Internet of Things developers Naran have published a new Raspberry Pi project via the Instructables website which provides details on how you can create a motion detecting music system using the awesome mini PC.
The project harnesses the power of the Raspberry Pi 3 or 2 and uses a PIR sensor together with an external speaker to create a music system that can be triggered when it recognises motion. Watch the quick video below to see a demonstration of the final project.
With this project, you will be able to automate a welcoming music for either your smart home or your smart office. As long as someone is around, the music will keep playing your favorite playlist at home or a welcome music to greet your customers or business partners while they wait in the lobby of your office.
• Start music once detecting any motion around
• Keep playing as long as there is someone
• Control your speaker via a TelegramBot
• Create a smooth atmosphere in the room with an audio automation
This Instructables requires no special skills, very little equipment and can be done in less than an hour. It’s perfect for anyone who begins in home automation or an aficionado looking for new ideas and a powerful smart home OS.
