Security surveillance systems are expensive to purchase and install. The goal is to build an effective and cost efficient security system from a Raspberry Pi and a camera module that can immediately alert your mobile device with images of the intruder.
This surveillance system is to be placed in front of the users front door approximately 5 feet away so as to capture the best and most full image of the intruder. The system utilizes a camera module controlled by the Raspberry Pi and is triggered by motion to start recording. Once the images are recorded they are immediately sent through the home WiFi connection to Dropbox. The Dropbox app on the users mobile device will send a notification when a new image is uploaded.
