First thing's first, you are going to need ThinkGeeks's Dummy Security Camera with Blinking LED
. It's only slightly
essential to this project.
While you are waiting for the camera to arrive, drive down to the local hardware store and pick up these supplies:
- A few 5mm and 4mm screws; it never hurts to have some extra just in case. You will need two 4mm and one 5mm screw for this project.
- Two 4mm nuts.
- One 5mm nut.
- Two 4mm washers.
- A metal baseplate.
- 5 and 4mm taps.
- A #30 and #19 drill bit.
- Optional- Velcro.
- Optional- additional screws.
There you are, sitting on the couch, eyes glazed over, half watching an all day Dirty Jobs
marathon. Suddenly, just as Mike Rowe obtains a mouth full sewage, your dog lets out a startled Woof!
Ears perked, head tilted, she listens intently. Slowly, she gets up, then bolts to the door. Her initial woof escalated to rapid barks. Could it be? It is! The delivery truck! You accept the package and open it with mounting excitement. After what seemed like months, years even, it's here.
Now we can proceed.
