Makers, hobbyists and Raspberry Pi enthusiasts interested in building their very own home surveillance system complete with notification system may be interested in this excellent Raspberry Pi project which uses a motion sensor, camera and utilises the Telegram bot service.
“This tutorial shows how to build a home surveillance system with a RaspberryPI, a motion sensor, a camera and a Telegram bot.How it works : When a movement is detected, the application records a video that is sent to your phone by the bot. Once installed, the monitoring system is managed from your smartphone with the bot’s commands. The system is started by a systemd service activated at boot time.”

/stop : stop the home monitoring system
/status : show the status of the monitoring system
/photo : take a picture
/video time= : records a video, argument time defines the duration of the recording
/clean : remove all files in video folder
/help : show help
