DIY Text Messaging Alarm System!


For those of you trying to build your own text-messaging alarm system for your home, you might want to take a look at this guy’s DIY text-messaging alarm system that uses a camera, servos, and texts to your phone whenever a movement is detected.

Of course, for just motion detection, I think you can use motion detector instead. You can also take a look at my experimental alarm system I made couple years back using a motion detector.

I created 2 ioBridge messaging actions to send me a TXT message if any of the PIR sensor went to the ON position (note that I only activated this action while away to avoid receiving a huge amount of TXTs) and also a Digital input to servo position action to move the camera to the direction of movement.
