Integrate with a Raspberry Pi camera so that you can visually see what triggered the event.
Make it so that you can setup a schedule for when the alarm is active.
Enable output devices to take some type of action when motion is detected, like fire a Nerf gun or activate an alarm siren.
I use the alarm based Raspberry Pi projects that I design in conjunction with video surveillance systems. http://videos.cctvcamerapros.com/…/send-push-notifications-…
– Raspberry Pi
– 1.8v LED
– Infrared LED
The circuit for controlling infrared Lego power functions is not that complicated.
We basically just need to attach an infrared LED and a standard LED to the Raspberry Pi GPIO pin 22. ...
Raspberry Pi B+ does have a row of 40 pins,
they are NOT an IDE connector by any means.
You can read up on what they if you do some Google research, but you do not want to try and just connect up anything IDE related.
It won't work, and may damage your Pi.
