Friday fun: Arduino PIR Alarm
Here is another great project courtesy of makemagazine featuring John Park, host of Make: Television, showing how to build a PIR (passive infrared) based motion alarm using an Arduino.
More information on the Arduino PIR Alarm can be found here: http://makeprojects.com/Project/PIR-Sensor-Arduino-Alarm/72/1
You can buy the PIR here: http://www.makershed.com/product_p/mkpx6.htm
As John points out, because of their cold body temperatures this PIR alarm is ineffective against zombies, but may be useful against other beasties!
Have a great zombie free weekend ~ Jim
PS: I forgot to follow up the last post regarding the Sony SL-HF-2000 Beta VCR that is still in the box. I'll try to follow up later this weekend.
