Home security is an essential part of owning a home. We all need to feel safe while we're at home as well as confident when we go out that burglars cannot get in. However, many homes are surprisingly easy to break into and in many cases burglars don't even have to use force. There is a huge amount that householders could do to keep their homes secure. This highly informative and practical book shows you how to protect your home and possessions without having to spend a fortune on elaborate security systems. The book starts with a chapter on what makes crime happen and the principles of crime prevention. The chapters that follow deal with boundaries, access, door and window security, garden security, lighting for both house and garden and electronic systems. A chapter on defensive plants explains how planting a dense, thorny hedge is a good way to deter intruders.

It has been reported that burglary and break-in happen almost every 15 seconds of the day. As a result, the chances of your home being at risk of a break-in are greatly increased, and it does not matter where you live in the world. When we talk of a break-in, people think of someone entering their home by breaking some windows or smashing down doors. Yet, there are things that extend an invitation to burglars and intruders to try at getting into your home. There are many places in the home that are vulnerable to attack by intruders. Therefore, you must put in place a routine that will give intruders and burglars fewer opportunities to attempt a break-in. This book discusses the weak areas in your home security which you should pay attention to, to prevent any kind of break-in from occurring.

It would be great if you have some basic soldering skills in order to build some of the interface modules. What You Will Learn Understand the concepts behind alarm systems and intrusion detection devices Connect sensors and devices to the on-board digital GPIO ports safely Monitor and control connected devices easily using Bash shell scripting Build an I/O port expander using the I2C bus and connect sensors and anti-tamper circuits Capture and store images using motion detectors and cameras Access and manage your system remotely from your mobile phone Receive intrusion alerts and images through your e-mail Build a sophisticated multi-zone alarm system In Detail The Raspberry Pi is a powerful low-cost credit-card-sized computer, which lends itself perfectly as the controller for a sophisticated home security system. Using the on-board interfaces available, the Raspberry Pi can be expanded to allow the connection of a virtually infinite number of security sensors and devices. The Raspberry Pi has the processing power and interfaces available to build a sophisticated home security system but at a fraction of the cost of commercially available systems. Building a Home Security System with Raspberry Pi starts off by showing you the Raspberry Pi and how to set up the Linux-based operating system. It then guides you through connecting switch sensors and LEDs to the native GPIO connector safely, and how to access them using simple Bash scripts. As you dive further in, you'll learn how to build an input/output expansion board using the I2C interface and power supply, allowing the connection of the large number of sensors needed for a typical home security setup. In the later chapters of the book, we'll look at more sophisticated topics such as adding cameras, remotely accessing the system using your mobile phone, receiving intrusion alerts and images by e-mail, and more. By the end of the book, you will be well-versed with the use of Raspberry Pi to power a home-based security system that sends message alerts whenever it is triggered and will be able to build a truly sophisticated and modular home security system. You will also gain a good understanding of Raspberry Pi's ecosystem and be able to write the functions required for a security system. Style and approach This easy-to-follow guide comprises a series of projects, where every chapter introduces a new concept and at the end of the book, all these concepts are brought together to create an entire home security system. This book features clear diagrams and code every step of the way.

It is also a development environment that allows the writing of software to the board, and is programmed in the Arduino programming language. It is used for a variety of different purposes and projects, from simple projects such as building a thermostat, to more advanced ones such as robotics, web servers, seismographs, home security systems and synthesizers. This book will demonstrate how the Arduino can be used to develop a highly connected home security system by mobilizing a network of sensors which can feed alerts back to an Arduino when alarms are triggered. You will know the current state of security systems, well supported by the designs that fit best for your environment. Also, we will see some current technologies such as NFC, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, and will finally create a complete web interface that will allow us to remotely manage our system, and even send daily bulletins with the summary of activity. Towards the end, we'll develop a wireless home security system by setting up security cameras and motion detectors (door and gate trips, temperature sensors). We will then set up a centralized remote access hub (powered by the Arduino) that allows sensors to connect to the wireless home network that can be viewed and interacted by the user. Style and approach A step-by-step guide with numerous examples focusing on providing the practical skills required to build home security applications using Arduino.
