STEP 1: SETTING UP THE WEBCAM

 

 

Open up the terminal and run:

 

sudo su

 

Press Enter

 

This will change to admin console

 

Now write:

 

sudo apt-get update

 

 

 

After this finishes running, we should test that the webcam works. 

 

Plug your webcam into the Raspberry PI and run:

 

sudo apt-get install fswebcam 

 

(This will install the driver for the webcam)

 

fswebcam test.jpg

 

(This will take a picture from your webcam.

 

Open the file manager and see if there is a photo.)

 

 

STEP 2: INSTALLING AND CONFIGURING MOTION

 

 

In order to turn our webcam into a motion detector, we will be using the open-source "motion" library which 

was designed just for this purpose.

 

First, install motion by running:

 

sudo apt-get install motion

 

 

After the motion is installed, we need to install a file explorer using which we can edit the motion.conf file

 

For that purpose, give the following command:

 

sudo su

 

 

 

sudo apt-get install nautilus-admin

 

 

Now in terminal, write:

 

sudo su

 

nautilus

 

This will open a file manager window

 

 

Next,open the file manager and navigate to this path:

 

 

 

/etc/motion/motion.conf

 

perform the following changes:

 

on_event_start python /home/pi/switch_on_motor.py

 

on_event_end python /home/pi/switch_off_motor.py

 

event_gap 20

 

 

////////////////// CODE FOR switch_on_motor.py ////////////////

import time

import pygame

import sys

import RPi.GPIO as GPIO

RelayPin = 37   # pin11

 

 

def relayActivate(s):

    

    if s == "ON":

        print("Relay is ON")

        GPIO.setmode(GPIO.BOARD)

        GPIO.setup(RelayPin, GPIO.OUT)

        GPIO.output(RelayPin, GPIO.HIGH)

    else:

        print("Relay is OFF")

        GPIO.setmode(GPIO.BOARD)

        GPIO.setup(RelayPin, GPIO.OUT)

        GPIO.output(RelayPin, GPIO.LOW)

        GPIO.cleanup()

 

relayActivate("ON")

 

 

 

 

 

pygame.init() #<-- initializes video

pygame.mixer.init()

pygame.mixer.music.load("/home/pi/dog_bark_long.wav")

pygame.mixer.music.play()

 

 

SONG_END = pygame.USEREVENT + 0

pygame.mixer.music.set_endevent(SONG_END)

 

 

while True:

    for event in pygame.event.get():

        if event.type == SONG_END:

            print("the song ended!")

            pygame.mixer.music.stop()

            pygame.quit()

            sys.exit()

 

///////////////////////////////////////

 

 

 

////////////////// CODE FOR switch_off_motor.py ////////////////

 

import time

import pygame

import sys

import RPi.GPIO as GPIO

RelayPin = 37   # pin11

 

 

def relayActivate(s):

    

    if s == "ON":

        print("Relay is ON")

        GPIO.setmode(GPIO.BOARD)

        GPIO.setup(RelayPin, GPIO.OUT)

        GPIO.output(RelayPin, GPIO.HIGH)

    else:

        print("Relay is OFF")

        GPIO.setmode(GPIO.BOARD)

        GPIO.setup(RelayPin, GPIO.OUT)

        GPIO.output(RelayPin, GPIO.LOW)

        GPIO.cleanup()

 

relayActivate("OFF")

 

 

////////////////////////////////////////////

 

 

After we have changed the settings,Run:

 

sudo motion

 

To kill motion, we can use following commands:

 

sudo su

 

ps -aux | grep motion

 

kill <id of motion>

 

 

Download and install VLC by opening up a new terminal and running:

 

sudo apt-get install vlc

 

Once VLC is set up, we can watch the webcam stream by running:

 

vlc http://localhost:8081/stream.mjpg

 

(NOTE:This should not be run with root(sudo su)or it will show an error)
