I have recently moved house and there are PIR sensors in most of the downstairs rooms. These are connected to a broken burglar alarm control panel. I have disconnected the alarm itself, but left the 12V power supply to the PIRs.
I would like to connect the PIR outputs to an Arduino and then make a HTTP POST to a local webservce everytime the NC output from the PIR changes to NO.
I am VERY new to Arduino and haven’t even yet purchased my first board, but wonder if this could be a viable Arduino project to get me started?
Can anyone offer any pointers or recommend hardware? I’ve been looking at the POE powered boards.
