Implementation of Home Security Motion Detector using Raspberry Pi and PIR Sensor
Home Security Motion Detector is a system to monitor the movements of intruders in the home area. However, the existing CCTV system lacks a motion detection mechanism and is expensive. Therefore, a low-cost system is implemented using Raspberry Pi Zero, a PIR Sensor, a Pi Camera, push notification features, and Android applications. The Android application is integrated with the proposed system to allow users to monitor their homes from remote sites. The system may also be controlled with a few basic commands, which the user may enter into the Telegram application. The PIR sensor allows night vision motion detection and records the video for future reference. Findings show that even though the home security motion detector system is a low-cost system but it produces a high-quality output in a fast duration of detection, which the alert notifies the user's smartphone. In a conclusion, the proposed system shows that the system is able to send notifications even though the camera is blocked by a barrier. The motion sensor detects the presence of movement based on infra-red light in a range of 14 meters. The significance of the proposed system produces a convenient and secure environment for the neighbourhood from burglars and intruders.
