Arduino meets DSC


I made this animation using R and the animation package.  The data was collected by linking my Arduino to my DSC alarm system and capturing the motion sensors (no other hardware required :).  The load readings was logged using an Arduino based Energy Logger.

Join me on Tuesday at 18:30 for a talk on this.  I need some help mapping the commands and testing on various flavours of DSC – so if you have an Arduino and a DSC alarm and are curious ….


Because I am capturing the data live, I can also access it via my browser live – the picture is updated using some simple ajax and html5 canvas:

Works great on my Android!
