In this project, I am going to show you how to detect someone stealing your valuable stuff. If detected, PHPoC sends a notification via Gmail and makes an alert sound and light.DemonstrationDetecting Something is Taken Away
To detect treasure present or not, I put the treasure on the force sensor. This sensor let us know how heavy the treasure is. If output value of sensor is below a threshold, it means the treasure is not present and someone took it away.
