IDEA

As mentioned the lead will be using a microcontroller so Video surveillance is out.
Now what we can do is use motion sensors. If the shop is an average one then number of motion sensors usage will be less. The controllers will be connected to both GSM module and the sensors.
As soon as any distubance is detected the microcontroller will trigger the gsm and send a message or something to the owner. OR what we can do is to connect the gsm to a server which will process the data (if there is a breach disturbance) and accordingly set the alarm on the owner’s phone. The app will always be polling the server state (Dont know much about the app though) and as soon as something happens the app will get an alarm code and start to buzz/alarming sound on the phone itself so as to wake up the owner even when he is in deep sleep.
There will be other “features” to it viz sending sms, calling police(dont know if it will work), calling out to the security guard (chowkidaar kind of) or something like those.
The implementation is simple and could be done using parsing the gsm data.

If there is other motion detection scheme then the best one will be chosen.

Okay. Nice Idea. Need more ideas. Is the project in progress or just about to start?
I very much understand you Aman. Yeah, image processing that brings in the idea of the camera module.

Yes a camera module. Because SBCs have inbuilt USB Port, a simple USB Camera could also be used. If multiple point surveillance is needed, a USB Hub could connect other cameras. The only downside is the cost will go up, but mall owners are rich right?
Don’t know about the project status. The team leader hasn’t made any move yet. So I can t say …

Hello Everyone …Sorry I was busy and couldn’t work on this project . Good to see interest in this project from all of u … So What should we do to make this project simple and effective??? I read many suggestions in comments and yeah really impressive ones …

In my point of view there should be 2,3 types of security for shop or mall by this project
1: Night Time Alarm or Buzzer whenever motion is detected at doors or windows
2: Call to Owner’s Mobile Immediately and also to some backup person and response from owner in this form of message containing password, if password matches it should create something that the thief is afraid of and now u all should think what we can do at this point??
