RFID Computer login

I wanted a simple way of quickly logging on to my computer without having to typing my password in and did not want to have no security either. There are various products on the market that would solve this problem from fingerprint readers to proximity dongles but i decided to see what i could knock up with parts i mainly already had. Looking in my micro stuff i had a RC522 RFID tag reader 3.3v : Also an 3. ...

Alexa, Put the Kettle On!

Make a smart kettle for under £60 using Alexa and Arduino. Introduction Why make two trips to the kitchen, or hang around waiting for the kettle to boil when you can just ask Alexa to put the kettle on? This project uses as few components as possible and is really easy to follow but it does involve tinkering with mains powered devices and water. So be careful and always make sure the kettle is unplugged whe ...

Home Security featuring 4Duino-24

Home Security project is a password oriented security device. This uses 4Duino display as the user interface where the password can be entered. 4Duino is also used as the host device in this project. It handles a buzzer, an ultrasonic sensor, a uCAM-II and a magnetic switch. As a home security device, it sends an alarm to the owner when there is an attempted entrance or any malicious kind of entrance. Initi ...

How to Text Yourself when your DSC PC1550 Home Security System Alarms

I have a home security system that was installed when my home was built in the early 1990’s. It is, or was until I modified it, a wired perimeter system with a single wired motion detector. The system is a DSC PC1550 and originally was monitored by a well known alarm system service, a three letter acronym beginning with the letter “A”. Anyway I stopped paying for the monitoring long ago. More recently I dec ...

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 ...

Arduino Security Alarm with Reed Switch

How does the security alarm circuit works? When power is turned on, the circuit goes into standby mode, and this condition is indicated by “SECURITY ALARM” in the LCD screen.Note that here a N/O reedswitch + bar magnet combination is used to detect any mishaps, and hence the reed switch should be in “closed”state at standby mode. When reed switch is opened, pin 2 of Arduino goes high with the help of the pu ...

Security / Automation Sensors using Arduino

Security system sensors such as motion detectors, reed switches, pressure mats, glass-break detectors, infra-red beams, and conductive film can be very handy for all sorts of things including home automation systems, interactive art installations - and sometimes even security systems! Almost all security system sensors provide a simple switched output that changes state based on whether the sensor has been ...

Security Sensor Shield

Security Sensor Shield description: This shield allows up to 4 security sensors to be connected to an Arduino with full End-Of-Line (EOL) support to detect tampering with the sensors or cable. End-Of-Line technology allows the system to detect a variety of events using a single cable pair to the sensor, including: Security Sensor Shield specification: PIR (passive infrared) motion detectors. Microwave motio ...
