Building a Smart Security Camera with Raspberry Pi Zero, Node.js and The Cloud

A key advantage of the IoT is that it enables you to expand the potential of constrained devices by giving them access to the computational power of The Cloud. In this session I’ll show you how I transformed a lowly Raspberry Pi Zero webcam into a smart security camera (with motion detection, threat detection and alert notifications) by combining open source software with cloud based image analysis. Attendees can expect a short explanation of how to set up their own Raspberry Pi Zero webcam, an introduction to Image Analysis as a Service, and finally a demonstration of how I used Node.js and a range of cloud based API’s (including Amazon’s Rekognition, Lambda and Step Function services) to help my smart security camera distinguish between an unwanted guest and the neighbours cat.
