Automatic Home surveillance system using arduino(simple and cheap)

The goal of my project is to achieve Automatic home surveillance system without any manual interference. In general other surveillance system it is necessary to power ON TV and camera receiver every time. And also it needs to any user input to view who is standing out side. But in my project both are not necessary because it automatically control power of TV and camera receiver and my project doesn't need a ...

Automatic Garden Watering Device – Arduino

As part of the Content Creation course for my MLIS degree (Our class blog: http://scumakers.wordpress.com/ ), I needed to come up with a final project and wanted to learn to use an Arduino. In the end I came up with this device to automatically sense when the soil in my garden is dry and turn on a switch to water it. I know there are other devices out there that do the same thing and probably do it better, ...

Washer Dryer Laundry Alarm using Arudino & SMS Text Messaging Alerts

Have you ever wished there was a better way to be notified when your laundry was done? Have you ever forgotten a load in the washer because you couldn't hear the buzzer and your clothes became smelly and moldy from sitting there for too long? Well, I have and decided to solve this problem by building this simple notification system using an Arudino microcontroller. It uses a dual-axis accelerometer to detec ...

Arduino Automatic Watering System

INTRODUCTION & OBJECTIVES: I is a simple system, using Arduino to automate the irrigation and watering of small potted plants or crops. This system does the control of soil moisture, doing indications via LEDs and in case of dry soil emitting a alarm beep. In case of dry soil it will activate the irrigation system pumping water for watering plants. The system uses a LCD display to notify all actions tha ...

Build Arduino Based Home Security System Using PIR Motion Sensor

PIR sensors are widely applied in wireless residential security systems, home alarms systems and many more security circuits as motion detector sensors. A typical PIR sensor detects the infrared red (IR) waves from human body and so it is also known as ‘human sensor’. It would be wonderful if we interface PIR sensor to Arduino to get some cheap home security systems, isn’t it? How to Interface PIR Wireless ...

Low Cost Water Flow Sensor and Ambient Display using arduino

Water is a precious resource. Millions of people do not have access to clean drinking water, and as many as 4000 children die from water contaminated illnesses every day. Yet, we continue to be wasteful with our resources. The overarching goal of this project is to motivate more sustainable water use behavior and raise awareness about global water issues. This is an instructible on how to crudely detect wat ...

Arduino automatic watering system

[caption id="attachment_19540" align="alignright" width="210"] Fig. 1: Author’s prototype[/caption] During summers, most people are too lazy to water the potted plants on their rooftop gardens every day. Explained in this section is a simple and exciting plant watering system that you can build yourself in just a few hours. It is an Arduino based automatic plant water-feeder system that uses a soil moisture ...

Ceiling Fan LED Display using arduino

Seeing so many persistence of vision ideas on the web was too tempting not to try one. After considering several different motors to drive a display, a ceiling fan seemed to run at just the right speed, is out of the way, and very quiet compared with alternatives. With a micro controller based on the Arduino, this project provided plenty of both software and hardware learning and besides, the kids were invo ...

Secret Knock Final using arduino

Secret Knock Description - My final project is a door lock that listens for your personalized knock. The lock uses an arduino board and a piezo speaker and will not unlock the door unless the specific pattern is used as a knock. Arduino Program - /* Detects patterns of knocks and triggers a motor to unlock it if the pattern is correct. By Steve Hoefer http://grathio.com Version 0.1.09.20.09 Licensed under C ...

Secret Knock Detecting Door Lock using Arduino

Protect your secret hideout from intruders with a lock that will only open when it hears the secret knock. This started out as a bit of a joke project, but turned out to be surprisingly accurate at judging knocks. If the precision is turned all the way up it can even detect people apart, even if they give the same knock! (Though this does trigger a lot of false negatives, which is no fun if you're in a hurr ...

The Soil Temperature Sensor using arduino

You are building a soil temperature sensor. We need a waterproof thermometer that we can burry in the soil. The sensor is made up of a small circuit enclosed in a piece of heat shrink (to waterproof it). Supplies: (see the parts page) an LM335 temperature sensor a 33K and a 56K resistor a short piece of glue-lined heat-shrink tubing soldering iron and solder lead wires The circuit for the actual sensor This ...
