I would like to start up DIY pi prodject. My idea is to attach a small sensor to my pi (maybe a PIR motion sensor, a few quid off ebay), and a camera. I would like it so whenever the motion sensor is set off the camera will boot up and start to film (with the time and date on the recording) , i would like to install it in my house for safety. And also a wireless link to a laptop or monitor. Any help or ideas? I would like to make it AS CHEAP AS POSSABLE. Any help is much appreciated. I have hardly any programming experience. I am a beginner,
Many many thanks!
