell, that senses when someone is near the door(bell) and via a
webcam streams the video of the person approaching the door to a web address while
playing a sound. This is a medium-advanced level tutorial, is intended to be a good start point for a basic IoT device.
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.
