AlarmPI is a highly efficient and effective home security system that has been specifically designed to cater to the security needs of your home. This security system is based on Raspberry Pi and it supports both wired sensors (PIR, Magnetic etc.) and wireless sensors through MQTT or Hikvision. The system can be easily controlled with the help of a user-friendly and intuitive Web UI, a highly functional Android Application, or through HTTP & MQTT messages.

When the alarm detects any kind of movement, it immediately triggers a series of events to ensure that your home remains safe and secure at all times. Some of the key events supported by this system include enabling the Siren, sending out an email to the concerned authorities, making VoIP calls, and sending MQTT messages. Moreover, the system is written in python and supports both python 2.7 & python 3.6, making it highly versatile and flexible.

One of the most remarkable features of this security system is that it allows you to have more than one user by simply editing the server.json file in a hassle-free manner. This ensures that everyone in your family can access and control the security system as per their convenience and requirements.

Overall, AlarmPI is an advanced and reliable home security system that provides comprehensive security coverage to ensure that your home and loved ones remain safe and secure at all times.
