Who’s There? – Home Automation with RaspberryPi & Arduino

I built this project/gadget to solve a problem where people (contractors, gardeners, neighbors) would come by my house when I was not around. And I really wanted to know who had come by and when. So, I used the RaspberryPi and Arduino to build my home gadget for $90 which sends me almost instantaneous notification on my cell phone. I'm modifying this to send me email so that costs are kept low. I would use the prize money to teach girls programming via codechix.org.
