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.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
