Design, build and maintain a home security system with Arduino Uno
This book is for novice programmers and hobbyists who want to understand how Arduino can be used to program a home security system as well as to those who want to delve deeper into the world of Arduino.
Arduino is an open source micro-controller built on a single circuit board that is capable of receiving sensory input from the environment and controlling interactive physical objects. It is also a development environment that allows the writing of software to the board, and is programmed in the Arduino programming language. It is used for a variety of different purposes and projects, from simple projects such as building a thermostat, to more advanced ones such as robotics, web servers, seismographs, home security systems and synthesizers.
This book will demonstrate how the Arduino can be used to develop a highly connected home security system by mobilizing a network of sensors which can feed alerts back to an Arduino when alarms are triggered. You will know the current state of security systems, ...
