The Raspberry Pi is truly an amazing device. This project is proof of that. With some time and a little effort I turned your typical Raspberry Pi, combined with some cheap components and IP Cameras, into a state-of-the-art (ok, that’s pushing it a little) home monitoring system capable of recording video, turning power outlets on or off and sensing movement.
I hacked the project together with some rudimentary PHP, Python, and bash scripting code. It works on any device via a web browser and also scales properly on a mobile device.
