Simple Home Security with Raspberry Pi and DropBox

Built using a Raspberry Pi and a Playstation Eye camera, this budget security camera system is a great way to protect your house and spy on your pets whenever you are out and about. It takes shots every 5 mins, then records continuously if any movement is detected. A cron job that runs every minute triggers a python script that synchronises the folder of pics with your folder at Dropbox, which gives you global access.
