This document outlines the development and testing process for a home security system called Looking Glass. Looking Glass is disguised as a standard home mirror. This is to prevent intruders from noticing the user’s security system and possibly disabling it.

Looking Glass is secured by a two-step authentication system which comprises of facial recognition and a gesture pattern unlock. The gesture pattern unlock combines object recognition and the traditional touch-screen pattern unlock. Users have the ability to draw a pattern in the air using their hand which is recorded by Looking Glass. This recording is then compared to a stored pattern.

Looking Glass monitors sensors which can be attached to doors and windows around a user’s home. If a sensor is triggered, a notification is displayed on the Looking Glass
