Introduction: LASER BURGLAR ALARM

Hi guys..!!
this is my 1st easy cheap n simple instructabel 
u need following components for laser burglar alarm-
1. LDR or photocell
2.printed circuit board
3.soldering equipment
4.2N3904 transistor
5.1000uF 35V capacitors
6.wires
7.laser diode
8. 9V battery and battery terminal
9. 9V buzzer
10. 5K( or more)  trim pot


n ur ready to go...........!!!!!!!!!!!! 
 

Step 1: Placing Components

Instructions

Things You'll Need:
1 650nm 5mw 12X30mm laser 1 3.2v AC adapter 1 1000uF 35v capacitor 1 5K variable resistor 1 2N3904 transistor 1 12v siren or buzzer - 102dB 2 small project boxes 1 black plastic tube 1 photocell 1 IC board 1 9v battery and clip Tape or adhesive velcro strips Hot glue
1
Connect a photocell to a 5K resistor. This will pick up the laser light and enable the alarm.
2

Use a 2N3904 transistor to link the resistor, a 1000uF 35v capacitor, a 12v siren and a 9v battery clip. The attached schematic should demonstrate how the parts come together. Use an IC board to hold them in place and make sure the board is small enough to fit into a project box. Do not connect the battery yet.
3
Cut a small hole into the side of the project box big enough to fit the photo cell. Glue a short (1-inch) length of black plastic tube on top of the hole. This will protect the photocell from any ambient light.
4
Mount the photo cell carefully in the length of tube, running the wires back in to the project box. Mount the IC board in the project box using hot glue, making sure there is enough room for all the components.
5
Cut 3 small holes in a second project box. The first should be large enough to hold a 5mw 12X30mm laser, the second should be large enough to hold a toggle switch, and the third should be just large enough to fit the wires from an AC adaptor.
6
Slide the positive wire from a 3.2v AC adaptor into the hole and connect it to the positive outlet from the laser. Positive wires are often marked by red insulation.
7
Connect the negative wires from the laser and the AC adaptor into a standard toggle switch. Secure them all inside the project box with glue.
8
Use tape, glue, or strips of velcro to mount the two project boxes on either side of the door you wish to protect.
9
Connect a 9v battery to the first project box and replace it in the exact position is was in.
10
Turn the laser on with the toggle switch and make sure it lines up perfectly with the photo cell. The alarm is now activated. If anything breaks the beam, the siren will go off.

Step 2: Testing Your System

1st test ur circuit on breadboard..!!
adjust sensitivitiy of 5k trim pot so that system works at day along with night
finally test ur circuit by braking laser beam on LDR. if the buzzer ring ur system is working....
now solder all the components on printed circuit board according to the given circuit diagram and protect ur home with ur own cheap burglar alarm.....!!!

i have made the whole circuit, and there are no connection problems, but as soon as i plug in the battery the siren starts, even when the laser is pointed on the ldr.
can any1 please help?

GOOD PRANJAL I M ALSO FROM KOLHAPUR..........WHERE DO U LIVE IN MH09 ?
WHERE AND WHAT R U STUDYING NOW ?

I HAVE DESIGNED THE PCB FOR THESE PROJECT.........IF U GIVE ME U R EMAIL ID THEN I WILL MAIL U THE PCB SCHEMATIC........DO KNOW HOW TO MAKE PCB'S ?

ALSO I HAVE UPLOADED MY FIRST INSTRUCTABLE - "THE SIMPLE WATER DETECTOR EVER" ON THIS SITE!!! U CAN SEE IT..............

i live in mangalwar peth..
wer do u live?
m studin siploma in E&TC 1st year in govt. polytechnic kolp.


i hv sm idea abt copper clad PCB's...
WHAT R U STUDYING NOW ?

i made solar power mobile charger, lie detector, audio amplifier....
( i nt yet gt solar panel for this........)

rply..

GOOD.........I LIVE IN DEVKAR PANAND AND I AM DOING B.E. IN INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY AT BHARATI VIDYAPEETH'S ENGINEERING COLLEGE (currently appearing T.E. ) AND ELECTRONICS IS JUST MY FAVOURATE HOBBY NOT A STDY PART..........

I HAVE ALSO MADE AUDIO AMPLIFIER USING TDA2822M.......

AND WHY R U NOT GOT THE SOLAR PANEL FOR U R PROJECT ?

author
Pranjal+Joshi made it!(author)2011-12-12

k..
tel me hw to make pcb at home.. plz
n der is 1 problem also, wen i conect my cel to charger it shows bad charger contact aftr 1 minit.. wt can i do? n y dis is cause??? plz rply

author
ajinkyadixit made it!(author)2011-12-12

i can tell u pcb making plz give me u r email id and cell phone no also if u have


actually the solar cells as charger for mobile phones never provides the constant / stable current and the problem that u r facing is may be either u r ckt problem or the type of solar panel used..............

Mobiles need 0.7A to charge so a 9V battery or a solar panel is not a good option. I had tried it but my mobile charges and then stops, again it starts n this goes on. Btw I'm from Mumbai

you didn't have to take kipkay's picture

author
KevinAlien26 made it!(author)2013-02-25

I think all in all it is just a picture, things were different in this instructable than kipkays. I think we should just note that it is after all an instructable but I think all it is missing is credit to where credit is due. Beyond that there is nothing wrong with using a picture that's already been taken.

If you want a reset switch, where do i plant it?:(

author
Pranjal+Joshi made it!(author)2012-05-17

Why you want a rest?? The buzzer will stop automatically after few time & it depends on capacitors u connected .. You can make a reset switch between ANODE of CAPACITOR AND GROUND TERMINAL to stop buzzer instantly. OK?? try it.. :-)
