Smart Display and Security System

17 March 2017

This unit serves two purposes:

  1. Identify intruders and alert residents of possible threats
  2. Aggregate and display information on an unobtrusive display.

The Python Open Computer Vision module aids in both functions. OpenCV constructs a digital model of scene and uses mathematical operations to assess the threat posed by any motion. If a threat is detected when the residents are asleep or not home, an alert will be issued and pictures of the intruder will be automatically uploaded to the cloud.
