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.
