Getting Started with the Pi Zero W – Motion Dashboard

Raspberry Pi just released what we’ve all been waiting for – the Pi Zero W. A full Linux computer complete with WiFi, bluetooth, and a camera connector! And the best part? It’s only $10.

In honor of this most exciting board, we’ve put together a quick little tutorial on hooking up a streaming motion sensor to your new little Pi Zero W! We’ll go through board setup, connecting the sensor, and creating your own live motion dashboard.

Project level: Beginner
Approximate time to complete: 15 Minutes

In this step-by-step tutorial, you will:

  • connect your Pi Zero W to the internet
  • connect a motion sensor to your Pi
  • stream collected motion data to a cloud visualization service (
  • turn that information into your personal dashboard that you can access on your laptop or mobile device
