The purpose of this project is to monitor a make space with a view to some activities:

  • Human activity, perhaps just entry and exit or perhaps more
  • Monitor for fire or other environmental problem
  • Record data both on and off site.
  • Send notifications


  • Just a draft, all including purpose is up for grabs.
  • Need to recruit a project team.


  • Raspberry Pi
  • Pi camera
  • Wireless Access
  • 5v plug in power
  • Hack a commercial fire detector for fire detection.
  • Servo to move the camera ??
  • Door or other occupancy sensor ??


  • Lets do all we can in Python!
