About This Book
  • Learn what a security system is, how it works and create one for yourself
  • Develop a security system by setting up security cameras and motion detector systems
  • Manage and analyze all the data collected by the sensors from the security system, using a graphical application
Who This Book Is For

This book is for novice programmers and hobbyists who want to understand how an Arduino Uno can be used to program a home security system, as well as for those who want to delve deeper into the world of Arduino.

What You Will Learn
  • Run cables and electricity to support your home security infrastructure
  • Connect Arduino to your programming environment
  • Learn to interact with output devices such as alarms, locks, and shutters
  • Understand the different parts of an electronics circuit (MOSFET, resistor, and capacitor)
  • Integrate home monitoring and security notifications with monitoring systems
  • Learn how you can use the Raspberry Pi and a camera to achieve face detection for your home security system
In Detail

Arduino is an open source microcontroller built on a single circuit board that is capable of receiving sensory input from the environment and controlling interactive physical objects.

This book will demonstrate how Arduino can be used to develop a highly connected home security system by mobilizing a network of sensors that can feed alerts back to Arduino when alarms are triggered. Also, we will look at some current technologies such as NFC, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth, and will finally create a complete web interface that will allow us to remotely manage our system, and even send daily bulletins with a summary of activity.

Towards the end, we'll develop a wireless home security system by setting up security cameras and motion detectors.
