Help ... Is Raspberry Pi a good option for my project

Recommended Posts

Hey there,


I am new user here and I was wondering if anyone of you can help me.

I have a project where i am suppose to make a camera which would record only once it detects motion.


To detect motion I was thinking of using a PIR sensor but i am not sure how to make the camera record. Can I use the Raspberry Pi board to connect the camera and record once the PIR sensor detect motion. Is it possible.


I have never used Raspberry Pi so I am not sure if this would be a good project to use it.


Thanks in advance,
