Help with motion detection idea Answered
I had an idea for a dramatic halloween set up where the porch light turns off as the person approaches the door and turns back on again when they leave.
First off I don't even know if this is possible. I assume I would need a PIR motion detector and arduino to make this work. I have had some experience with very basic electronics but never anything like arduino so I wouldn't know how to begin programming something like this. I'm guessing I wouldn't be able to use the actual porch light so I plan to set up another light bulb.
I would love any advice as I want to make this idea happen but I simply don't know how to approach it. Thank you!
