IoT Connected Security System #ArduinoMonday

Connected Security System Hackster io

From Keith Mitchell on hackster.io:

Modern security systems have several disadvantages, some of which are:

  • As a user to you can’t customize the system the way you want
  • The panel is in a centralized location, if you can’t get to it and you don’t have a keyfob handy, there is no way to trigger the alarm or arm it
  • There may be vulnerabilities that robbers are aware of with that specific system that haven’t been patched, I know that the panel we used to have for years never got any kind of updates
  • Most of the existing companies that do advanced modern systems usually need to put holes in the wall for wires or mounting, which might not be allowed if your in a rental, and that means you can’t move it with you if you go to a new place

Thinking through those things, I came up with an idea for a wireless connected alarm system, that is modular in such a way that it can be installed in any location, and be easily moved to a new place.

50-06Each Monday is ArduinoMonday here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Arduino related products. Adafruit manufactures the Arduino right here in the United States in cooperation with arduino.cc. We have a huge selection of Arduino accessories and all the code and tutorials to get you up and running in no time!


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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
