Using a RPi as a security camera

Interesting build. Myself, I am still fond of Wyze cameras, thought some changes have me a little concerned. https://www.makeuseof.com/create-a-multi-camera-cctv-system-with-raspberry-pi-and-motioneyeos/

Interesting farm platform (acorn)

The author is pretty colorful. Its using an ardiuno/RPi combo for controlling it, right now its just the platform and its goal is to automate farming. I think this looks interesting, but has a ways to go.

Nice Magic Mirror build with RPi

Nice build, but expensive. The author didn’t cheap out on the build. I think he has at least $200 into this. https://www.instructables.com/Build-Your-Own-Google-Home-Enabled-Smart-Mirror-in/

Nice $10 RPi clone comes with a built in display

Pretty neat clone, it has a built in display and is like a RPI Pico. The issue I have with clones like this is support can be a bit spotty, and not very long term. https://www.tomshardware.com/news/raspberry-pi-pico-alternative-gets-a-screen

Another porch pirate preventor build

This time from a Canadian, who tried to build a prevention instead of the revenge based ones. I like the logic he put in to determine if a package was dropped off and to arm the system. https://www.tomshardware.com/news/raspberry-pi-package-security-system
