  • Laser pointer any color, - for this instructable i used red. (they are cheap)
  • 100k ohm 5% tolerance resistor.
  • 1 Photo resistor, any size
  • 24 gauge wire.
  • Some Thermal Shrink tube.
  • Mirror squares.

Step 2: Building your laser sensor

Look at the picture below and follow the tool tips

Making a light hood for the Photo resistor is essential! Random light will keep your sensor from detecting a trips if you fail to construct yours correctly.

Step 3: Building your laser

Remove your laser from its housing.
Connect the two power leds, one to the positive, one to the negative, which on this laser was + housing, Negative, spring.

Once the laser is wired up,  Connect it to   Digital pins GND, and pin13

Then secure it, I used a piece of 2x4 and zip ties.

Congrats your laser tripwire is now completely assembled,  Now lets move to programming.
