A mini motion sensor alarm to solve your 'petty pilfering’ problems.
In their mission to help people 'live life secure’ ADT have turned their attention to the phenomenon of ‘petty pilfering’. Their research revealed that one in four Brits have been the victim of ‘petty pilferers’. Stationery and teabags were the items most likely to go missing at work, with food and toiletries the favourites to go walkabout at home. To put an end to this heinous nationwide crime spree, Unity, ADT’s communications agency, asked for our help.
By combining a motion sensor camera, Raspberry PI microprocessor, rechargeable power pack, and 4G technology, we built MAIA - Motion Activated Identification Alarm. Once you’ve received your alarm, you register its ID number with your email address and mobile number. Then stick it in a prime spying spot for protecting your valuable goods - on your desk or inside the biscuit cupboard. When the pilferer makes their next move, the motion sensor camera will instantly send a picture of their thievery to your mobile.
You can then shop them to the police. Or execute a suitably alternative petty revenge.
