    Hi all,

    I started working on a project that involves following:

    • ATmega 328p-u - for detecting motion from Parallax PIR Sensor and sending a signal via Bluetooth.
    • Parallax PIR Sensor
    • Bluetooth module

    The ATmega micro-controller has been programmed to send "HIGH" when the motion signal is triggered. I plan to have a simple C++ program monitor (/dev/rfcomm0 in linux) for any message ("HIGH"). This will then send a command to capture video from a camcorder for about 30 seconds.

    Thoughts? Seems pretty elementary, but I am still learning. Thanks in advance.
