I know this isn't what you asked for, but GeoVision (ultra-kludgey but high tech & cool DVR, you'll pay hundreds for it though) has a function that does that.

Maybe the video will help you with an idea, maybe not smiley-wink

It's not a big deal but I *think* I may have seen watches that can also act as caller ID.  Why not clip the phone to my jacket while skiing?  Water & loss are the two biggest reasons, plus I use a Galaxy Note that's pretty big.  It's just an idea I had today while skiing, & something I wish I had ~2 years ago, the last time I really did much resort skiing.

could you suggest a good tutorial if it's not too much to ask?  (TIA if you do)

Have you looked into the new batteries made for RC cars?  I can't help you with the math but maybe an idea:

Here's a pretty nice charger (imho), I have both this & the X4 http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/WTI0001P?I=LXBJBY&P=8

I guess I'm really not sure where to begin....  I should continue reading smiley

So zone 1 trip trip trip trip (1,2,3,4), I just want that to show up on a display.  I'll keep at my arduino cookbook & hopefully come back with some better questions smiley

Thanks for the link to the bare bones 'nano' board too.  I have a bunch of stuff coming from deal extreme, including bluetooth, network, relays, and a few different types of displays (7 segment, some with buttons, just all kinds of stuff) to play with.

I already have 2 displays - one's a LCD touch screen:  http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008FWSG3S/ref=oh_details_o08_s00_i00

and a 20x4:  http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003B22UR0/ref=oh_details_o06_s00_i00

I really don't know jack about any of this yet,  so far I've just been typing sketches verbatim (for the most part) out of the books.

Here's my 2nd post smiley no I'm not completely lazy, just mostly.

My second project I'd like to make would be a wearable display I could connect to my ski jacket to see who's calling or maybe even read a text without having to dig for my phone.

Any ideas for this?  I have other projects in mind but I have a lot more to learn so I'm just playing around right now.

Thanks for any good ideas smiley-wink

Hi, new here. 

I've worked my way most of the way through 'Programming Arduino Getting Started with Sketches', & just started working on 'Arduino Cookbook'.

First project:  I'd like to make a device that displays how many times motion has been detected in a few (undetermined # of) zones.  I.E.  Zone 1 (side of house), Zone 2 (back yard), Zone 3 (front porch).

I'd like to have it show up on a LCD & if something happens when it shouldn't then I can review the CCTV.

Sensors would be PIR, & the device will ideally be a self contained unit (arduino & display in a custom housing).
