I am new to this world and I am trying to do a project for my school.
The short version: I want to know if it is possible to turn a webcam on/off using my mega ADK or breadboard.
More context: I am making a laser tripwire security system and I want the webcam to be a part of the system. The idea is that when the laser tripwire is tripped, it will turn the webcam on (at least), and start recording and storing or streaming the footage (if possible), then a servo motor which the webcam is mounted on will rotate it based on the motion sensor signals.
I would appreciate any help.
