With under 1$ Human Detection Sensor,HC-SR501




With 2$ USB Webcam,



and Raspberry Pi connected to the Internet,



You can make Web Base Security Camera System as follows:


PIR Sensor There are many types of Human Detection Sensor, some of these watching infrared light rays and cache shutting out of this, or some these using Millimeter-wave radar. PIR(Passive Infrared Ray) Sensor is one of these Human Detection Sensor which watches the change of thermal infrared emitted from hot objects like Humans, Birds, and Mammals.
The sensor consists of a lens for thermal infrared (white plastic tip in the picture below) and a detector device.
Both parts are inexpensive parts and a detector is low current consumption parts. So, the advantage to use the PIR sensor for Human Detection is:
- Inexpensive - Low current consumption How to setup Step 1. Get account of MONITOR™ and your view_id
On your Web browser, Sign up to MONITOR™, then you can see the following display.

How to Measure ROOM CO2 concentration with 20$ sensor "MH-Z19" and Raspberry Pi

Image
MH-Z19 CO2 concentration Sensor This blog post is outdated. The updated version is here.
MH-Z19 is a small, low-cost, weigh 15g CO2 sensor module product by 郑州炜盛电子科技.
You can buy it at an online shop like eBay or aliexpress about 20$.



The electrical interface of this sensor is compatible with Raspberry Pi. So you can make your D.I.Y. CO2 Monitor with MH-Z19, Raspberry Pi, and MONITOR™.



The normal CO2 concentration is about 400ppm. In a poorly ventilated room, the CO2 concentration will soon increase and make you feel drowsy.

By ventilation, co2 concentration soon decrease and you can get your head refreshed.




You can check your room air freshness by yourself and can protect your health with this.
Cabling Connect RPi & mh-z19 as:
- 5V on RPi and Vin on mh-z19 - GND(0v) on RPi and GND on mh-z19 - TxD and RxD are connected to cross between RPi and mh-z18 
The following are an example of cabling, you can free to use other 5v and 0v Pin on the RPi.
