first post here/new raspberry pi user. I'd like to use the raspberry pi with the FLIR infrared camera in order to create a display-less security camera that will set a wireless alarm if a temperature above 100 degrees fahrenheit is identified in a room. Is this possible to do, and how could I go about it? Thank you in advance!!!

  • I should note that I would like the whole contraption to be battery powered as well. The camera which I plan on using is the lepton: lepton.flir.com/getting-started/lepton-quick-start-raspberry-pi Jan 2, 2020 at 20:44
  • I think the bottle neck might be how to detect more "red" stuff in the picture. I wonder if cheapie hardware RGB colour sensor and Rpi plus Esp32 WiFi controller is a much quick and dirty way than using advanced stuff like OpenCV etc.
