First things first, big shout out to Action_Owl, and KipKay.    This is instructable was idealistically created by KipKay, and Bones by Action_Owl.  I adapted the code and concept for something a little easier to use on my windows PC.  You can find their instructables with the following links

Here is a list of items you will need
  • Soldering Tools
  • A PC with USB ports, and internet connection
  • Email address.
  • Autoit Scripting language - Download here. - http://www.autoitscript.com/cgi-bin/getfile.pl?autoit3/autoit-v3-setup.exe
  • Adruino Uno rev 3
  • 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.
