Description

A cheap alarm system was created using a Raspberry Pi that has better functionality than current security systems in market. The project was motivated by roommates’ constantly opening door in the wrong situation. To solve this, a notification is sent to the phone once the door is touched. The end user of the security system downloads an app and configures how they want the security system to be used. Options include setting the security system to take pictures of the intruder, what time to turn the system off/on; in case user is already in room and wants it off. Since the creator of the system are engineers and want to get the most out of the Raspberry Pi, the security system could be transformed to a notification system once the user is already in the room. Depending on the user settings, LEDs light up once the door is touched and songs can be played from a music bank. A prototype has been built and implemented to gather data: the camera takes a picture once the touch sense is touched, LED patterns have been set, and common songs like jingle bells has been created. However, sending all those data using wi-fi is the current battle. Within the month of March, the team would look to take down this problem.
