The Raspberry Pi enables building sophisticated alarm systems for a low price and with comparably low effort. The alarm system presented herein detects if a specific bluetooth device (e.g. smartphone) is present. If a PIR (passive infrared) motion sensor detects movement and the smartphone is not present, an piezo-buzzer is activated. This is easily extendable, for example by triggering sms alerts. Thanks to Rob Zwetsloot and the MagPi for the idea!
