COST-EFFECTIVE RASPBERRY PI BASED SURVEILLANCE SYSTEM USING INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY
Home security is paramount. Criminals break into houses and cart away valuables and sometimes injure/kill the property owners. Though the existing home security system is effective however it is not affordable to the majority. Thus, due to the high cost of CCTV or IP camera systems alike, there is a need to develop a cost-effective surveillance system using innovative technology. This study develops and builds a prototype of a low-cost security system based on Raspberry Pi microcomputer. The Raspberry Pi will interface with Pi camera without interfacing the device with a PIR sensor, remotely send an email to a prescribed mail hub and also send SMS alert to the facility owner and or security agency.
