Are all wireless products such as cell phones or ummm.... home phones and everything else that doesn't use IR, use pulsed magnetic wave, or supersonic sound? I'm making a wireless power device that pulses magnetic fields, is this dangerous to my health? I don't want to be a mutant or be sterile or anything.

Wireless water alarm

Hi all. Hoping I can get some suggestions. I have a water alarm in my basement, when it's sensor gets wet, it beeps. This does me no good since I can't hear it. What I'd like to do, it hack it so that instead of beeping, it lights a led I can hide somewhere in the house. Maybe in one of the wifes stupid knick knacks in the living room. If I just needed to wire the led to the beeper, I could figure that out. But I want it wireless. Any suggestions? Mechanically, I'm good. I know how to assemble, disassemble, solder, etc, but I don't know much about the electronics involved. I'm thinking I can use an inexpensive wireless doorbell as my transmitter and receiver. So, I guess what I need to do, is figure out how to incorporate the doorbell button into the alarm so when the alarm triggers, it activates the doorbell. Then, install an led in place of the chime and hide the whole shebang in something. (If it could also send me a text, that would rule, but it's way outside of my current skill level.) Will it work? How do I do it?

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!

Kit for wireless 8-button joystick?

I have an application where I need to transmit 8 buttons of information to the computer.. I figure the best way to do it would be to use an 8-button wireless joystick kit (or similar).. The software it will interface with will be an educational game on a PC, so a joystick interface is perfect and I shouldn't have to code anything specific.. Are there ready-made kits to do this? I am fairly tech savvy.. Thinking down the road, bluetooth might be a plus since I could compile the program for phones and use the wireless controller with phones as well..

Wireless Push to talk button for walkie talkie

Hi all. I would like to build a wireless push to talk switch for use with my comms set up used for airsoft. I would like to be able to put the switch/button onto my rifle (wirelessly) so I can keep hands on when communicating on the radio. Having to take my hand off the rifle to push the talk button is a pain. The only ones I can find online are commercial and quite expensive. What I hope to do is build a simple wireless switch and modify the current PTT swith to be operated by the wireles one. Can anybody advise me how to do this? Circuit diagrams or hints? A site with ready made plans (wishful thinking) Cheers in advance from New Zealand

wireless charging coil size

So I bought one of these to play with: http://www.ebay.com/itm/130935883579 The transmitter board always gets really hot and smells faintly of something burning.  Is this normal?  Should I use some type of heat sink? Anyway, I discovered that you can add another coil of the same-ish size to the transmitter, and both coils will work.  However, if I remove the coil and add a single coil twice the size, it does not work.  I'm curious as to why.  What determines how large the coil can be?

anybody willing to make an instructable for this? (wireless power schematic)

So, I absolutely love the "Wireless LED Throwie" project here: http://mindtomachine.blogspot.com/search/label/wireless%20power videos: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p0-_ZX2oMyI https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ieGOd2F_8MQ But there's some conflicting info (10uf capacitor in the parts list but 1uf on the pcb template, and pcb doesn't match schematic or what's shown in the video), and some info is just never given (transmitter coil diameter and number of turns). I want something like this where the transmitting coil is much larger than the receiving coils and can hold multiple, rather than the sizes being matched.  I'm hoping somebody a bit more advanced than I am would be willing to tackle this first and take notes.

Wireless switch , need help on how to make

OK , I am a tattoo artist. I want to make a wireless foot pedal to control my tattoo gun. This is how it works now. It has a foot pedal with a 1/4" phono mono jack that plugs into the power unit. When my foot is pressed down it simply closes the connection and tells the power unit to apply voltage to my gun which has a separate cord coming from the power unit. I would like to make a wireless for this. Maybe a simple remote control toy can give me all the conponets needed. I want it to be small , maybe a 9 volt battery supply. I can have my foot pedal  wire just 10" long going to the a sending unit with an antenna. Then alls it has to do is maybe close a relay that I can wire to a phono jack to just close the swicth to tell the power unit to turn on my tattoo gun. I know this is going to be very simple but for some reason im having trouble thinking of how to do this cheap. Thanks for the input. Jeff

Slot car racing - controlling the cars wirelessly

Guys, I and my two boys have a Tomy AFX slot car racing system that we set up and play. We have a load of track so we can set up a long, winding track. The downside though, is that as the speed controllers are connected by a wire, when one of the cars comes off, you have to go over to put it back on the track and one of two things happen; 1) you have to drop the controller, go over to the point where the car comes off, then run back (Me) or 2) run over to where the car has come off, forgetting that the controler is still connected to the track and pull the track apart (the boys) If there was a way of making the controllers wireless, it would be brilliant. It would mean you could stand where you want and not have to waste as much time when recovering your car. As i see it, I would need four independent transmitters, of one channel each. That's about the limit of my knowledge of the wireless bit! The cars get about 22 volts, although clearly the current is not massive. The current controllers are basically a rheastat with a trigger connected to the wiper that contacts the coiled resistive wire. Any of you clever guys out there know of a relativeley cheap and simple way of making this wireless?

Simple wireless on/off switch, possibly using BTE/ANT+ or sth lower tech?

Hi all, I'd like to get your expert opinions on the following: I'm trying to build a simple device. In one circuit, a switch closes. This sends a signal wirelessly to a nearby circuit (~1m away), which receives the signal and turns on an LED. When the first circuit breaks, the LED turns off. Sounds simple. The circuit containing the switch has to be very small/lightweight, and power conservative. I'd like to have more than one of these switches around and by closing either switch the LED would turn on. But these switches must be paired with the LED, so that another separate LED nearby will not be turned on. This led me to think about using something like Bluetooth Low Energy or ANT+, because the modules are really small and can be powered by a button cell battery for months. I can't use IR because there's no direct line of sight. Are there any alternatives besides these two options? If I choose BTE, what do I need apart from the module to get the circuit working? I mean stuff like PC-module connection, battery connection or IC or other stuff like controllers? Thanks :)

Can anybody tell me how to make a wireless headphone and microphone. Both microphone and headphones should be wireless. I found that one can buy a wireless headphone or a wireless microphone, but not a combination of both. Why I need it. I make long phone calls, during which I need to walk around. If I use a cordless phone, I have to keep holding the receiver with one hand all the time. If I use a speakerphone, everybody around listens to the conversation.

Wireless, Wireless, WIRELESS! Help with circuits

Heyall, I just have a seemingly easy problem, but apparently it's not. Everything out there is wireless, doorbells, your electric car key, the fan control, garages, my bike speedometer. With so many wireless circuits, why is it so difficult to find a cheap, inexpensive circuit that a hobbyist can make? No, I didn't mean buy a circuit then mod it. I've searched all over and it's so hard to find a simple wireless solution that includes both a RX and a TX. I've seen Xbee but that's something I would have to use with my Arduino. It's also not exactly 'cheap'. So that get's crossed off the list. Are there any schematics for simple wireless RX/TX button or two that works up to 50 feet? What about schematics for a wireless circuit that works up to 100 feet? For my RC plane I have this TINY receiver that has six channels. The transmitter isn't that big either and it works up to 1 mile! But instead of paying 25 bucks for 1 mile and 6 channels, what about 1 or 2 channels for a 10 dollar circuit? See what I'm jabbing at? I don't want to by a doorbell then start unsoldering stuff from board to mod it! With so many wireless applications out there this should be a walk in the park! If you can give help me I would GREATLY appreciate that! Thanks!

(HELP) Linking Wireless Pir Sensor To Wireless Chime

Hi, I'm trying to use a wireless PIR sensor to activate a wireless MP3 door bell for an art project I'm doing so that when people walk by a particular spot, sound I've uploaded to the doorbell chime will play.  It has to be wireless i'm afraid... If anyone is bored this Sunday afternoon and feels like helping me out I'd be very grateful as I need this to be operational by Tuesday and i'm no electronics expert. To say thanks I'd definitely paypal you some beer money! The wireless PIR is this one: http://chitongda.en.made-in-china.com/prod...or-HW-01G-.html The wireless door bell is this one: http://www.swann.com/webfiles/download/147...P3_Doorbell.pdf Both operate on 433mhz and in my head, this meant it should have been easy to get them to work together. Since then I've been reading a lot about DIP switches that was previously unknown to my technically ignorant mind. So, I've taken a pic of the guts in the PIR and I guess the frequency ID is determined by the pins on the top left that read A0-A7? http://i.imgur.com/HSSyCpa.jpg and the wireless doorbell has 6 DIP switches in the battery compartment like so: http://i.imgur.com/W9fWk41.jpg as well as the door bell button (also wireless). Is it possible to get these to work together, and if so, how would I do this with a minimum of hassle that someone with little electronics expertise like myself can understand? A very large thanks to anyone who can help my befuddled mind get around this!

Quick Question on Wireless Transmitters

Hi folks,  So I am in the process of getting an electrical device made (a people counter) and I would like to know what you think the best way of transferring the count data from the device (that will be in the doorway) back to our online dashboard is? Do I just need to integrate a wireless transmitter into the device which can then be added/paired to the network by the venue owner/manager? Or perhaps I also need to provide a wireless receiver that plugs into the wall?  Once the data has gone from the device to the venue wireless, how does it then get back to our servers and into the venue online dashboard?  Thanks! Jon
