How To Use the Alarm from an Alarm Clock in Something Else?

I wanted to make an alarm type thingy, ad I want to use the alarm from an alarm clock. I don't know how though, I tried connecting a cell to the wires that were already on the alarm, but it won't work. I think it's one of those piezo-electric crystal thingies. And I know I have to have pressure on it to work. How exactly would I use it?

Will this Latching Laser Alarm circuit work? Answered

Hello everyone ^^ I'm here to ask about this circuit. I've been searching for a laser alarm circuit for a long time which locks itself when the beam is broke and keeps the alarm running unless if I want to press the reset button without the use of a relay. Unluckily, I wasn't able to find that kind of circuit in google... AND IT FELT HORRIBLE!!! =O Ahem ahem! Anyway, I've come up with an idea of combining the latching push ON and OFF circuit and the Laser alarm circuit. Will it work? please reply =(      WILL THIS WORK--

Wireless activated buzzer/alarm

Can someone help me with this? I need a wireless activated buzzer or alarm. Similar to the cheap wireless doorbells where you push the button on the remote and the bell rings. Release the button, and it stops. But it needs to be a loud sounding buzzer or alarm, fairly high decibels, and did I mention very inexpensive? Also, the buzzer/alarm part needs to be as small as possible. I appreciate all your help!

Distance Alarm?

Hello, I am interested in seeing if I can create some sort of alarm for my 10 year old son.  He has autism and I'm looking for something kind of like a house arrest ankle bracelet BUT i don't want it to track where he is. (Not at this point anyway).   For now i just want to see if I can make a distance alarm.  I would strap a bracelet to his ankle and I could carry the alarm unit in my pocket to If he got more than 100 feet from my device I would hear an alarm.  He has an issue with wondering away and the electronic monitoring companies want to charge hundreds of dollars to put a house arrest type monitor on him.  If i could make  something that would warn me when he starts to wonder that would be amazing! Can anyone point me in the correct direction? Thanks

Car Alarm

I just had an idea.... Someone needs to make a car alarm app for smart phones. It can use the microphone to listen for breaking glass, the speakerphone for playing pre-recorded messages (step away from the vehicle, the police have been called), the camera can sense movement inside the vehicle and the GPS can sense (and report) movement of the vehicle. All of this information can be sent in real time to the other phone that you carry with you. Installation is as easy as turning it on and tossing it in the seat! Compatible with any car! Battery backup! :)

Short range battery operated 2 part (door alarm type) distance sensor.

Hello all! I'm looking to design a range compact distance sensor that will sense 1-4 ft increments. If necessary i could modify a door alarm. id like to fab one or multiple if need be to sense the distances noted. I could utilize a buzzer or some way to record a voice that would alert to said distance. The battery voltage max is 4.2v dc and if it could be rechargeable that would be a plus. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

An Alarm Clock Idea - No Lights, No Sound

I'm a pretty deep sleeper, and I don't wake up very fast in the mornings, which is bad since I ride the school bus to school. I set my alarm clock, with a high volume, but it still doesn't wake me very good. I've thought of trying to make an alarm that flashes a strobe light, something like a deaf person might use, but didn't think it would work very good. So, my idea now is to think of a way to make an alarm clock that gives pulsating shocks when it goes off. I have absolutely (well, 99%) no idea how to connect it up, nor how to produce the shocks. I'm thinking a shock with high voltage, but low current, like static electricity. I figure that should wake me. Do y'all have any ideas, or better suggestions? Also, do you think that the shocks (if usable) would cause any dangerous effects on my health? Thanks!

How to build a max distance alarm

I've been searching for an instructable that does that but couldn't find it. The basic idea is to put a small as possible tag to something(unpowered if possible) and have another small thing that can fit in your pocket. If the tag goes more than, say, 4,5 or 6 meters away your pocket box would warn you. I think its a great idea to protect from thieves but no idea on how could I build a device like that. Thanks

Just to make sure! 30A to charge battery?

Hey! I have an old home alarm system which is broken beyond repair. I just wanted to make sure if it is OK to charge the 12v battery at 2.1 or2.4 Ah with an ATX PSU at 30A? Will the battry just take 2A from it? If not I have the transformer that came with the Alarm, would that be safe to charge with? It's 12v BTW. Thanks. Never can be too careful. Also, I'm using it on a scanner light tube, this will be fine, yes? I have the starter, it is not a problem. It's weird though, when it is lit, you can pull out the ground on the light tube, not the starter and ut still stays lit. Weird. Thanks in advance!

DC power drop alarm Answered

I need a very simple way to see if power is ever lost to load.  I am trying to run a long term test of at least 60 days.  I have a UPS that is powering a load and I need to be able to determine if the 12 - 15 V dc that the UPS is providing is ever lost. The UPS has a battery that will supply power if the AC input is lost.  The solution can be very simple and I really don't want the load to be reconnected if the current going to the load is ever lost. I need to know if the load is ever not powered, even for a brief instant.  I was hoping there might be some type of switch that would open if the current stopped flowing through it.  Sorry for the simplicity but I know very little about electronics.  Thanks for any help or advice.

How do I make an arduino into a personal alarm clock?

Dose anyone know how to build a super easy to use alarm clock using an arduino? I am prototyping different types alarm systems and trying to solve one person's specific problem with managing bed time. I welcome any: ideas, suggestions, hunches, guesses, or building plans. Just a few things: the clock has to use an arduino and it has to be portable. The reason why I'm building it myself instead of buying an alarm clock is that it needs to be utterly simple and have personal meaning to the user. I am open to it not having to use an arduino. It should be easy enough for a child 6 years old to use. They should be able to set the time and the alarm on their own.
