Hi Guys in this instructables we will learn how to use Flame sensor with Arduino. So basically flame sensor is a sensor which can detect fire/ flame in any place so this project could be a easy & helpful Project which can help to avoid fire in any place.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Things You Need
Step 2: Connections
The Connections for this small project is very easy please refer the shown schmatics in image.
Step 3: Code
Please copy the following code and Upload it to arduino :
/* In this part of the code we are going to define pins for Flame sensor, LED and buzzer which are connected to Arduino. Flame sensor is connected to digital pin 4 of Arduino. Buzzer is connected to digital pin 8 of Arduino. LED is connected to digital pin 7 of Arduino.
Variable “flame_detected” is used for storing the digital value read out from flame sensor. */
int buzzer = 8;
int LED = 7;
int flame_sensor = 4;
/* In this part of the code, we are going to set the status of digital pins of Arduino and configure */
/* This line of code reads the digital output from flame sensor and stores it in the variable “flame_detected”. */
flame_detected = digitalRead(flame_sensor);
/* Based on the value stored in “flame_detected”, we have to turn on the buzzer and LED. In this part of the code, we compare the value stored in “flame_detected” with 0 or 1.
If its equal to 1, it indicates that flame has been detected. We have to turn on buzzer and LED and then display an alert message in Serial monitor of Arduino IDE.
If its equal to 0, then it indicates that no flame has been detected so we have to turn off LED and buzzer. This process is repeated every second to identify the presence of fire or flame. */
if (flame_detected == 1)
Serial.println("Flame detected...! take action immediately.");
Serial.println("No flame detected. stay cool");
Step 4: Final Test
So as you can see after uploading the code whenever sensor will detect a fire the Led Will light up and buzzer will start making sound to alert you from fire.
