Raspberry Pi LESSON 37: Raspberry Pi Security System


In this lesson we add an audible alarm to our security system. I am connecting to a Bluetooth speaker, and then using the pygame library to play an alarm sound. The pygame library will play any .mp3 file, so search the internet and find a suitable alarm sound for your system. I amusing an air raid siren, and really like it! Below for your convenience is the code we develop in this video:


Improved Gesture Recognition in Python and MediaPipe

In this video lesson we show you how you can improve the accuracy of your gesture recognition program developed in the last lesson. We do this by normalizing the hand landmarks distance matrix to a standard size. By doing this, you get accurate results independent of the distance your hand is from the camera. For your convenience, I include the code below which we develop in this lesson. Enjoy!

Putting Text, Rectangles and Circles on Images in OpenCV for Windows

In the video lesson above we show how to add text, rectangles and circles to video frames using OpenCV. Below we include the code with we developed in this lesson. Enjoy!


ARDUINO TUTORIAL 68: Make a Remote Controlled RGB LED with Brightness and Color Control

RGB LED Remote Control
This is our Remote Controlled RGB LED

In this lesson we take you through step-by-step instructions on creating a remotely controlled RGB LED.  This is the solution to the Homework Assignment given in Tutorial 68. It is important for you to try and complete this on your own before looking at my solutions.

We are building this with parts from our Elegoo Kit , and our actual build is using an Arduino Nano, which allows the project to be built on a single breadboard. You can get the neat jumper wires HERE.

This video steps you through our build.

Below is the code we developed in this video.
