In brightest day in blackest night no evil shall escape your sight!

Project description

pypi-version license

Metis is an application to make your home a safer place to live by watching and recording any movements. It also (optionally) supports notifications via Telegram.


  1. Install Metis:

    $ pip install metispi
  2. Run Metis:

    $ [sudo] python -m metis --conf=path/to/config.yaml


    Based on Linux you use, you may or may not need root privileges to run Metis.


It’s mandatory to pass a config file because some of the options are required. Here’s an example:

  motion_sensor:   4  # pin number HC-SR501 attached to
  led_motion_on:  17  # pin number LED "motion detected" attached to
  led_motion_off: 20  # pin number LED "no motions" attached to
  recipient: 000000001

One more thing, a whole telegram node is optional and may be omitted if you are not interested in notifications via Telegram. If you do, you need to create a Telegram bot and pass its token as telegram.token option.
