Let’s capitalize on the Yun Arduino new features to create an electronic “guard dog”, which allows you to watch your stuff, a hidden corner of the backyard or our car silently laying in the garden.
Here we wanted to face a small project, but one you would not be able to do with old Arduino boards. Connect a webcam, being able to display images on a web browser and activate actions if “something” or “someone” moves into the field that we want to hold on check. After an event trigger we could be alerted by Twitter, reusing the example proposed, or by e-mail, or even with the lightening of a notification LED.

  • Drone: So these go for around $330 USD and NO published calibration procedure online or otherwise? Given what's inside - I don't think I'll be considering...
  • Pekka Akselin: This is ridiculous!? :-) We are back at 256(!) byte EPROMs that needed multiple, a handful, of voltages to run! :-(
  • KH: Let's try a back-of-envelope calc balancing energies. From MCP1700 datasheet, there are graphs for a 200mA load step. Estimate the energy shortfall as 12uJ. Say...
  • Daniel: It's been a week and my comment is still awaiting moderation. Apparently the CIA doesn't want their involvement known?
  • KH: Agree, so okay, I guess he must have learned from somewhere. 100nF and 1000uF is so far apart, that was jarring; it's more magic incantation...
