refuse bin alert

Post by ronhud » Fri Feb 23, 2018 7:30 am

I have been thinking of getting into the raspberry pi world and now I have a real problem to solve. Someone keeps putting their rubbish in my refuse bin! I would like a setup of a small discreet battery powered wifi 'signaller' that would be fixed to the bin lid so that when it is opened a signal is sent to a raspberry pi in the house. If that could then start recording a stream from a camera for say 2 minutes I might find out who is using my bin.

I have previous programming experience - object pascal, java,c++ but I cannot find a suitable small sensor. Any help will be greatly appreciated by this 82 year old computer enthusiast.
