Security-Camera with Esp32 Cam, PIR and Telegram Bot

The camera sends you a photo as soon as motion has been detected or takes photos when you request it with telegram command.

I devised this project to create a smart security system, without the need for external input devices, such as a numeric keypad for alarm activation, etc.

In fact, the project allows you to manage the esp32 directly from your mobile phone or PC via a telegram bot.

This simple home surveillance system allows you to receive a photo on telegram when movement is detected via the PIR sensor, to request an instant photo from the esp32, turn on or off the integrated led on the esp or to arm and disarm the PIR sensor.. All through simple commands of the telegram bot. For the creation of the telegram bot there are many online guides that explain how to create it starting from the botFather.”
