How To Build A Wireless Motion Alarm

effects movement, sends a signal to the receiver and warns you with an LED indicator that’s a silent alarm. Let’s start with the things that you’ll need for the prototyping stage you’ll need two  no boards, a PR sensing module, a transmitter and receiver module. Up here pair of switches, an LED and a 470 ohm resistor. Let’s talk about the P IR sensor, the module is equipped with a chip some components and some knobs for adjustment. It uses an infrared sensor for detecting motion, using the module is quite simple. It has three. One for the positive one for the negative and the middle is the digital output to show you how it breaks I’m connecting the positive end of the module to the positive real of the breadboard and the negative 10 to the negative real on the breadboard. To show you how the digital ALEKS which is a module behaves and connecting an LED and a 470 ohm resistor in series from the digital output to the ground or the negative pin the module has an internal regulator so you can supply five to 20 volts to it. I set my bench power supply to five volts senses, the  operating voltage. As for the adjustment knobs the right knob is for the delay, turning the knob clockwise with give it a longer trigger duration and turning it counterclockwise with given a shorter duration, the delay selection would range from 0.3 seconds to five minutes. Take note that the slightest turn of the knob with drastically increase the delay since you are dealing with primitive time values in seconds. Here’s what I mean.


20 minutes. So if you want to have the fastest refresh rate, you might want to turn it all the way counterclockwise for the shortest duration. As for the left knob it’s used for the distance range detection, turning it clockwise so it gives you the farthest detection range and turning it counterclockwise and give you the shortest detection rate. Here’s an example with a non shooting, all the way counterclockwise, turning it all the way clockwise gives you the maximum range detection of seven meters. And just to show you how sensitive it is the sensor detects motion the slightest movement from afar. You might want to reduce the range by a tad to prevent false detection, usually tune it 132 away from the maximum setting.


Now let’s talk about the transmitter and the receiver modules. This is one of the cheapest radio frequency modules you can find for Arduino. It has a transmission frequency of 433 megahertz and the transmission range of 100 feet. The one on the left is the transmitter and the one on the right is the receiver for this cheap module transmission Thea is just one way, with the help of an Arduino library you can transmit characters or strings of data to an Arduino, for the Trinity, you have one digital pin. The Middleton is for the positive end of a five volt power source, and the pin on the other hand goes to the ground pin of the power source.


Same goes as Forbes receiver, therefore turns on the receiver but they’re actually just the ground pin that goes to the ground of your power source, both pins in the middle are just tied together to a digital pin. And the last pin goes to the positive five volts of a power source module requires an antenna, but the antennas doesn’t come with it when you buy the module. So you have to make it by yourself antenna pin on the transmitter is labeled will ask for the receiver, it’s over here without label for the Do It Yourself antenna I’m basing this on a quarter with the length of 165 millimeters for addition using a piece of solid wire to use a ruler to carefully measure the length of the wire. Don’t take it too far off from the given the length to the effect of the range.


Depends the transmission range up to 100 meters to be needing two antennas one for the transmitter and one for the receiver of the other and then send it to the antenna to the transmitter and soldering antenna to the receiver.Now your transmitter for wiring devices quite simple, just follow this diagram, the VCC pin of the receiver goes to the five volt pin of the Arduino. While the ground to the receiver goes to the ground 10 numbers. No, you can connect either of the two middle pins of the receiver to digital two of their three no for the indicator you can replace the LED with a buzzer. But it’s become a silent alarm so I went with an LED. If you’re going with an LED you’ll have to serve 470 ohm resistor in series then connected led to pin 13 and the grounds are there.


Now let’s assemble the transmitter. Here’s a diagonal wiring. Let’s start by connecting the VCC pin on the motion sensor to third Reno’s five volt pin. The sensors digital output goes to pin number two of the Arduino. While the ground of the Arduino goes to the sensors ground pin the VCC pin of the transmitter module goes to a five volt and the ground pin of the transmitter goes to the ground fans that are the data pin of the transmitter goes to pin number three of the Arduino.
