- Now that you have a working basic alarm system,…you may wish to add other more advanced features…to make it do the things other alarm systems do.…The RaZberry board allows you to connect…to common Z-Wave devices found on other alarm systems.…There are Z-Wave thermostats, door locks,…lighting control systems, etcetera,…that will interact with a RaZberry board.…OpenRemote is software that will work…on any platform that you've got…that will allow you to create sliders,…buttons, and all sorts of interactivity…to allow you to communicate with some of these…more advanced things.…
I encourage you to explore the available options,…will allow you to expand your Raspberry Pi alarm system.…
This DIY electronics project provides simple directions for getting your home monitoring system up and running. Author David Ross helps you select a power supply, camera, motion detector, enclosure, and other components and accessories, and make your system "smart" by connecting to web services frameworks such as Weaved and WebIOPi. Then he helps you program the logic to make your Pi camera take pictures and stream video, connect to home peripherals, and mount your alarm system. With this training, and a little elbow grease, you can create a fully autonomous system that helps you and your family feel more secure at home and away.
Note: These instructions work with Raspberry Pi B, Raspberry Pi B+, and Raspberry Pi 2 models.
- Selecting hardware, including a Raspberry Pi camera and a Pi Cobbler
- Configuring VNC, SSH, and WebIOPi services
- Sending SMS messages with the Raspberry Pi
- Taking and accessing pictures remotely
- Setting up video streaming with a Raspberry Pi camera
- Connecting the Pi to the development board
- Connecting the relay and motion detector
- Programming the alarm in Python
- Mounting and securing the alarm system
