Simple Basement Security System using Arduino




In this project I will show you how to build a very simple security system for all kinds of rooms. It might be simple but still effective. It is based around an Attiny85 and uses a reed switch and a key switch as inputs to see whether an intruder has accessed the room. A buzzer will then notify you or other persons. Let’s build it

Step 1: Watch the video!

The video gives you all information to build this simple security system. But I will cover the most important steps again.

Simple Basement Security System using Arduino schematic

Step 3: Build the circuit and connect the external parts!

Here you can find the schematic for the circuit. I also uploaded my layout for the stripped PCB. If you build it exactly according to my layout then the chances are higher that everything will work in the end.

And don’t forget to make interruptions in the copper traces! Those are the yellow dots in the second layout.

If you managed to finish the circuit then go ahead and connect the external parts like the reed switch or the key switch to the main PCB. Use my picture of the PCB as a reference.
