Raspberry Pi Security Camera from Particle.io
Welcome to the official tutorial for building your very own Particle-connected security camera with Raspberry Pi! This project uses the Raspberry Pi integration with the Particle Cloud to control a PIR sensor, Neopixel LED ring, and Raspberry Pi camera to watch for intruders, snap a photo, and upload it to the web via Dropbox.
All firmware and software files for the project are located at the following GitHub repository: https://github.com/spark/particle-pi-camera
