Arduino PIR motion water gun




first what youll notice my grammer isnt the best 🙂
ok what youll need: 1 transister/mosfet that can handle the current for the water gun motor, this is the one i used –

Step 1: The code

first, upload the code. go to the bottom of this page – http://www.ladyada.net/learn/sensors/pir.html – copy and then paste it in the arduino ide, then change the LED pin to digital pin 3, then save the code in the ide, then upload the code to your arduino.

Step 2: Wiring up the PIR

follow this wiring diagram for the PIR. yellow jumper is out or signal, black is ground, and red is positive

Step 3: The circuit

now build this circuit on a bread board, but know that you wont get it to work the first time. and its very picky on how you put the jumpers, especially around the mosfet/transistor.

Step 4: The box

now, i built a box from some 1/4 luan plywood and some VERY heavy duty super glue called “2p-10” made by fast cap. but im not going to tell you exactly how to built it because it depends on how you want to rig it all up and how big your water tank is.
