Home Security Network Development Using The Arduino Platform
The Arduino is an open source micro-controller built on a single circuit board that is capable of receiving sensory input from the environment and controlling interactive physical objects. 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.
Arduino-Based ECU Development Board With Dual CAN Bus Interface
Leverage the power of an ARM Cortex M3 32-bit processing capability in combination with a dual CAN Bus interface to create your next CAN Bus, OBD-II or SAE J1939 application or prototype.
By combining our dual CAN port interface, the Arduino DUE microcontroller, an OBD2 or SAE J1939 cable, and open-source software libraries you are ready to go with powerful a turn-key Arduino-based dual CAN bus solution.
Use the vast resources of Arduino software (sketches) and hardware components (shields) to create your CAN Bus, OBD2, or SAE J1939 application.
Possible applications include:
- CAN to USB Gateway and Protocol Converter
- CAN to Wireless (WiFi, Bluetooth) Gateway
- SAE J1939 Gateway and Protocol Converter
- CAN Data Logger
- CAN Bridge (connecting 2 CAN networks, even at different baud rates)
- CAN Analyzer (in combination with a suitable Windows program)
- SAE J1939 Data Monitoring
- CAN Bus ECU Prototyping
- SAE J1939 ECU Prototyping
