Ground the assembly, put in a 4.7k ohm resistor and a 100 ohm resistor, and hook the wires to the Power Supply ports on the Arduino.

Step 3:

Picture of

Verify and upload the code to the Arduino, and change the volume and tone of the alarm sound. At http://www.arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/Tone2, you can get the code.

Step 4:

Picture of

Hook up a Power Pack to the Arduino using a USB cable, and secure the speaker.

Step 5:

Picture of

Hook the whole assembly, including the Arduino, Breadboard, and Power Pack, to the wall where the mirror will be hung.

Step 6:

Picture of

Hang a mirror over the Arduino assembly, to make sure nobody can see it.

Step 7:

Picture of

Put your special items on the back of the mirror.
