Turned A Dollar Store Dummy Camera Into IOT Smart Device :)

Hi All,

Just wanted to share this fun project I worked on where I took a dollar store dummy camera and turned it into a IOT smart device.

Dummy Camera Into Smart Device

It sends me notifications by text message of visitors at the side gate of my house with date / time stamp. I am using a Wemos D1 mini programmed through the Arduino IDE. Adafruit IO and IFTTT are responsible for the notification and logging of all visitors!

Hope you guys enjoy the build and the video!
