Building a Smart Security Camera with Raspberry Pi Zero, Java and AWS

A key advantage of the IoT is that it enables you to expand the potential of constrained devices by giving them access to the computational power of The Cloud.

In this session I’ll share the story of how I transformed a lowly Raspberry Pi Zero webcam into a Smart Security Camera (with motion detection, threat detection and alert notifications) by combining open source software with cloud-based image analysis.

Attendees can expect a short introduction on how to set up their own Raspberry Pi Zero webcam and a demonstration of how I used Java with a range of AWS API’s (including Rekognition, Lambda and Step Functions) to help my smart security camera distinguish between an unwanted guest and the neighbor’s cat.

What will the audience learn from this talk?
Attendees can expect a short introduction on how to set up their own Raspberry Pi Zero webcam and a demonstration of how I used Java with a range of AWS API’s (including Rekognition, Lambda and Step Functions) to help my smart security camera distinguish between an unwanted guest and the neighbor’s cat. They’ll also learn about alternatives that can potentially remove the need for AWS in this solution.

Does it feature code examples and/or live coding?
The talk has very little code, and no live coding. But there will be demo’s!
