Smoke Detector Rework for Remote Use With Experiments

Introduction: Smoke Detector Rework for Remote Use With Experiments

One of the guys on our forum (TEEP forum) came up with the great idea of placing a Smoke Alarm over his Bedini work station, I have gone a little further with this idea.

I do all my experiments out in the Shed, if I put a smoke alarm out the and something was to happen over night I would have no idea it was happening, I doubt I would ever hear it.

So to combat this problem I have reworked a smoke alarm to work remotely.

many of you will find this a easy task but for those whom are not so keen I have created a detailed video on how to do it.....

hope you all enjoy... and please thumbs up my vids if you think I've done a good job :)

If you enjoy my experiments, Come join me at teep.forumco.com

Take care all :D

    Maybe look into Arduino mate, they have just about everything you'll want for such a project, however I've never built one so that is all the help I can offer. but that will get you off to a running start

    Hi there,
    I really wish to carry out this project, but the video "does not exist"...I'd be really happy if someone could post the correct link, please?
    Thank you

    Thanks for the video, it did a pretty good job of teaching.
    A PDF with macro shots would be very nice for letting people save the instructable on their own computers for reference.

    Keep it up!
