The electronics in the Air Wick Freshmatic Compact i-Motion air freshener can be used for a number of projects. If you search "PIR", which stands for Passive InfraRed, you can see how similar sensors have been used by others in instructables. Some ideas: 1. A camera that is triggered by motion. Hunters use these to scout areas. They are also used for car and home security. 2. The output of the PIR sensor can be used to drive a transistor set around an intercom system's talk button. This allows you to listen in whenever someone is at your door. You can also use it as the basis of an automatic doorbell. 3. They can be used in a system to count traffic or foot traffic in front of your house. 4. They can be used to detect pets so as to release food/water or to trigger an alert to scare the animal away from an area. 5. They can be used to turn lights on in a room if a person enters. 6. If 3 of the sensors were setup in an area and the sensor's analog signal was used with ADC to detect the strength of the IR disturbance for each sensor, you could determine the location of a person in the area using trilateration. This would be tricky. 7. They can be used in a number of Halloween props to initiate some action when people approach. 8. It could be used to create "music" in response to movement in the room. 9. I saw one application where the air freshener was replaced with an accelerant and used to shoot flame when someone came by. I do not recommend this. I hope this gives you some ideas.
