- actually, i don't want use too much sensors (basically i would use a magnetic sensor, and a motion detection camera), i just want to build a prototype of an alarm, the prototype should just send an MMS to the owners phone with an image of the intruder taken from the scene. the role of the motion detection camera is to alert the system of an intruder if the magnetic sensor failed to do so + taking picture from the scene.iainmaoileoin wrote:How much hardware do you want to build; or do you want to buy off the shelf?
What sort of budget are you on?
Do you own any old phones that can be driven by a PC?
Is your RaPi wirelessable to something with an internet connection in your house?
Can you email yourself a picture from a PC?
but in my country (Malaysia), this service is not provided anymore. i have seen some old topics about using this method in Malaysia, but when i try it doesn't work, and i contacted the service provider and they told me that this service is not provided anymore.JeremyF wrote:You should be able to automate sending an email and generally you can email SMS/MMS messages. (ex. to text a Verizon cell phone, just do firstname.lastname@example.org -- it's different for every carrier)
This assumes that the phone has service though.
