Hi Everyone,

 

I really wanted to do something for Halloween this year, so I got my Raspberry Pi, Pi Camera and a motion sensor and got to work.

 

I  created a motion activated scream, this was fairly simple to program in Python but then I wanted to make it so that I could take pictures as well. So I hooked up my Pi camera and a breadboard with a couple of buttons and a red and green LED for indicating the program was running and when it was busy.

 

I was really pleased with this, it was getting somewhere, I took it to my mums and she loved it so I naturally had to improve it and put it into a case.

 

The next step was to operate it remotely so I installed web.py which gives you a really easy way to program a web interface on your Raspberry Pis 8080 port.

 

I quickly put together a sound board and made the web pages pull back pictures of people who have been caught. So I went on to how to encase the project in a way it didn't arouse suspicion.

 

I decided to go with a power supply case from a Maplins store for 3.99, it required almost no modification except a hole for the audio port.

 

I have added pictures of my project below and a video demo.

The next steps for this project is powering it via a battery and adding an internal speaker.

 

If you have any other suggestions please feel free to leave me a comment.

I have put a video on Youtube giving a 5 minute demonstration.

 

 

 

Thank you.
