I'm quite a novice when it comes to setting up an MQTT broker and subscriber etc. Are there any specific tutorials you recommend? Also, ultimately I must receive the motion alert on my android phone. How can I achieve this?OutoftheBOTS wrote: ↑Wed Jun 20, 2018 3:58 amPIR sensors are cheap and see at night well because they see body heat so also are not set off by other motion not involving heat(windy blowing doors/trees).
The cheap Easy way to link these things remotely is with a ESP8266 node mcu via MQTT message to your RPi
Sorry, I did not word my query well. I need to place motion detectors in a staircase and in a room close to my position, not on myself. In fact it is essential that I don't trigger it myself and cause a false positive detection. So if someone is coming up the stairs silently I need to know so I can get away quickly, and if someone is entering a room that leads to my position I will be notified on my mobile and can escape / hide while I have the chance.bensimmo wrote: ↑Wed Jun 20, 2018 7:22 amAre you walking around the room and if so will you be wearing the device on yourself ?
(that's the way I read your question ?)
A more powerhungry way is to use a PiZeroW and a IR camera and some higher 900nm+ LED's (these shoudln't glow to the eye)
just put a small screen in front of your eye in a helmet cam.
I have the exact same PIR sensor as the one you linked! It's quite a decent one. I will consider smtp, however it is definitely not the quickest and most reliable. Pikrellcam and MotionEye are cool but since there is a risk that I'll end up losing the devices I can't afford to be using Raspberry Pi Cameras and stuff. Just a motion detector that sends a notification via mqtt / wifi is what I need. There isn't much room to hide it so the system must be as tiny as possible.Gavinmc42 wrote: ↑Wed Jun 20, 2018 8:32 amWireless Alarm system, PIR with dialer.
PIR sensor on a Zero W
Some smtp code to email you a message to your phone, add Pi camera to send you a pic.
But this depends on email timing.
Perhaps Pikrellcam with motion detected triggered script.
Does MotionEye OS send message on movement?
The Zero case will fit the Pi Camera, just need the software and USB battery bank.
Can you conceal it so that it overlooks the stairs?
