So I extended my webcam project to become a security system while I was away for the last couple weeks.
I mounted a webcam with two Futaba S3003 servos (pan + tilt) with the help of a Meccano 5-model set . I also installed 2 PIR sensors to detect movement. Then I mounted all to a tripod.
I created 2 ioBridge messaging actions to send me a TXT message if any of the PIR sensor went to the ON position (note that I only activated this action while away to avoid receiving a huge amount of TXTs) and also a Digital input to servo position action to move the camera to the direction of movement.
I placed the camera on the side of my main hall, so I was able to get at 180 degree view of my house while away.
scentsy) that I was able to to turn on the day I flew back home.
Now I only wonder what will it take to tap into my actual security system with my ioBridge.
