Things used in this project
Christmas Present Intruder Detector
Want to know when your kids are messing with the presents? Now you can!
Using the Arduino MKR1000 board, Adafruit accelerometer, piezo and Ubidots, parents can now keep track of spying little eyes.
The project is able to fit on a half-breadboard, use 3M VHB tape to secure your LiPo battery to the bottom of the breadboard. Feel free to use a larger Piezo if necessary, the one included in the instructions will produce a modest alarm.
Connecting the MKR1000 to the Ubidots cloud will allow for push notifications to be sent to your phone immediately upon activation.
- Upload code to your Arduino MKR1000.
- Place board inside of gift to be monitored.
- Get ready to stop those prying eyes!
The project works by detecting acceleration on the Z-axis. When the SI unit is greater than 10, the audio alarm sounds and notifies you immediately.
