This is the video presentation I submitted for round 2 of the Microsoft "Dare To Dream Different" competition.
The main functions of the system are:
- Guard dog barks when guests arrive at the door. Activated by movement detected by a PIR sensor.
- Doorbell playing different individual tunes, stored as MP3 files on USB memory stick. Using VMUSIC2 MP3 player module.
- Door access control with electronic door lock and door open/close sensor.
- Door access can be controlled remote by sending SMS to the system from a mobile phone. Using a GSM modem.
- Door alarms are sent as SMS to predefined mobile phone number.
- Guest can write a SMS message which is sent to a predefined mobile phone number.
Unfortunately some parts of the video is a little dark, but I hope that you can see it anyway.
As the length of the video for the competition could not be more than 10 minutes, I ran out of time to show all features in the system. Maybe I will add more video clips of this later.
