This is my 10th project of #100DaysOfIoT Challenge.

  1. Raspberry Pi 3 Model B – 1
  2. Cable – 1
  3. Pi cam – 1
  4. Ultrasonic Sensor – 1
  5. Female To Feale Wires – 4


RPi <–> Ultrasonic Sensor

  • Connect Raspberry Pi with Ultrasonic Sensor
  • Refer the above pin connections
  • Insert Camera module on slot
  • Setup sSMTP Library

  • If candy thief came close
