Introduction: Alarming Mirror
This project allows you to keep your valuables somewhat safe.
Step 1: 1: the Frame/box
I used a 1 ft by 1 ft box because that is how big our mirror was that we need later on in the process.
Step 2: 2: Painting (optional)
I did paint the box black just to add a touch to make it "cooler".
Step 3: 3: Rear Mirror Support
I cut out 2, 1ft wooden planks to hold the back mirror in place.
Step 4: 4: Rear Mirror
I placed the mirror under and screwed the planks around it for extra support.
Step 5: 5: Hinges
I didn't want to make a boring wooden door for my hiding place. Instead I used another mirror on top so you can look at yourself as you walk by. I glued the hinges on the mirror and screws the other half onto the frame.
Step 6: 6: the Arduino Alarm
The next thing you'll need is an Arduino. Arduinos will cost around $25.00 online and there is a website that I specially used for my Arduino. The alarm shall go off every time you open the box.

Step 7: 7: Attaching the Arduino
The Arduino has to be somewhere inside the box (obvi). Every time you open the box, the Arduino will make a buzzing noise. Not much of an alarm, but it works.
We have a be nice policy.
Please be positive and constructive.
