Motion Following Motorized Camera Base

Do the blindspots in your static security camera system cause you to sleep uneasily at night?  With this motion tracking camera system designed by Lindsay you can remove blind spots and ensure that your cameras will always be recording any intruders!  The project uses a motion sensor and servo to rotate a camera to ensure it is always facing the action. To get started on this cool project check out the following link. Full instructions, schematics and source code have been provided so you should have everything you need to get started.

If you are looking for an Arduino board to work on this hack why not check out the Freetronics “Eleven” Arduino Compatible Board.  


The Eleven is just like an Arduino Uno (and 100% compatible), however the Freetronics team have made a number of improvements to the Arduino Uno design such as adding in a prototyping area, using a micro-USB connector and many more. These improvements mean that the Eleven is as easy to use as possible and is of the highest quality! To find out more about the fantastic Freetronics Eleven check out the following link. The Eleven has just come back into stock so order soon to avoid missing out!
