So these pictures all together are really an activity map. Here, I'm using these pictures to show activity in different rooms of the house. If there's motion in a room, the corresponding frame lights up. No more motion, the frame turns off.
It all sounds a little Big Brother, but as a father of a couple of really young kids it's helpful to know just which room a kid ran off to. I don't live in a big house either. Those little guys are fast!
Step 1: Materials and supplies
- 9"x9" IKEA Ribba frame
- LED string
- Drill w 5/32" bit (I'm using this)
- Belkin WeMo Home Automation Switch and Motion Sensor
Step 2: Make the lit frames
- Tape template to back of frame
- Drill holes with 5/32" bit in all of the circles
- Insert LEDs
- Put back back onto frame
