This project will be a home alarm system. It will be made using a Raspberry Pi, an RF receiver, some RF transmitters. The primary purpose will be to alert the homeowners with some kind of sound and maybe push notifications to registered Android devices. It will be entirely open-source and will be released under the GNU GPL.
Home break-ins are a common crime in today’s world. When a person breaks into a house, having an alarm could easily deter the criminal from continuing their crime. Alerting a homeowner is crucial when they’re in their own home allowing for a better handle on the current situation.
