Raspberry PI 12V Alarm System

By Nicholas O'Sullivan

So, I believe I’ve finally finished our Home Alarm System. I haven’t went for an off the shelf cheap solution. Rather, I’ve opted for a fully cabled and customizable setup using a Raspberry Pi and a PiFace Digital 2.

Hopefully at some point in the future, I will publish a YouTube video on the system so that others could implement it.

Above is a basic guide to how the system is configured and wired.
