How to Make a Smart Security Camera with a Raspberry Pi Zero



In this video, we use a Raspberry Pi Zero W and a Raspberry Pi camera to make a smart security camera! The camera uses object detection (with OpenCV) to send you an email whenever it sees an intruder. It also runs a webcam so you can view live video from the camera when you are away.

See how we built it, including our materials, code, and supplemental instructions, on Hackster.io: https://www.hackster.io/hackershack/smart-security-camera-90d7bd
