We designed a secure web-connected security system that, when alarm triggered, allows the monitoring person/company to remotely conduct a video and audio surveillance of the property. To guard against misuse and protect the privacy of the property occupants, the system is triggered only when an alarm is set by an intruder. When triggered, the system transmits real time audio and video feeds via the web from cameras and microphones installed on the property. The monitoring company y/person can see and hear what’s going on inside the property and can direct the proper authorities depending on the situation. The system was prototyped for less than $400 and was successfully tested and shown to be secure and reliable.
