Security Monitoring Device

  • Brendan Horan


The Raspberry Pi can be used for a lot of different projects, two of which you have seen so far. There was one application for the Raspberry Pi that I overlooked because I originally assumed it may be too complicated. This would be how handy the Raspberry Pi would be to use to make a small home security system. This idea was given to me by a close friend and the first thing I did was question him on the fact that I thought security systems were complex. However, the devices used inside the systems at a very basic level are quite simple. A good example of this is when I prompted my friend about pressure sensor pads and the lack of documentation I could find on them. He then explained to me that the pad is just two contact points that touch when pressure is applied; simply put, the pad is a normally open circuit. The idea of using the Raspberry Pi as a security monitoring device was then born.
