Raspberry Script to auto turn on and off Monitor Screen using PIR motion sensor

You will need a PIR sensor like this

PIR motion sensor

Make a file named pirMotionDetect1.py

Place the script pirMotionDetect1.py in /usr/local/bin and make it executable

sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/pirMotionDetect1.py

Now make another script with name pirMotionDetect.sh. This will start/stop our service at boot time.

Place this file in /etc/init.d and make it executable.

sudo chmod +x /etc/init.d pirMotionDetect.sh

Now we'll register the script to run on boot.

sudo update-rc.d pirMotionDetect.sh defaults

As the script is not running at this time, we'll start it

sudo /etc/init.d/pirMotionDetect.sh start


All the best!
