HA motion eye controlled remote cat laser

I used a raspberry pi, H-bridge, pan tilt, raspberry pi camera and three laser modules to make a remote controllable cat toy controlled via Home assistant and motion eye

Currently only one laser is used but three are installed because I could not resist the possibility of making a predator style targeting triangle. The controls make use of motion eye’s ability to configure it to add buttons which call shell scripts. I simply made the shell scripts execute simple pyphon scripts to move the camera or turn the laser on/off.

I plan to make a nodejs application for a more streamlined control of the movement and macro recording
