    Motion Detection Alarm System

    Thanks for trying the tutorial. It has been a few years and we are sorry we have not been able to keep the tutorial up to date. Thanks for pointing out an error. The problem was in the initSMS method where it read a value from the config file (it is uppercase sensitive and it had the wrong case). We have now fixed the problem so if you download the project again, it should work. Again. Thank you very much for letting us know:). Please don´t hesitate to contact us again.

    Hi LarsThanks for trying the tutorial. It has been a long time since we uploaded it and we are sorry we have not been able to keep it up to date. Thank you for pointing out an error! The problem was in the init SMS method that uses parameters from the config file. It is case-sensitive and it used the wrong case. We have now fixed the problem. You can download the project again and it should work. Please let us know if it is still a problem. Thank you very much for letting us know:)

    HiThanks for trying out Reactive Blocks:) I think the pi cam does not behave like a USB camera out of the box. Depending on your precise Raspberry Pi setup, the Pi Cam Module (v1 or v2, standard or noir) will be recognised differently. The newer raspbian OS versions have the V4L2 driver activated by default, in this case there is a chance that OpenIMAJ (which our library is using) will detect and access the camera correctly. (the discussion regarding the V4L2 driver: https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=62364)

    Thanks for trying it out! And thank you for the nice feedback. The problem with Twilio is that the library needs to be updated. We have the same problem here but we have not had the chance to do anything about it yet. Thanks for pointing it out. WE will either 1. update the library ASAP or 2. make a note in the instructable unitll we have updated. Thanks!

    Hi. Are you waiting long enough between the motion appearances? Right now the limiter block is set to 5 minutes which means the application will ignore motions detected within that period. You can change that time interval by right-clicking the limiter block and choose parameters and generics. Try reducing it to, let say 30 000 (which is 30 sec). Let me know if this fixed the problem. Cheers!

    Hi. sure you have network from the R-Pi to gmail.com? Usually when there are problems with sending email it is what is described on the bottom of this tutorial: http://reference.bitreactive.com/tutorials/send-email.html. But your error message is different. Make sure you have network from R-Pi. I will need a more complete log-file to see what the error could be.

    I have not tested the native camera. I think it will but if not, it should not be to hard to change the code to make it work. Cheers!

    Hi. I would be happy to get more info on the errors you are receiving. Regarding the late emails: You can change the application to send photos immediately. However this application was made so that not too many emails are sent. It should not be too hard to modify. You could also make a building block that sends notifications to the pusbullet app:)

    OK:)We used the code from twilio.com (you will find it under documents). You will also find the code if you double click the building block and look into the method.

    Is it written in Java?

    HiI don´t understand your question. Are you thinking about using anything from this project? If not, I don´t think I can help you as I don´t have any experience with Matlab.

    HiDo you use a camera for face detection? Do you have the algorithm for face detection? If you have the Java code, you can make it into a building block. If it is written in C you can still access the code.Anne
