Mobile Video streaming Surveillance System With SMS Alert
In the current times, Surveillance security system becomes the best solution to overcome more crime cases in the world and also for house intrusion problem, with the real-time monitoring it has become an effective security system. As we know, there are many types surveillance security system which are too expensive and difficult to use such as for Closed-circuit television (CCTV). The main problem being: The cost of hiring the required security is out of range for most people. When a security breach takes place, unless the owner is within the premise, they are the last to be contacted which more often than not happens to be too late for any action the owner may want to take. Sometimes a breach is by a relative who unknowingly walked into the trap. Since the owner is not there to verify, they are incarcerated for no reason. A human as an alarm or to respond to sound an alarm is a huge gamble for where security and urgent response is needed. The main objective of this project is to develop a cost effective web application that allows live streaming on the net and on mobile phones, a mobile SMS alert system and a remote response to the intrusion by the owner. This will empower the owner of the security system to view real-time event on the happenings; also be able to make judgment on the kind of action to take. This approach applies emerging open source technologies and proprietary technologies and demonstrates the effectiveness of our design approach via actual Implementation. The SMS alert is activated through a motion sensor. The motion sensor used in this project is a camera motion sensor. The project is a prototype which has been successfully designed live stream from webcam, motion sensor to detect any movement and send an SMS while the camera continues to monitor the entire scene. It also provides an alarm sounding system that can be activated remotely by the user depending on the judgment made upon viewing a video stream. The owner of the system has the liberty to activate or deactivate the streaming system. A recorded video can be replayed for reference. The streaming of recorded videos uses Video on Demand. One of the key things noted in the development process is that the webserver to host the system should be local at the proximity of the secure premise. The type of phone used must be flash 8 or above enabled. Further development is needed on the alarm trigger to a more sensitive motion sensor than a camera. A thick mobile client can be developed to be used for better control of access to the system. The system will be more appropriate if it is flash independent. The ISP need to embrace live streaming and provide facilities for it.
