This sentrybot by +Emily Rose is one of the many amazing projects you'll find in 'Make: JavaScript Robotics.' http://bit.ly/MakeJSBots It's out now in early release form, so you can pick up the #ebook now, and get the final ebook when it's finished. 

Here's a tiny excerpt:

Physical Security, JavaScript, and You

By Emily Rose

DIY physical security hacking can be challenging, yet also a joy to experience. This chapter will employ an approach of progressive enhancement to the development of a working security prototype that uses the following hardware:

• Arduino
• Laser diode
• 10k Ohm resistor
• Photovoltaic sensor
• HC-SR04 ultrasonic sensor
• 951WG magnetic contact switch

This chapter will be devoid of what you might consider an actual robot. The interesting aspect of implementing physical security systems is that although they may lack innate wow factor or a feeling of futurism, your creations can easily become a natural part of your daily routine.

One example would involve replacing the button of a garage door remote with a transistor wired to an Arduino. A Node.js application can then allow you to send SMS messages to the garage’s dedicated phone number, which would toggle between opening and closing the door. Although completely mundane in its application, this is an example that is useful and easy to accomplish...
