Arduino Security Alarm

Introduction: Arduino Security Alarm

About: i am gabriel ,from chennai,tamilnadu. I create new gadgets to change the Future

Hi, this is my new arduino security alarm project. I made it with simple materials. An ultra sonic sensor, a led,buzzer,breadboard and my arduino. IF any object move there, the will glow and the buzzer starts beeping.This helps from robbery.This always alert you and little useful in our life.

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Materials Required:

1.An arduino board

2.a Breadboard ultrasonic sensor(HC-SR04)

4.a Led

5.a buzzer

6.Jumper cables

Step 2: Connect the Ultrasonic Sensor to the Breadboard:

connect the trigger pin to the digital pin 13

connect the eco pin to the digital pin 12

connect vcc to 5v

connect the gnd to the gnd pin

Step 3: Connect the LED and the Buzzer :

connect the cathode of the led to the anode of the buzzer,so you get one +ve and one -ve.

connect the +ve ends of those to the digital pin 10.

connect the -ve ends of those to the digital pin gnd

so you get the led and buzzer to be triggered.

Step 4: Coding......

copy and paste the code to your IDE:(dont worry about the led1)

#define trigPin 13
#define echoPin 12

#define led 11

#define led2 10

void setup() {

Serial.begin (9600);

pinMode(trigPin, OUTPUT);

pinMode(echoPin, INPUT);

pinMode(led, OUTPUT);

pinMode(led2, OUTPUT); }

void loop()

{ long duration, distance;

digitalWrite(trigPin, LOW);

// Added this line delayMicroseconds(2);

// Added this line digitalWrite(trigPin, HIGH);

// delayMicroseconds(1000);

- Removed this line delayMicroseconds(10);

// Added this line digitalWrite(trigPin, LOW);

duration = pulseIn(echoPin, HIGH);

distance = (duration/2) / 29.1;

if (distance < 4) { // This is where the LED On/Off happens digitalWrite(led,HIGH); // When the Red condition is met, the Green LED should turn off digitalWrite(led2,LOW); } }

Step 5: You Are Done.
