Raspberry pi security system v001

NEW GUIDE: DIY ESP8266 Home Security with Lua and MQTT:

One of the things I’ve noticed about home security systems is how expensive they are! The monetization model for home security is to not worry about making money on the hardware but sell the monitoring service at high rates. This is needed to support call centers for monitoring all the devices on a 24×7 basis. I’d love to have an alarm system, but they’re prohibitively expensive. We Makers can certainly do better!

The goal of the system is to detect doors or windows opening. If you don’t expect the door or window to open, you know something is up. This tutorial only talks about the door/window sensors and the alarm sequence. There are all kinds of things you can add to this alarm system once you have it constructed: smoke/fire sensors, carbon monoxide detectors, and security cameras, to name a few.

See the full guide here.


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.
