Might sound weird but "dog barking" via Blue Iris

Post by TickingMind » Mon Apr 15, 2019 7:55 pm

I am not sure if this is even possible but I would love to have a trigger setup so if no one is home and a interior camera detects motion, my Amazon Echo will start barking like a dog. Maybe IFTTH? I already asked Echo to bark like a dog and she does so, so it's not a "skill" you have to download. Might make for a good deterrent.

At that point, the burglar has already wiggled door knobs, rang doorbell, checked windows and forcibly entered the house through a door or window without hearing a bark. Having audio of a guard dog begin after the perp is inside and moving will give him a short scare but be quickly ruled out as real. It's better than nothing, but a real dog and/or a burglar alarm would be more effective. That said the indoor cameras could have an alert configured to sound from the pc speakers and a sound file of a dog barking placed in the blue iris sounds to choose from. I bet a burglar alarm recording would be even more effective.

Maybe the exterior cameras might be more effective for the sound to go off but good point. Yes, agreed!

I have a led 2500 lumen motion detector lights on my front door. Whenever someone approaches the front door, the whole neighborhood lights up! lol

I have something similar setup, but to notify me when something/someone enters my driveway and approaches my front door.
I have an older MJPEG ptz camera set to low fps & video, with an external powered speaker plugged into it. Set it up as a group 'Alarm1'.
Now I can have any camera trigger group 'Alarm1', and the camera will play any sound I want thru the amp'ed speaker. The speaker is in my living room.
When I don't want to hear those alarms, I just disable the 'Alarm1' camera.

Place the speaker next to the front door and have that 'Alarm1' camera play a dog growling and barking... there's your dinner!
