Yes, I’m seriously considering doing it. I want privacy and security. I have some preliminary ideas, so I figured I’d lay it all out and see what you all think
- Wired sensors (door/window open sensors, window break sensors, motion sensors)
- Security cameras (I’d prefer not to break the bank on this, mainly just a big enough buffer for whenever the security system is activated and/or there is movement near the doors
- Raspberry Pi as controller
- LTE radio or similar to inform authorities
- Battery backup
- Smoke/CO detector
This is a lot to try to do, but I may be moving into a city (in an area surrounded by high crime neighborhoods), and I want whatever house I have there to be secure. I want to do wired, or at least wireless on a frequency that consumer equipment can’t jam (so no 433MHz). Any ideas on things I need to do, and/or flaws with my plan?
