PiDoorbell - Instantaneous Video Notifications with Arduino & RaspberryPi

Project: PiDoorbell - Instantaneous Video Notifications with Arduino & RaspberryPi

Have you ever found yourself obsessively checking the UPS or FedEx tracking site to see if your package finally got delivered at your doorstep? Or wondered when your contractor/gardener showed up to do their job? Or if your neighbor came looking for you on an urgent matter while you were out?

In this talk, I will show you how you can relax and rely on your handy-dandy smartphone to let you know when these events happen along with video snippets of what happened and who showed up!

She is a homeowner and uses this gadget everyday at home to see who’s at her front door.
